Could you be The Proud Trust's brand-new Head of Business Development and Fundraising?

From small beginnings The Proud Trust has grown into a £1 million charity with 700 service users (touching the lives of 5000 young people and adults each year) and a footprint extending beyond Greater Manchester across the North West region… and now potentially beyond. The goal: to develop their reach across England.

The Proud Trust is the home of LGBT+ youth. They're a lifesaving and life-enhancing organisation helping to empower young LGBT+ people to make positive change for themselves and their communities. Through youth groups; one-to-one support; managing the LGBT+ Centre in Manchester; training, events, and campaigns.

Owning and leading the income generation strategy, you'll ensure funding is sustainable across all income streams from the traditional fundraising spectrum, to commercial business opportunities available through The Proud Trust's purpose-built £2.4 million home in Manchester city centre.

This is more than just a fundraising role; you will also deputise for the CEO and lead a team of managers and staff with oversight of HR and Finance so a fantastic development opportunity for a brilliant fundraising leader looking to broaden their portfolio and gain additional skills.

What will make The Proud Trust's new Head of Business Development and Fundraising truly exceptional?

* Broad knowledge across income streams, with a current focus on grant funding cycles and ambition to diversify (corporate earmarked as huge potential)
* Builds meaningful relationships and successful partnerships with external agencies, relevant stakeholders and funders
* Big-picture thinker; able to demonstrate significant growth in previous roles
* Influential leader with the ability to motivate, inspire and nurture talent
* Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills with contagious enthusiasm and passion for the potential of LGBT+ young people

Please note, we would warmly welcome applications from candidates within the LGBT+ community, aswell as their allies.

Flexible, life and family-friendly organisation
£38-43k salary with ability to appoint across the band
