Job description

Prospectus is proud to be partnering with the London Community Foundation (LCF) to recruit their new Head of Development. Despite being one of the most prosperous cities in the world, London is a place that exclude and marginalise. LCF exist to raise funds to tackle the issues affecting London and the Head of Development will be central to raising significant funds from major donors and corporate partners.

The London Community Foundation

Head of Development

Brixton, London (hybrid working in-office and from home)

£45,000-£50,000 per annum

You will lead on the planning and implementation of high-value new business activity. You will research, identify, engage and manage a pipeline of major donors and corporate partners. Typically, partners join LCF at the £50,000 level all the way up to £1million partnerships, so you will be comfortable pitching and securing different levels of funding. Reporting to the Director of Development and Communications, you will work within the LCF leadership alongside four other peers, contributing to culture, behaviours, and cross-organisational projects.

The selected candidate will enjoy working in a new business setting and will quickly be able to connect donors and their aspirations to the amazing, life-changing work of London's grassroots organisations. You will have diplomacy and tact when dealing with external stakeholders and enjoy both building relationships with current donors and new prospects and will be able to point to experience in both settings.

At Prospectus we invest in your journey as a candidate and are committed to supporting you with your application. We welcome all candidates to apply, regardless of age, sex/gender, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital status or pregnancy/maternity. If you have any disability and require reasonable adjustment/s to any part of the process then please contact Ryan Burdock at Prospectus.

If you feel you meet some of the criteria but not all, we really hope you'll enquire and learn more. Prospectus can advise and support on each part of the role and hopefully your application, so we look forward to hearing from you.

In order to apply please submit your CV in the first instance. Should your experience be suitable, we will arrange for a meeting to brief you on the role. You'll then have all the information you need to formally apply. We are looking forward to connecting with you soon.
