Fundraising Development Manager (Trusts and Foundations)

This is an exciting time to join the Global Major Gifts team at Compassion in World Farming International and contribute to delivering our mission to end factory farming. With growing awareness of the impact of factory farming not only on animal welfare, but on human health and the environment, now is a unique moment to be raising money for Compassion’s work and bringing new supporters on board.

In this role, you will manage a varied portfolio of Trusts and Foundations in the UK and internationally (excluding the US), including existing five and six figure donors. You will also be responsible for researching, cultivating, and applying to new supporters. In addition, you will manage our small to medium-sized Trusts and Foundations programme, developing effective communications to grow and steward this group efficiently and effectively. You will report into the International Head of Major Gifts and work in a dynamic and supportive team of seven major gift and trust fundraisers based in the UK and US.


• Track record of generating income from philanthropic sources to meet income targets.
• Ability to write persuasively (including compelling cases for support and funding proposals).
• Prospect research skills.
• Account management experience - ability to build strong funding relationships.
• An excellent team player, with great communication skills.
• Passionate about Compassion in World Farming’s International work.
