We are currently looking for a full time permanent Philanthropy Manager to join our team.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is a non-formal education and learning framework operating in more than 130 countries and territories around the world, through which young people’s achievements outside of academia are recognised and celebrated.
We at The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation are the engine that drives and supports the Award’s growth, access and impact across the globe.
It is our long term ambition that every eligible young person aged 14 – 24 will have the opportunity to participate in the Award. Our vision is that 20% of them are from at risk and marginalised communities for whom the Award can be truly life-changing.
The purpose of this role is primarily to build long lasting, highly engaged philanthropic relationships. This includes donor research, due diligence, recruitment, renewal, development and delivery of appropriate communications material and donor relationship management.
We are looking for an experienced and self-assured major gifts fundraiser who can proactively lead, cultivate and steward major donors internationally, predominantly with a focus on 5/6 figure gifts.
The role will work closely alongside one other Philanthropy Manager to build a comprehensive relationship with our incredibly generous donor groups, ensuring that they feel part of our charitable work, feel able to contribute and able to introduce their friends and colleagues to our work. It is envisaged that this role will require an even split between front facing donor engagement and high-quality donor relationship management.
To apply for this role, please enure that you submit a cover letter with your CV.
The closing date for applications is the 16 July 2020. Interviews will take place shortly after the closing date and we are looking for the successful candidate to start as soon as possible.
This job is unlikely to attract a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship (formerly a work permit). Applications from candidates who require Tier 2 immigration status to work in the UK may not be considered if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates. To apply for a Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship, employers need to demonstrate that they are unable to recruit a resident worker before recruiting an individual overseas.
