In the UK, currently, there are around 950,000 young people aged 16-24 who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs). Over the past year, we have worked with 68,000 young people across the UK. We are in the middle of an ambitious five-year strategy to increase our reach over the next decade to an average of 100,000 young people a year.
Our growth requires a new funding model for the charity, which delivers additional annual income and creates greater income stability and sustainability. The charity’s growth has been driven by our expertise in relationship fundraising. Now, we are diversifying into engaging and raising money from individuals. We have a head-start in the powerful Prince’s Trust Community which surrounds the organization – the employees of our corporate supporters, our volunteers, our communities of supporters and the young people who have been helped and their families.
The Prince’s Trust needs a visionary, entrepreneurial and courageous leader to deliver sustainable income streams from individual supporters (£12m) which will transform the income mix of the organization over the next decade. The Director of Individual Supporters will lead the development of this income stream, reviewing and developing our portfolio of fundraising and engagement events, delivering existing fundraising products and building a strategy for new products and income streams aimed at individuals.
In return, you will get a chance to see the impact of your work every week. You will work with exceptionally skilled and motivated people. You will have the mandate to make a real difference to the lives of thousands of young people. We believe this will be the best work of your life.
We now need a leader who can take these assets and develop and deliver a plan to expand our community of supporters, develop products which appeal to them and which build their increasing engagement with the cause over time, so we are looking for an individual who is restless for change and who can lead the whole organization in their part in building relationships with supporters. As our Director of Individual Supporters, you will have demonstrable experience in a senior fundraising or consumer marketing position, as well as, a track record of significant budgetary responsibility (£10m+ income and £2m+ cost). As this is a key role where you will be developing and delivering long term strategy, you must have experience in this. You will also have previously managed large remote and geographically dispersed teams.
The closing date for this role is the 4th February 2020.
