Job description

Small international development charity is seeking a fantastic Head of Fundraising …

Are you an enthusiastic fundraiser with great writing and communication skills, and trusts & foundations experience? We are looking for a dynamic Head of Fundraising to lead our fundraising programme, raising money to run exciting grassroots projects that make a difference for Tibetan communities.

You’ll be a relationship builder who cares about our supporters, and unafraid of a hands-on role in a small team where you will have the opportunity to try new ideas and make the role your own. 

Trust fundraising is a vital part of the role, as well as producing appeals and managing relationships with individual donors and corporate partners. You’ll need to be confident in working with numbers and data, writing for digital platforms, and translating project information into engaging, supporter-friendly copy. 

You will also manage a team of three people and work closely with the CEO to progress major donor relationships and plan budgets. This is a fantastic role for an adaptable fundraiser who can turn their hand to most tasks and is looking to step up into a Head of Fundraising position.

Full time (35 hours/week). We can offer flexible working. The role is hybrid and would be a mixture of working from home and in our office in Camden (at least once a week). 

To apply

Please apply via CharityJob, sending your CV along with a covering letter that demonstrates why you want to be our Head of Fundraising. N.B. applications without a cover letter will not be considered.

Closing date for applicants is 9:00am Monday 20 June. A first round of interviews will be conducted via Zoom or Google Meet on 22 and 24 June. In-person interviews will take place on Monday 27 June.
