Job description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Community Fundraising Manager to join our Fundraising Team on a 12 month fixed-term contract.  This role will require the successful candidate to shape how the charity works with different community fundraising audiences (regional corporates, volunteer fundraisers and groups, educational institutions, eventers and formal community groups) to bring people together and raise funds for The Children’s Trust. 

Experienced in developing and delivering a community fundraising strategy and a natural leader, you will lead the Community Fundraising team to deliver the portfolio, ensuring that income is maximised from this important revenue stream as we enter into a new strategic period at the charity.

This is a fantastic opportunity to evidence your strong relationship skills and strategic approach to building lasting partnerships with our community of supporters.  With experience of working in a complex environment, across a large and diverse workforce, you will be exceptionally organised with a high-level of attention to detail.  You will naturally possess excellent inter-personal skills, and an ability to consult and positively engage with key stakeholders across the organisation.

If you would like to discuss the role please contact The Children's Trust directly, and the People Operations Team will be more than happy to assist you.

PLEASE NOTE: The Children's Trust Application Form MUST be completed and submitted, in order for your application to be considered.  As part of the shortlisting process, gaps in employment will be examined and will be further explored during the interview process. 

Closing Date: Tuesday, 5th May 2020

Interview Date: w/c Monday 11th May 2020

Strictly no agencies please.

As we often receive high levels of applicants for our roles, we regret that we will only be able to contact those applicants who are shortlisted for interview.  Therefore, if you have not heard from us within 2 weeks of the closing date, please assume you have not been shortlisted for interview on this particular occasion.


The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with acquired brain injury, providing expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care at our national specialist centre in Tadworth, and to children and their families across the UK, via our Brain Injury Community Service. 

Boasting a beautiful 24-acre site in Surrey, we are located just outside of London, close to the M25 (accessible via Junction 8, A217 to Tadworth) and easily accessible via National Rail, by way of: Clapham Junction, Sutton and Epsom.

The work we do is highly rewarding, and in addition to an attractive salary, we offer a valuable range of benefits, including: free on-site parking; subsidised cafeteria; on-site staff accommodation (subject to availability); the ability to retain your NHS pension (where applicable) or the opportunity to join an alternative scheme; and the opportunity to develop and implement your expertise in an environment that is as unusual in its beautiful historic nature, as it is unique in its state-of-the-art facilities.

The Children’s Trust is fully committed to protecting children and young people.  All posts at The Children's Trust are subject to an enhanced DBS check.  If you are applying to The Children's Trust, and are already registered with the DBS update service, this will speed up the recruitment process significantly.  We are an equal opportunities employer, and welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, regardless of their race, sex, disabilities, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation, or age.
