Are you a passionate and proactive individual who is willing to test and manage the implementation of new ideas processes? Do you have a proven record of working in a charity fundraising environment and of winning and/or managing five- and six-figure grants? 

If so, join St Giles Trust as our Fundraising Manager, where you will contribute to the implementation of our new Fundraising Strategy 23 – 26, plus have line management responsibilities and lead a sub-team who will have the responsibility to generate at least £500,000 per year. 

About St Giles Trust

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others.                            

About this key role

As a valued and integral part of the Fundraising and Communications team, our successful candidate will lead a small sub-team to generate at least £500,000 income each year, including the direct line management of a Senior Fundraising Officer, who you will support to line manage the Fundraising Assistant.  We will count on you to implement effective processes and procedures across the fundraising and collaborating teams, manage and refine processes for recordkeeping and devise, maintain and update our Fundraising Handbook.

You will also be expected to manage the development and implementation of our Individual Giving Strategy and our Individual Giving income stream through single and regular giving appeals, as well as managing a portfolio of challenge events nationally that provides excellent stewardship for a range of participants. Developing and designing high-quality applications, presentations, and pitches to secure five-, six- and seven figure funding opportunities from Trusts & Foundations, Community Partners and High Net Worth Individuals is a key element of this role, as is providing excellent stewardship to existing donors.

What we are looking for

  • Expert knowledge of the fundraising landscape
  • Experience devising cultivation and solicitation strategies and database management
  • Knowledge of fundraising best practice and regulations and of anti-discriminatory working practices
  • Excellent interpersonal, relationship-building and communication skills, with the ability to write compelling, tailored and informative copy for reports, applications and external communications
  • Ability to think strategically and develop innovative ideas to help us stand out to existing and new donors.  

In return, you can expect a competitive salary, generous leave allowance, staff pension, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, clinical therapist sessions, life insurance (4 x annual salary), duvet days, season ticket loan, employee perks programme, eye care voucher and much more.

We are an equity and inclusion confident employer.
