The Leeds United Foundation Fundraising

Partnership & Philanthropy Executive  - Full Time

Fundraising & Events Officer – up to 22 hrs per week.

The Leeds United Foundation is the official charity for Leeds United Football Club. The Foundation aims to use the power of sport to educate, motivate, inspire, and support people in a catchment area which is one of the most economically and socially diverse communities in the UK. As a major organisation in the region we are in an excellent position to make a difference to the people we serve.

We have an ambitious strategy and are rapidly expanding the services and support we offer to our beneficiaries in Leeds. Through over 25 distinct programmes we supported more than 20,000 individual beneficiaries last year.

In line with our growth, we are seeking two enthusiastic and experienced individuals to create and own a range of charitable income programmes.  A Partnership & Philanthropy Executive, a member of our Executive Team, to lead all aspects of corporate, legacy and partnership fundraising and to support them, and a Fundraising & Events Officer to drive our individual giving programmes.

This team will be responsible for driving the delivery and growth of our fundraising portfolio and play a role in developing other income streams. These are key positions for us and great opportunities to join our team, focusing primarily on owning and developing our plan, prospecting, stewardship of relationships at corporate and individual levels, delivery of fundraising goals and of course excellent record keeping. ​

This is a fantastic opportunity to bring your corporate and individual giving fundraising skills to our rapidly expanding Foundation. The positions of Partnership & Philanthropy Executive and Fundraising & Events Officer are key to our future success, developing our donor base and creating a clear donor stewardship programme for us at all levels.

In addition, you will create engaging fundraising asks, strong engagement processes and effective recruitment campaigns. 

We actively encourage people from structurally disadvantaged backgrounds and underrepresented groups to apply. This includes, but is not limited to, people from communities experiencing racial inequality, migrants, refugees, women, non-binary people, people who identify as LGBTQIA+ and/or people from a working-class background. ​

The successful candidates will demonstrate that they have the passion, experience and skills to own and drive our fundraising activities and contribute to the ongoing development of fundraising within the Leeds United Foundation. You will be able to prioritise a busy workload, with excellent attention to detail. ​

Applications should be made by emailing CV, covering letter detailing your experience in line with the areas of responsibility. Candidates shortlisted will be required to complete a supplementary application form.
