Job description
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

The Queen’s School, Chester, is an Independent School for girls aged 4-18 in the heart of the city of Chester. At Queen's we educate and empower young women to lead and shape the world they live in. We offer a stimulating education in a rich and varied learning environment, and the results speak for themselves.  We are proud to be a Times Top 100 school for A-level results, and girls make outstanding academic and developmental progress across the board. Queen’s provides a warm, nurturing environment which both inspires and supports girls, offering numerous opportunities that encourage them to embrace challenges in order that they may achieve their absolute best. Our goal for every Queen’s girl is that she leaves us able to think independently, collaborate confidently, and aspire globally.

A new opportunity has opened to join us as our first Fundraising Manager.  Working closely with our Director of External Relations, the Headmistress and the Development Committee, the Fundraising Manager will be responsible for creating, implementing and delivering the fundraising strategy and management of our fundraising approaches, activities and results over the coming years. In particular, the post holder will focus their efforts on fundraising for our bursaries fund and for the creation and implementation of specific capital campaigns, such as our current Astroturf project.

We are looking for candidates who are confident in their ability to operate at this strategic and operational level and who bring experience of working with individual donors to deliver successful income generating activities.  Candidates should have worked in similar roles and be able to demonstrate exceptional skills in all forms of relationship management and communication. The drive and ability to work towards ambitious targets and deadlines is also essential. Comprehensive knowledge of both UK charity and tax law is essential, as it applies to charitable giving and inheritance law, as well as experience in servicing committees comprising senior volunteers.

The job can be carried out on a remote working basis as well as working on site in school. 

If you think you have the talent and experience for this role and are committed to our mission to educate and empower young women, we would love to hear from you.
