Prospectus is excited to be working with a leading homeless organisation who offer a variety of services for homeless people. As well as people who sleep rough, they support those who are vulnerably housed; sofa surfing or living in temporary accommodation. We are working with them to help recruit for the newly created position of Trust and Foundations Fundraising Officer to join their growing and ambitious team.
You will be tasked with working alongside the Head of Fundraising to draft and submit bids to four, five and six figures to trusts, foundations and statutory bodies. This position will involve building cases for support, working across different teams and occasionally being needed to support in other fundraising activities. Specifically, you will focus on researching new funding opportunities and reporting back on existing funded programmes to a portfolio of grant makers.
They are looking for a strong copy writer who has a passion for the work they do and a track record of delivering five figure bids. You will have worked in a trust fundraising role previously and will be able to hit the ground running at the beginning of the contract. Crucially, you will enjoy working very closely with service teams and beneficiaries and will ideally have a strong understanding of the current funding landscape for the homelessness sector.
Interviews for this post will be conducted remotely and are scheduled for no later than Friday 19th June, so apply today to find out more!
