Job description

Job title:              Philanthropy Manager (London and East of England)


Department:     Major Giving


Team:                 Philanthropy Individuals


Location:            Hybrid role – up to two days per week in the office but this may vary depending on workload and projects undertaken. The role will need to be able to travel between London and areas around Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Hampshire and Essex.


Date:                   October 2021


After a highly successful 20/21, the NSPCC’s Philanthropy team is keen to maintain the positive momentum it has established and is looking for a London based Philanthropy Manager to help raise the funds needed to continue the NSPCC’s fight for every childhood.


The Philanthropy team is part of the NSPCC’s Major Donors department. We focus upon high level, individual donors and are responsible for securing major gifts ranging from four to seven figures.  Our success is founded upon building high quality and enduring relationships between the NSPCC and those with the capacity to make transformational gifts. 


The Philanthropy Manager post works at the heart of a strong and friendly team, collaborating closely with colleagues across different fundraising functions and at all levels of the organisation.  We have a strong service presence in London and there will be opportunities to meet our service delivery colleagues and learn more about the incredible programmes we deliver, ensuring you’re fully immersed in the issues and able to inspire both new and prospective donors to give.


As well as having a portfolio of London based donors, this post would also be responsible for building new relationships outside of London, across the East of England.


An ideal position for an energetic deal-maker, you will be responsible for existing high value relationships but you will also have a focus on new business, generating new prospects, building lasting relationships and making asks for substantial financial gifts.


You will…

  • have great people skills and the credibility to operate within our audience stream.
  • have the “get up and go” to work in a new business environment.
  • be an excellent manager of professional relationships, proactive, self-motivated and organised.
  • be comfortable with targets and able to deal with competing priorities.
  • enjoy working collaboratively with other colleagues, teams and departments.
  • have first class written skills, able to tell our story in a compelling way.
  • have the ability and willingness to travel around London for meetings.
  • and of course, share our passion for keeping children safe.


Above all, you will relish getting out, identifying new prospects and asking them to support the NSPCC.


If you’ve worked with high value donors or clients, have generated new business or can demonstrate great account management, we’d welcome your application. 



As an organisation, we are committed to creating and fostering a culture that promotes safeguarding and the welfare of all children and adults at risk. Our safer recruitment practices support this by ensuring that there is a consistent and thorough process of obtaining, collating, analysing and evaluating information from and about candidates to ensure that all persons appointed are suitable to work with our children and adults.
