The Fundraising Coordinator is an essential role within Restless Development’s small yet growing fundraising team. Responsible for raising unrestricted income through individual giving and community fundraising, and be the lead for our CRM database. Currently the vast bulk of financial support at Restless Development comes from multiyear restricted grants. To ensure we are reaching our aims of maintaining a balanced budget and sustainable growth, we are committed to increasing investment in the Fundraising team in London with a view to growing unrestricted income year on year. The Fundraising Coordinator is key to this, working closely with the Senior Philanthropy Manager, senior leadership, trustees and patrons to network with and cultivate new and steward current financial supporters.
We are looking for a passionate, self-driven individual with a desire to learn about philanthropy. The successful candidate will not require any fundraising experience. You’ll need to be passionate about what Restless Development do and be able to clearly explain and present that work and impact to our supporters. Restless Development will provide on the job training to support the successful candidate in this role. This role is part of a small team, so the successful candidate will be a team player who is willing to support the wider team whilst balancing their own workload. There’ll be the occasional late night at an event, and you could be expected to accompany supporters on a visit to see our work in action in Africa or Asia. Once this role is established, we are looking to invest in this area of the team so we are committed to the Fundraising Coordintor’s professional development.
