Job description

Prospectus is excited to be supporting BookTrust in their search for a new Trusts and Foundations Officer to join their high value giving team during a very exciting time in its journey.

BookTrust are the UK’s largest reading charity, reaching millions of children every year with books and support to get every child reading, regularly and by choice. Children who read are more likely to overcome disadvantage caused by inequalities – they’re more likely to be happier, healthier, more creative and empathetic, and experience better mental wellbeing and self-esteem. There are myriad ways in which reading can enrich and change lives of children and families for the better.

This role is integral in supporting BookTrust to develop its presence in the trust and foundations world. You will help to develop and manage a high-quality pipeline of new trust and foundation opportunities and inspire them with the potential of BookTrust’s impactful projects. Alongside exciting development work, this role will be responsible for stewarding and engaging their growing portfolio of warm supporters to provide inspirational impact reporting. This role will provide the successful candidate with excellent career development opportunities in the sector and invaluable experience such as supporting a multi-million-pound Arts Council England grant. This officer will also work alongside a strong Fundraising team and share the space with the Books and Design teams.

The successful candidate will have a knowledge of and experience in fundraising, perhaps in a broader fundraising role that has touched on trusts and foundations. You will have a strong desire to develop your skills in grant giving, as well as a desire to make a difference to disadvantaged children and families.
This is a hybrid role, based from their offices in Battersea, London. It has a salary of £30k - £35k.
