Job description

Senior Philanthropy Manager
Full-time/ Permanent (Flexible hours negotiable)
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 a major donor fundraising programme which builds on the networks of support already established within the charity and overlays these with best practice in terms of fundraising and key relationship management.

You will understand how to match the interests of our donors and potential donors with the funding needs of Variety’s programme and you will help philanthropists to play a vital role in meeting the ambitions of our charity to provide help and support to many more children and young people.

You understand how to manage the contributions of senior colleagues and Trustees in creating opportunities to involve High Net Worth Individuals with our mission and to create the space for them to input meaningfully into our emerging programme of activities.

Working with the Trust and Grants fundraiser, you will scope and lead the delivery of the planned refurbishment programme throughout 2020, delivering capital contributions to the project and liaising effectively with project stakeholders.

If you would enjoy the challenge of building a major donor fundraising programme with an emphasis on long-term donor relationships and face to face contact, this is the role for you.

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