Job description

Are you a talented trust fundraiser that truly loves dogs? Then this could be the perfect job for you! 

Dogs Trust is looking to appoint two outstanding Trust and Foundations Team Managers to expand and increase trust and foundation donations to Dogs Trust and Dogs Trust Worldwide.

These two exciting additions have been created to further enhance the success of the charity’s high-performing Trust and Foundations Team and will be responsible for developing strong and enduring relationships with trusts and foundations either in the UK or overseas, with a focus on raising six-figure and multi-year gifts.

Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. As the largest dog-welfare organisation in the UK, we rehabilitate and rehome over 14,000 stray and abandoned dogs a year at our 21 rehoming centres. Dogs Trust Worldwide is an affiliate charity to Dogs Trust whose aim is to improve the welfare of dogs around the world and protect them from maltreatment, cruelty and suffering.

Based in London and reporting to the Head of Trusts and Foundations, these roles are an exciting opportunity to make a significant impact on trust and foundation income at Dogs Trust and Dogs Trust Worldwide. Each Manager will have responsibility for leading a team of (currently) two Trust Officers. One team will have an emphasis on raising funds for Dogs Trust Worldwide (and Dogs Trust to some degree), while the other team will raise funds solely for Dogs Trust. 

Successful candidates will be outstanding communicators and have extensive knowledge and experience of trust fundraising. They will be adept at building enduring and fruitful relationships both with staff internally, and externally with trustees, trust correspondents and other key contacts.

Alongside these new Manager roles, we are currently recruiting two existing Trust and Foundation Officer posts (one of which is a maternity cover role). As a result, the successful candidate(s) may be line managing one or more new team members. Both appointees will be experienced managers and must also, therefore, be used to building rapport and providing supportive team management for a team member who may also be settling into their new role. Ideally for the Manager role that will mainly be securing funds for Dogs Trust Worldwide, you will have a highly successful track-record of trust fundraising for international projects.

The people who work for us bring ambition, passion and a determination to succeed in all they do, coupled with warmth, integrity and a sense of fun. The person we are looking for will combine a genuine love for dogs and their welfare with a professional, ambitious and can-do attitude – they will be far sighted and get the job done in a collaborative and engaging way. 

We also have a comprehensive benefits package, which includes excellent annual leave and contributions for pensions. If you are a hugely talented trust fundraising Manager, passionate about dog welfare and looking for an ambitious career move, then we’re keen to hear from you. 

These posts will be based in Dogs Trust London Office. (Initially there will be flexibility around location of work including working from home; interim flexible arrangements will be discussed at interview stage)

First interviews will be held in the week commencing 20th September.
