Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice helps babies, children and young people who are seriously unwell, and their families, make the most of every day. The charity aspires to become a centre of clinical excellence for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. We’ve been on a major upward trajectory in recent years, with more children being supported, more major hospitals being partnered with and more supporters donating. We’ve transformed from being an enthusiastic start-up delivering care in the community, to a serious player delivering major impact both in the community and at our state-of-the-art hospice building, The Ark, opened in 2019. Philanthropy, which covers both Major Donor and Trust fundraising streams, is pivotal to Noah’s Ark – typically accounting for more than 50% of the charity’s overall income. The successful candidate will manage the Grants, Trusts & Foundations programme which has been expertly led and is now an area of real success. However, we know that we can go much further still. The Senior Philanthropy Manager will benefit from working as an integral part of a high-performing and super supportive team, ready for its next exciting growth phase. The Senior Philanthropy Manager will line manage an existing Trust Fundraiser and work closely with the Senior Head of Philanthropy & Partnerships, with guidance from the Director of Fundraising & Communications, to manage and develop the trust pipelines, along with instrumental work on developing a structure around corporate and community application processes. The post-holder will be key in taking the philanthropy programme to the next level, securing new multi-year grants, supporting with applications to key corporate foundations and establishing lasting relationships with funders.
You will be a dedicated, organised and reliable individual. You will show determination to succeed and have a solutions-focused outlook. An exceptional and eloquent communicator, excellent at managing your time and a natural relationship builder; you will have an eagerness for cross-team working. Whilst direct experience in all fundraising areas isn’t a prerequisite, you will have confidence in your ability to add value through collaborative lateral thinking and through supporting other team members with their applications, as well as acting as a key liaison with our care team to obtain latest information about service delivery. If you have experience of leading a trust fundraising programme to an outstanding level, including securing numerous six-figure grants, we would love you to apply.
