Opportunity to head up a fast-growing philanthropy function in a top UK charity brand.
The TPP Fundraising and Development team are delighted to be supporting this top charity with the search for a Head of Philanthropy. This is a relatively new team, but results since its inception 3 years ago have been incredibly positive. In the role you will manage a small team of staff (3 people - a Trusts Manager, a Major Gifts Manager, and a Prospect Researcher), and join on an interim basis (a 12 month fixed term contract) while the organisation's new fundraising strategy is finalised.
Specifically you will:
* Lead on delivering an ambitious five-year Philanthropy fundraising strategy, growing income from the Trusts and Foundations and Major Donor income streams, and contributing to the High Value Giving team's annual budget.
* Effectively lead, inspire, manage and develop the Philanthropy team, ensuring each team member is enabled to make an effective contribution.
* Effectively manage and coordinate strategic philanthropic relationships between major Trusts and Foundations and Major Donors, and the Director General, Trustees, Directors, and senior volunteers in order to generate significant longer-term results.
* Continually drive efficiency, quality and innovation through the development and use of best practice planning, process and tools.
To be considered for this role, you will bring significant experience of working with high net worth individuals and a proven track record of soliciting six and seven figure gifts. You will have prior experience in leading and motivating teams, and strong strategic planning skills, able to develop and deliver long terms plans to create and maximise opportunities.
