We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Trusts Officer to support the delivery of an ambitious fundraising target. This is a hands-on role for someone with good, demonstrable experience in delivering trust fundraising income and managing relationships with charitable trusts and foundations.
Joining a friendly, motivated and supportive fundraising team, you will be required to collaborate with colleagues within the charity, including the research and philanthropy teams, to develop confident approaches and compelling proposals. You will be responsible for the management of all existing relationships and expected to generate a strong prospect pipeline to grow the portfolio of small, medium, large and multi-year funders.
If you would like to learn more about this role, please do contact Maisie Johnson at The Cure Parkinson's Trust. We request no contact from recruitment agencies or media sales.
The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) is the only organisation in the UK solely dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s. We work with funders and institutional partners around the world to initiate and fund fundamental research and ground-breaking clinical trials.
Parkinson’s is a debilitating neurological condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK and 10 million people worldwide. It is characterised by tremors, rigidity, slowness of movement and many other symptoms. There is no cure. The treatment of Parkinson’s has not changed significantly in over 50 years - i.e. the treatment of symptoms only - and some of the side effects of existing symptomatic treatments are as troubling as the condition itself.
CPT believes that a cure is within reach. Numerous recent scientific advances in the field lead us to the view that it is funding, not science, which is holding up effective treatments that slow, stop or reverse the condition. Our ground-breaking Linked Clinical Trials (LCT) program is a high-profile example (re-purposing - against Parkinson’s - existing treatments used for other conditions, based on sound biochemical evidence): many trials are underway, but there are many more to fund.
