How to apply
Could you inspire major donors to support the John Muir Trust’s vision of a world where wild places are respected, where nature flourishes, and where the value of wildness is shared for the benefit of everyone? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join and complete the Trust’s Fundraising team. We are seeking a dynamic individual to take responsibility for growing income from new and existing major donors.
This permanent role will involve research, proposal writing, cultivation and stewardship and reporting. The right candidate will have initiative, drive, and outstanding relationship building and communication skills. Comfortable dealing with high net worth individuals and with a track record of income generation, you will work as part of a team to achieve ambitious fundraising targets.
An affinity for the Trust’s work is a must, as is the ability to quickly connect with and influence people. Experience in a similar third sector role would be an advantage, but is not a prerequisite. The chosen candidate will have the opportunity to play a key role in ensuring the success of the Trust’s fundraising strategy and making a positive difference for wild places. With flexibility in location for the right candidate – the Trust has offices in both Edinburgh and Pitlochry – the role is advertised as full-time, but a part-time position (minimum three days per week FTE) may be considered dependent on experience and skillset.
Skills, Experience and Attributes:
Hours: Full-time (part-time - 0.6 or 0.8 - may be considered dependent on skills and experience)
Pension: 5% employer contribution paid into a group pension scheme
Line manager: Head of Fundraising
Location: Negotiable, preferably Edinburgh or Pitlochry
Closing date: 5pm on 21st January 2019
Interview date: To be confirmed
