Writing high quality medium and large funding applications, tailored to funder need, to secure restricted and unrestricted trust and grant income for the charity.
Working with the Trusts & Grants Manager in developing larger, more complex revenue and capital funding applications and proposals as required.
Maintaining and updating records, communications and prompts on the fundraising database, using this to generate a workload of timely applications, reports and letters of thanks.
The successful candidate will possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, demonstrating good use of grammar and meticulous attention to detail. They are required to be numerate and financially astute with an ability to interpret complex financial and statistical information. Proven experience of successfully raising income from charitable trusts, foundations, lottery or statutory sources would be highly advantageous.
