This role is a fantastic opportunity for someone wanting a career in the charity and fundraising sector. We are open to receiving applications from people with limited fundraising experience, but who have significant transferrable skills and experience to the role. Please ensure you clearly demonstrate in your supporting statement how your past experience and skills fit with the skills and experience that we are seeking in the person specification.
Our charity relies on donations and to help us raise the important funds that we need, we are looking for a Trusts and Grants Fundraiser to join our friendly team in a ‘Partnerships Fundraiser’ role.
Meningitis Now has an established programme of Trusts and Grants fundraising. The successful candidate will be responsible for all applications and relationships with grant funders that are capable of making a gift of up to £5,000. This will involve stewarding relationships with a number of long-term loyal donors and also seeking support from new donors.
The successful candidate will have excellent written skills, the ability to distil complex information into concise and inspiring information for donors, and be highly organised with demonstrable administrative experience. You will feel at ease speaking over the phone, email and in person with a broad range of people, for example families affected by meningitis, colleagues, senior leadership, Trustees, administrative staff at funders, volunteers and high net worth individuals. You will have investigative abilities to research funders and seek out new, relevant funding opportunities for the charity. Being able to work independently is an essential skill, but you will also need to be able to work with colleagues and contribute to the goals of the team to succeed in the role.
In return, we offer a wide range of benefits, including:
- 30 days annual leave per annum, pro rata plus bank holidays
- Enrolment into our employer matched pension scheme (matched up to 5%)
