HideOut Youth Zone’s state-of-the-art £6.6m facility opened in September 2020 to provide an engaging and inspiring place for thousands of young people aged 8 – 19 (up to 25 for those with additional needs) to spend their leisure time.  Open 7-nights a week, 52-weeks a year plus school holidays, the Youth Zone’s incredible facilities include a 3G pitch, 30ft climbing wall, boxing/mixed martial arts gym, 4-court sports hall, sensory room, fitness suite, recreation area and dance, arts, music and media suites and much more. 

This is an exciting and formative time for HideOut Youth Zone as we move towards our full capacity offer (having first opened during the Covid-19 pandemic). Two years on from opening, we are seeking to expand our successful Patrons programme by inspiring other individuals in and around Manchester to offer their support with annual donations ranging from £25k to six-figure gifts, whilst also building a broad programme of support upwards of £1k.  The Philanthropy Manager will play an integral role in this endeavour, working with the Director of Fundraising, the CEO, key members of the Board and our existing Founder Patrons to generate new philanthropic income for our work with children & young people and stewarding existing supporters.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A demonstrable track record of income generation through personally securing at least four figure major donor gifts from high-net-worth individuals.
  • Experience of developing a new pipeline of high-net-worth individual prospects and being pro-active in converting these to active donors.
  • Experience of delivering effective and practical fundraising strategies.
  • A sound understanding of high-net-worth fundraising techniques and processes. An ability to think and act strategically to move forward high net worth donor relationships, understanding their needs and motivations.
  • Ability to build rapport with new contacts, quickly and effortlessly. Strong and persuasive written and verbal communication skills, and an ability to listen.
  • High level of determination and resilience that, through innovative approaches, delivers exceptional results
  • Knowledge and understanding of the issues faced by children and young people.
  • A clear commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and demonstratable impact in this area.
