Prospectus is excited to be partnering exclusively with ClientEarth to help them recruit for a new Trust and Foundation Fundraising Manager 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 £40,000 to £45,000 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 working across their programme areas and geographies to cultivate new funder relationships, developing winning proposals, and ensuring a growing and diverse funder base. As a representative of ClientEarth, the post holder will be liaising and building relationships with funders internationally and will be the primary point of contact and key relationship manager for new donors. The post holder will also have line management responsibility, overseeing the work and professional development of a Business Development Officer who is expected to both support the Manager with their accounts and lead on their own portfolio.
They are looking for someone with significant and demonstrable experience of working in a charity, NGO, private or public entity drafting complex proposals for trusts, foundations and statutory institutions (including EU) and securing multi-year, six and seven-figure grants. The post holder will need experience of successfully managing the relationship development process with a new donor, from prospect identification through to cultivation encompassing both personal engagement with prospects and/or coordinating the input of colleagues from across the organisation.
The post holder will be responsible for developing new relationships with trusts and foundations in the UK and around the world to support their work.
