Job Description

Job Title:  Trust & Foundation Fundraiser

Reports to:  Head of Income & Marketing

Location: Borough High Street, London SE1

Salary: £31,500

Contract: Permanent

Hours: 37.5 hrs per week.

Background and Purpose

We are the only UK-wide charity and free membership organisation for everyone affected by a genetic bleeding disorder. We aim to empower people affected by a bleeding disorder to live life to the fullest; offering support, including events and local groups, the latest news and in-depth information resources, and campaigning and advocacy to demand the best possible care, safe and effective treatment, and equitable access for everyone affected by a bleeding disorder. 

There are over 4,500 members of the Haemophilia Society, including people and families living with bleeding disorders, as well as healthcare professionals. The charity’s supporters help fundraise the costs that are vitally needed to be able to offer membership – and services such as events and printed publications – entirely free to all members.

More than 36,000 men, women and children in the UK have a diagnosed bleeding disorder, and this number rises every year.

What we do:

Support each other
We understand each other. We offer advice and support from personal experience. Our growing community is there for each other because we’re in it together.

Raise awareness
We rally together because every little thing we do makes a difference and gives hope to people living with a bleeding disorder.

Make a lasting difference
We influence and advocate on what matters to our community. Health and social care policy, access to treatment and much more.

About the Role

In this key role, you will be instrumental in developing relationships and securing new funding through new partnerships with a range of Trusts and Foundations at a local, regional and national level. 

You will maintain and build on current funding partnerships, and support the Head of Income and Marketing to develop both Trust and High Value Partnership strategies. You will have a lead role in securing new income from higher-value, multi-year partnerships which cover both core, unrestricted funding, and specific projects i.e. THS’s youth programme. 

This is an exciting time for The Haemophilia Society. In November 2021, we launched our new 3-year strategy, along with a refreshed brand which better reflects our mission, values and ambitious plans. We are a small team of passionate, hard-working people with a diverse range of interests and experiences.
