Are you a Trust and Grants Fundraising specialist with an interest and passion for supporting young people? Do you want to work for a unique youth charity that provides incredible support to young people across the UK, often in the most disadvantaged areas?
With state-of-the-art facilities that include gyms, dance, music and art studios, as well as career and employability advice, these centres are indispensable to their communities and have incredible impact reports. They are so much more than youth centres, getting right to the heart of complex needs and issues affecting young people.
Throughout the pandemic, they have worked innovatively and creatively with funders to continue to reach young people and provide vital support.
As Trusts and Grants Manager, you'll generate income via revenue and capital bids, supporting the development of collaborative internal projects. You'll develop the case for innovative youth work activities and services offered by centres across the UK, building relationships with prospects to generate an active pipeline and actively stewarding donors. There is also huge opportunity to deliver funding for targeted projects such as employability, mentoring, inclusion, and mental health initiatives.
Who is our perfect candidate?
First and foremost, you're a trusts and grants expert. An exceptional fundraiser who understands the nuances of trust and grants fundraising, expertly bridging the gap between bid writing and relationship-led funder stewardship.
You'll be able to demonstrate a strong track record of cultivating meaningful relationships with funders; verbally, face-to-face and in writing.
Flexible, life and family friendly organisation with a happy, healthy culture. Remote or office-based at your local centre depending how you prefer to work.
If you're passionate about supporting young people and are interested in joining a fast paced, entrepreneurial charity, please send your CV to Amelia Lee at Charity People for more information.
