About the role
In this newly created role, you will develop income from corporates and trusts and foundations. You will identify strategic funding opportunities and develop relationships that make them possible.
With corporates you will facilitate partnerships with organisations who wish to provide financial or in-kind support to dementia initiatives. With trusts you will write compelling applications that get to the heart of Dementia Adventure and that are supported by data and research.
You will join a small and passionate fundraising team who work collaboratively. You will currently manage and mentor one fundraiser responsible for researching grant funders, writing small grant applications, challenge events, some community fundraising and supporting the team generally.
We are looking for an experienced fundraiser with a track record of securing income from a relationship based fundraising program. You will have corporate partnerships experience and ideally some experience securing funding from trusts, foundations or statutory.
You will be pro-active with the ability to identify opportunities and the confidence to start conversations with prospects that result in financial and in-kind support.
