Job description


Prospectus is excited to be working with Sand Dams Worldwide to help them recruit for a Trust Fundraising Manager to join the team. Sand Dams Worldwide aims to support the world's poorest people by helping them to transform their own lives through soil and water conservation in drylands. The Trust Fundraising Manager will source new trust funding while maintaining and maximising funds from existing grant-makers.

The role is offered as a full-time permanent position to be initially home based with a salary of £32,000 to £35,000 based on experience.

The chosen candidate for this position will grow the annual trusts and foundations portfolio by developing and managing the existing pipeline and submitting bids for grants at a four and five figure level, while assisting with six figure bids. You will aim to maximise income by identifying and researching new opportunities for funding through awards and grants. As well as this, you will be tasked with maintaining clear and detailed records of all trust fundraising communications.

Sand Dams Worldwide is looking for a candidate with a proven track record of working autonomously to secure five figure bids from trusts and foundations. You will have strong communication skills with experience of building and maintaining relationships with prospective grant makers. This is a great opportunity for someone who is passionate about improving and developing the lives of some of the world's poorest people.
