Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.
This is a truly exciting time to be joining FFI’s Fundraising Team. We have been honing our fundraising and have created what we believe to be an industry-leading programme, built on developing and nurturing long-term relationships with the people who support our conservation work.
The Trusts & Foundations team is an ambitious team which has supported growth in income. In 2019, FFI raised circa £23 million, of which £11m came from trusts and foundations. Our success to date is far reaching with current relationships spanning Europe, the USA and Australia. Now we have set our sights on expansion, developing new opportunities across Europe and in the USA.
We are seeking a Trusts & Foundations Account Manager to join our successful team. Committed to conservation and the environment, you will use your relationship management skills to strengthen existing funding relationships, cultivate opportunities already identified, as well as identify new sources of income for FFI. Using your excellent written skills and knowledge of good project development and delivery, you will work directly with FFI’s conservation programme teams to turn their visions into accurate and compelling proposals and reports. Confidence in face to face meetings and networking is essential as you may be required to travel both in the UK and internationally to cultivate relationships with current and prospective donors. You will be as tenacious as you are persuasive, and your excellent interpersonal skills will enable you to build strong working relationships, and extract information to meet FFI timelines.
You will have a proven track record in trusts and foundations fundraising or in a comparable field. Experience in securing funds from the USA, mainland Europe and other international foundations is desirable, as is experience of working with programme staff internationally.
In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within an exciting, friendly and lively team within an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.
Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
