Fundraising Manager -- This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Fundraiser, with a proven track record, wanting to help enrich young lives and make a difference for young Londoners by raising vital funds for St Andrew’s Club in Westminster, the world’s oldest youth club.
Purpose of Position
Over the last few years, the Club has developed a diversified portfolio of fundraising programmes to help us in our ambitions to raise vital funds for growth and sustainability of our important youth provision, with a strong focus on support from Trusts and Foundations, for both project and core funding.
Following a recent restructure at St Andrew’s Club, the former post holder has been promoted to Chief Executive and the Club is now seeking a new, self-motivated, talented and ambitious professional Fundraising Manager to build on the success of the last few years and for whom the opportunity to shape the future of this unique organisation and make your own mark on it will hold huge appeal.
As the principle fundraising resource, you will be adept at working under your own initiative. However, your role will see you work closely with the Chief Executive, the Youth Club Manager and a Fundraising Group of committed Trustees.
This is a diverse role that reflects where we are at as an organisation - a new leadership team, with energy and ambition to grow the membership of, and the funding for, the world’s oldest youth club.
You will come with a strong track record of cultivating relationships with a wide range of supporters and will take ownership of the Club’s fundraising strategy of delivering a costed annual mixed fundraising plan to provide a pipeline of core and project income that will grow the existing programme and meet the annual income target.
Effective stewardship and retention of existing Trusts and Foundations support will be key to your early success, as will timely reporting and acquisition of new support from this source.
In addition, you will lead on broadening the Club's local recognition and support to develop income from local corporates and neighbours; manage the Regular Giving Supporter Programme and plan and deliver the Club’s 3-4 annual fundraising events. You will also line manage the Communications & Fundraising Officer to ensure optimal messaging and content across our various platforms and media.
You will be joining an organisation committed to delivering outstanding provision for its members, and a staff team committed to enriching young lives. Our commitment to training and support will help optimise your own development.
Your passion and commitment to the cause will be critical to your success in the role, as will your ability to articulate with great confidence, the huge impact that St Andrew’s Club has on those that it serves.
Please read through the Job Description and apply online with your CV, as well as a covering statement, demonstrating how you meet the skills and experience of the JD. Applications will not be considered without a covering statement.
Interviews will be held at St Andrew's Club on Tuesday 22 October 2019 and successful candidates will be informed of their interview time w/c 14 October.
