We are recruiting a Senior Fundraising Officer – Trusts and Foundations, who will play a key role in our small and successful fundraising team. A confident and capable fundraiser, you will bring vital capacity to this side of our income generation and work closely with the CEO, Senior Leadership Team and fundraising manager.
About the role:
This senior fundraising officer role is a new position, ideal for a creative and ambitious fundraiser who is seeking a role where there is an opportunity to develop and step-up professionally.
If successful, you will join a small fundraising team where from the start you will enjoy real responsibility.

You will also work alongside senior staff including our CEO and Senior Leadership Team to develop larger, strategically significant proposals.
Although your main focus will be fundraising from Charitable Trusts and Foundations, you will have the chance to broaden your experience by working with the fundraising manager to develop and maintain the fundraising presence on our website and social media. You will also provide administrative support for the team, including keeping up to date records.

The right candidate will have excellent written communication skills, and be able to translate a passion for our work into inspiring funding applications, reporting and account management.
They will also be a self-starter, capable of managing multiple priorities and a team player with excellent people skills. Finally they will enjoy build relationships with supporters and inspiring them to continue supporting our work.

We offer kinship carers expert advice as well as financial, legal, practical and emotional support and understanding from the moment they need it, for as long as they need it.
