Prospectus is excited to be supporting The Ramblers in the search for their new Trusts and Grants Fundraiser. You will be joining a small, committed and successful team to build and maintain strong relationships with a range of grant-giving funders, with the view to fundraising for The Rambler's various programmes.
As the Trusts and Grants Fundraiser, you will work with public, statutory and Trusts funders and you'll be responsible for completing bids, funding applications and appeals, as well as managing reporting and stewardship of existing funders. You will report into the Head of Fundraising and will also have informal coaching responsibilities with colleagues as appropriate, in particular the Fundraising Development Officer, with whom you would work closely with.
You will need to have previous experience of successfully applying for statutory or Trust funding and have an ability to create opportunities by packaging work into fundable projects to increase income. You'll need to have strong prospect research skills as well as expertise across the full donor journey. To enjoy the position, you'll like working as part of a small team and taking ownership in your role. You'll also be tenacious, creative and a strong communicator.
