Job description

Closing date: 23rd February 2020 at 11.30pm
Interviews: 2nd or 3rd March 2020

If the opportunity to lead and grow Shelter Scotland’s Trusts & Foundations programme sounds like the kind of challenge you'd relish, then join us as a Senior Manager. We’ll provide the infrastructure, the strategy and the rewards, including flexible working. All you need to bring is knowledge of fundraising best practice across trusts and lottery disciplines and proven experience of achieving ambitious income generation targets.

Shelter’s Income Generation team is primarily London-based. This challenging role however, will be based in Shelter Scotland’s Edinburgh office, with a reporting line into the Head of Trusts and Foundations, based in London. Collectively, the team will raise close to £40m to support Shelter’s work across a diverse range of income streams, including Retail, Individual Giving, Community & Events and High Value Partnerships, which incorporates Trusts & Foundations.

About the role
Your challenge? To act as an external face for the charity and meet agreed annual and long-term financial targets by cultivating high value partnerships with UK and Scottish grant-makers to fund Shelter’s work in Scotland. You’ll also work closely with our Directorate Leadership Team to develop compelling and strategic funding propositions and ensure the high quality stewardship of all trust and lottery donors. Finding opportunities to deepen partnerships and secure new grants that could transform our income base will be important too. And, as well as line managing a fundraising manager, you’ll need to foster a collaborative and results-focused working ethos by providing effective management and support to the Trusts and Foundations Manager who’s also based in Edinburgh.

About you
You’ll need strong commercial awareness and good knowledge of the Trusts market. You’ll also need the ability to quickly develop an understanding of how to position Shelter as a partner for major grant-makers. Adept at building and managing complex and high-value customer and internal relationships, you have some line management experience too. What’s more, you’re proactive, creative and innovative, with the ability to respond positively to change and a willingness to challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas when appropriate.

We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.
