This role is initially a 10 month FTC, with the potential to become permanent.
About the role
As the Senior Relationship Manager (Philanthropy) you will be responsible for identifying new supporters, working closely with the wider team to steward existing donors contributing to philanthropy income target of £1.4 million for 2019-2020.
The role is a mixture of new business and account management, and you'll have the opportunity to work with the wider team to develop imaginative and memorable cultivation and stewardship activities.
Working towards the team target of £1.4 million for 2019-2020, you'll be building strong relationships with existing supporters to engage new potential donors through peer-to-peer fundraising. You'll also be creating high-quality impact reports, proposals and other inspiring donor comms.
- You'll have significant experience of fundraising relationship management and building relationships with high-level stakeholders such as philanthropists, CEOs and Chairs

- You'll be a fantastic communicator, compelling and engaging both in person and in your written work. You'll be able to make complex information persuasive and easy to read
- You will have a proven track record of securing five and six-figure donations from individuals, or transferable examples of meeting and exceeding significant targets in a fundraising or relationship management role
You'll be joining a truly agile organisation. If you need to start late, finish early or fancy a change of scenery, that's fine, the organisation's agile working policy focuses on what you achieve, not desk time. Alongside flexible working, other benefits include 27 days' holiday plus bank holidays.
If you're as excited by this opportunity as we are, please send a copy of your CV (WORD doc.) to our major donor consultant, Philippa Bryant, and she'll be in touch with lots more information. 020 7939 7443/ [email protected]
