Prospectus is excited to be partnering exclusively with ClientEarth to help them recruit for a new Senior Grants Officer (Fundraising) to join their expanding team. ClientEarth are a team of over 200 people across eight offices, dedicated to protecting life on Earth. They work in over 50 countries, ingeniously using the law to create systemic change. They focus on the most pressing environmental challenges, because a future in which people and planet thrive together isn't just possible - it's essential.
This post is offered as a full-time permanent role paying £33,150 to £35,000 per annum to be home based until the end of restrictions with an eventual part-time return to the London Office. They have established a new universal flexible working framework that means the role will only have to go into the office 20% of the time with 80% home or distance working.
The post holder will be responsible for leading on a range of grants and its key relationships (internal and external) with an emphasis on funder liaison and stewardship, reporting on existing grants, and translating technical legal and policy language into compelling and interesting narratives. The post holder will be joining a growing team which manages a dedicated funding portfolio attached to ClientEarth's programme teams and play a central role in communicating their impactful work to external stakeholders - in particular funders including private trusts and foundations and institutional donors.
They are looking for someone with experience in managing six and/or seven figure grants/gifts and reporting to private foundations including trusts and foundations. The post holder will have experience drafting proposals and securing funding from foundations and other funding institutions (six and/or seven figures) with significant knowledge of budgeting, and organisational finances.
