Job description

Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager
Full-time/ Permanent
Salary competitive
Based in Camden Town, London

In the UK there are more than one million disabled children and nearly four million children living in poverty.  Variety, the Children’s Charity, exists to improve the lives of those children. Since our inception in 1949 the Charity has raised over £200 million and supported more than 800,000 children affected by ill health, disadvantage and disability across the UK.  When statutory funding cannot adequately meet a child’s needs, Variety steps in.   Variety has recently appointed a new Head of Fundraising at head office who is looking to recruit two senior members to the team.

You will develop Variety’s Corporate Fundraising strategy ensuring that our largest income stream continues to grow and play a central role in funding our work with children and young people across the UK. You will support and guide the efforts of the Corporate Fundraising Manager, delivering outstanding account management to our existing supporters, while making opportunities to secure new partnerships and converting interest into income for our work. You will work closely with the Head of Fundraising, Chief Executive and Trustees to develop our networks and take full advantage of the potential that these offer.

You will take a strategic approach to matching the needs of Variety with those of our partners and those businesses who would seek to partner with us, ensuring that our highly tangible offer is made in a way which releases sufficient funds to all aspects of our programme work and to our overall operational costs. You will support the development of our regional corporate fundraising efforts, helping to develop new approaches and agreeing the point at which some of these become national accounts under your management.

You will have a clear sense of the potential we have to grow and develop our corporate fundraising and the drive and determination to secure new partnerships. You will cultivate and develop existing relationships to ensure that we are able to celebrate more milestones like the three multi-million pound partnerships we have had in the last 12 months.

If you would enjoy the challenge of doubling our corporate income over the next 3-5 years, securing increased support from our existing portfolio of donors, and winning new partnerships, this is the role for you.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 8th January
Formal interviews to take place week commencing 13th January.
