TPP Recruitment's specialist Fundraising team are supporting a fantastic national conservation charity with the search for a Trusts and Major Gifts Fundraising Manager. This is a fixed term contract (of initially 7 months) to provide maternity cover. The charity is based in South West London - in line with current restrictions the role is remotely based at present - over the course of the contract a degree of office working is expected, but for exceptional candidates our client will consider applications from home-based candidates within the UK.
Specific duties include:
- Management of fundraising from trusts and foundations by identifying opportunities, developing robust propositions in line with strategic objectives and working closely with conservation colleagues, preparing and submitting applications and managing administration and reporting requirements for successful projects (around 40% of your time)
- Working to grow larger gifts from individuals, including the maintenance of an occasional (currently online) events programme for supporters to meet conservation project leaders and to implement a programme of support thereafter (around 40% of your time)
- Oversight of fundraising from legacies by promoting this opportunity to support the charity to existing supporters and more widely, administering legacies left to the charity and liaising with co-beneficiaries and executors ensuring that funds pledged are received (around 20% of your time)
This post will particularly suit someone who enjoys variety and can rise to the challenge of developing larger gift programme experimenting with approaches and events that bring conservationists and appropriate potential larger gift donors together. Experience in either trusts or major donor fundraising is highly desirable as an understanding of high value fundraising will be important to succeeding in this role.
