Prospectus is delighted to be working with Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) to recruit an Advisory and Business Development Senior Manager who will shape and lead CAF's Charity Advisory proposition and strategy, taking a lead role in relation to business development across the department. In addition, develop their bespoke grant-making and special project work. Please note this is a 12 month maternity cover contract.
The overall purpose of this role is to be responsible for leading CAF's strategic consultancy work with charities in the UK; specifically on strategy, fundraising, governance, impact and resilience. You will lead on strategy and assignments to achieve significant year on year growth in income annually, co-ordinate the production of quality proposals in response to business leads on behalf of the department and lead responsibility for bespoke and high-value grant-making assignments for UK and international grant-makers. Leading retention and growth of CAF clients and driving business development with new clients, whilst acting as a primary source of expertise for colleagues is a big part of this role.

As a natural team player you will be equally adept at facilitating a challenging discussion with the senior leadership team of a large charity, as you are at interpreting the charitable aspirations of corporates and philanthropists. Most importantly you will be able to demonstrate a commitment to CAF's mission and your ability to contribute to it.
