Are you a highly motivated and organised self-starter with excellent communication skills? Do you want to be part of an award winning organisation that makes a difference? If so, Family Action has an exciting opportunity and would love to hear from you.
At Family Action we transform lives by providing practical, emotional and financial support to those who are experiencing poverty, disadvantage and social isolation. We have been building stronger families since 1869 and today we work with more than 60,000 families in over 200 community-based services, as well as supporting thousands more through national programmes and grants. Family Action won Charity of the Year at the 2021 Third Sector Awards.
We are looking for a Trusts and Grants Fundraiser to join our successful Fundraising Team within a highly dynamic and ambitious organisation. You will be responsible for managing a diverse portfolio of small and medium trusts and foundations, working collaboratively with colleagues across the organisation to create exciting projects and develop ideas into compelling applications.
We are looking for someone with initiative, a will to learn and who takes pride in producing high quality written work. This role is a great opportunity for someone who has relevant experience and is looking to further develop their skills in fundraising and/or the charity sector. You will be able to meet deadlines, prioritise your workload effectively and build strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
Reporting to the Trusts and Grants Manager, you will help to expand our prospect pipeline and grow income from trusts, foundations and statutory funders, to have a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged families across the country.
We are committed to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all that we do and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQIA+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we are committed to increasing the representation of these groups at Family Action. We know that greater diversity will lead to even greater results for families and children and strive for our workforce to be truly representative of the diverse communities we support. We offer a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled applicants and will reimburse your travel cost if you attend an interview.
What will we offer you?
We’ll offer you flexible working hours, a generous pension scheme and leave entitlements, eye care vouchers, a cycle to work scheme and other great benefits. We have an excellent wellbeing offer and we’ll invest in your professional development with on-going quality training and career development opportunities. You’ll join an established, supportive and high-performing team and have the opportunity to thrive in an innovative, non-hierarchal organisation that values your opinion, encourages learning and has the needs of children and families at its core.
We are forward looking, ambitious and committed to continuous improvement. We are a people focused, can-do organisation, which strives for excellence in all we do and operates with mutual respect. If you share these values and behaviours and have the necessary skills then we look forward to hearing from you.
