Prospectus is delighted to be supporting the Sustainability Hospitality Alliance (SHA) in its search for a permanent Fundraising Officer (full-time or part-time) to join its supportive and friendly fundraising team.
Sustainable Hospitality Alliance builds on the strong legacy of its predecessor organisation International Tourism Partnership (ITP) which was founded in 1992 (originally named the International Hotels Environment Initiative) as part of the International Business Leaders Forum. Now an independent charity, SHA focuses on working with the hospitality sector to address key challenges affecting the planet and its people and creating sustainable growth programmes within the hospitality sector.
As the Fundraising Officer, you will be responsible for supporting the Head of Business Development to deliver a broad fundraising strategy. This will include securing income from existing donors and developing new relationships with trusts and foundations and high-value partnerships. Already well connected to the hospitality sector, this role will have the opportunity to maintain key relationships with several hospitality foundations to secure repeat funding and secure funding for a range of youth employment, human rights, and environmental programmes.
To be successful as the Fundraising Officer, this person will have proven experience in securing income from trusts and foundations through compelling grant applications. This person will be confident in maintaining existing relationships, as well as prospecting for new donors and engaging them through various communication methods. They will have strong writing skills and ideally have some knowledge or a passion for sustainability issues.
