We are searching for an ambitious fundraiser to take the lead on our fundraising efforts. The ideal candidate will have a strong fundraising track record and an appetite to grow with our organisation.
TalentEd is a fast-growing charity dedicated to creating a fair education system. We match retired teachers with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to boost their confidence, aspirations, and attainment through tailored tuition. We are in the middle of an exciting growth journey – we were recently selected as one of only 33 providers to deliver the government’s flagship National Tutoring Programme. In 2019-20 we doubled the number of students we worked with from last year, and we are on track to double again this year.
Fundraising is a core part of our model. We fundraise to support our core costs, and to develop innovative programmes like the Maths Masterclass Tutorials. The role will involve managing existing partnerships with funders such as Garfield Weston or Nesta, as well as bringing in new funders. This year’s fundraising target is £250,000, and we have ambitious plans to grow that in future years.
