This is an ideal opportunity to join one of London’s hidden treasures. Covering over 1.5 acres in a central London location, Vauxhall City Farm is home to over 60 animals and for 42 years has given Londoners the opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the countryside along with riding for the disabled, education and training for the local community and beyond.
The Fundraising Officer will report to the CEO and work closely with the Deputy CEO, Marketing Officer and the programme managers to apply for revenue and capital funds. The post holder will build relationships with potential and existing funders to generate income for Vauxhall City Farm’s impactful educational, recreational and therapeutic programmes. The post holder will have exceptional administrative and IT skills with experience of managing a database of funders.
Our ideal candidate will be a self-starter, highly motivated and have 2 years experience of seeking funding from trusts, statutory bodies and companies.
Farm or agriculture experience is not required, although experience in visitor attractions would be desirable.
This opportunity is offered as 2 year contract (subject to possible extension).
