About the role
In this role, you will develop compelling fundraising proposals about our varied projects, and manage your own portfolio of small to medium trusts and family foundations (giving up to £10,000).

Who we’re looking for
To succeed in this role you will need the ability to communicate effectively with a variety of internal and external stakeholders, while promoting the values of the charity. Strong written and interpersonal skills are essential, and experience in a trust fundraising role (or similar) is desirable.
If you have the skills, knowledge and drive that we are looking for, and are passionate about making a real difference to the lives of those experiencing homelessness, we would love to hear from you.
