This is an exciting time to join our ambitious fundraising team. Both our Trust and Corporate functions have grown significantly over the past two years. This role will crucially enable the team to build on its successes to date to maximise opportunities, steward our growing portfolios, secure new partnerships and raise vital new income.
The Cares Family is an anti-racist organisation committed to advancing anti-racism. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, who are under-represented in our organisation. We are an equal opportunities employer.
In your role as The Cares Family’s Partnerships Manager (Trusts and Corporate) , you will work closely and collaboratively with our Head of Development, Grants Coordinator and five regional Development Coordinators, to provide exceptional relationship management for our active grants and portfolio of hundreds of Trusts and Foundations (80% of the role); identifying new opportunities and engaging with new and existing funders through composing timely and high quality written proposals and impact reports, and ensuring stellar stewardship and relationship management face to face, on the phone and in writing to maximise opportunities, uplift gifts and secure new income for The Cares Family.
You will also support the Trust function through direct line management of our Grants Coordinator to succeed and reach targets in terms of outputs and income; and supporting the Head of Development in reviewing, and overseeing submissions of proposals and impact reports across The Cares Family.
This role will also support our growing Corporate Partnerships function to thrive (20%), working closely with the Head of Community Fundraising and the Development of Director in order to secure new partnerships and leverage new income.
You will also directly line manage our Corporate Partnerships Engagement Coordinator, who manages and oversees our corporate employee engagement and volunteering opportunities. This includes ensuring effective communications and collaboration with delivery teams to fulfill the objectives of each partnership agreement.
With so much of this role depending on excellent account management, we need a real people person and someone who has a track record in securing new income. This role is also highly collaborative, and therefore, we also need you to be an enthusiastic team player and passionate about sharing your knowledge, skills and experience with our dedicated team to facilitate success.
If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
