This is an exciting opportunity for a proactive self-starter with excellent organisational and people skills to join a vibrant and growing team within Resurgo. This role centres around managing a caseload of high net-worth individuals (major donors), keeping them updated on the work of Resurgo and informed of funding opportunities, through individual engagement and stewardship plans, communicating directly with key donors (including meeting regularly with them) and giving them the opportunity to see our work first hand.
As part of your role to develop the funding pipeline and further develop and deliver the major donor strategy, you will identify and contact new prospects, undertaking research where required, and working with high level volunteers including Trustees and other Resurgo teams such as Corporate Partnerships.
The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills and be a confident and charismatic individual, able to quickly gain the trust of others. This will be of key importance as you work closely with an external Events Manager and the Head of Philanthropy in planning and executing Resurgo's annual fundraiser, where you have particular responsibility around managing guest relationships.
Your written communication skills will be equally inspiring, as you develop tailored compelling proposals and other materials for major donors, and you will be a capable project manager, supporting the Senior Donor Relations Manager to deliver a programme of strategic events to further engage both current donors and new prospects with Resurgo’s work.
Supporting the Senior Donor Relations Manager, you will have a good grasp of data-monitoring systems, using systems to capture information on donors and prospective donors to meet fundraising and communications objectives, and regularly monitor and report on income.
You will be an active Christian with a desire to express your faith through your work.

As part of the Resurgo team, you will have the opportunity to see life-changing work first-hand, and at the same time be part of our strong coaching and feedback culture that allows our staff to thrive.
