Do you want to play a key role in an organisation which stands up for children? Join us as Philanthropy Manager and play a critical role in driving long term meaningful relationships with valued major donors, leveraging income for Save the Children's key priorities.
In our Marketing, Fundraising and Communications department, we fight for children every single day. We inspire millions of people, from individuals to large corporates, to support our quest for change. We go the extra mile - and we don't rest until the work is done.
As Philanthropy Manager you will manage a portfolio of existing donors and new prospects through a variety of personalised and creative approaches. You will proactively prospect, generating new links through peer to peer approaches and active networking, generating over 80 meetings a year. You will steward existing high value donors with excellence, understanding their motivations for giving and delivering a bespoke donor journey. Additionally you will:
- Work collaboratively and effectively within the organisation, developing positive, solution focussed relationships, taking an agile approach, working with other departments and team when required to deliver the best donor experience
- Work with the CEO's office, trustees and senior volunteers, to seek new opportunities and to help enhance or recognise our donor relationships.
To be successful you will be an excellent communicator with strong influencing and relationship-building skills, as well as at least 2 years' experience of working in a fundraising environment, preferably with a high value audience. In addition you'll have:
- Demonstrable experience of raising donations of a minimum of 10k
- The ability to collaborate & work across teams, building both strong internal and external networks
- Excellent written skills, including development of compelling communications for donors
- The ability to plan, prioritise and manage a varied and demanding workload to meet deadlines.
At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.
Please note that we are open to different working arrangements and would consider flexible/part time hours for the right candidate.
If you share our belief in the power of children, join the fight. It takes relentless determination, creativity and a real commitment to real change. Because every child should be able to make their mark on their world, and help to build a better future. We look forward to hearing from you.
