Senior Philanthropy Specialist - International Trusts, Foundation and Institutional Fundraising
Traidcraft Exchange works for trade and climate justice. In South Asia and East Africa, we support farmers, workers and artisans to benefit from more sustainable and equitable trade, and in the UK we advocate and campaign for changes to business practices and government policy. It is an exciting time to join our organisation. Following a strategic review, we are embarking on a process of change to shift power to groups in the global south, and to rethink the way we work in the UK. We are committed to equality and providing a diverse and inclusive workplace. We particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, including disabled people and individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
As part of our innovative strategy, we are creating a Direct Fundraising team. This new team will have joint accountability to raise funds and build partnerships in the UK and internationally for newly defined portfolios of work, and raise match funding for existing large multi-year development programmes. The team will approach trusts and foundations, institutional donors, high net worth individuals, community groups, companies and social enterprises. Although the post-holder will focus largely on foundations, institutional and trust funding the Senior Philanthropy Specialist will need to be versatile and able to engage with partners and donors at all levels with a willing to fundraise across a wide range of disciplines where the need arises.
