We're looking for a Development Officer to become part of our fundraising team to help grow our income and develop the work of the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT). As a small charity doing big things to support the people, landscape and wildlife of the Dales we enjoy an excellent reputation as a 'doing' organisation which makes a real difference to people’s lives.
This role will help to develop new funding streams and support the development of projects to meet the changing charitable needs of this special area.
About Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust
Over the last 24 years we have delivered diverse and inspirational projects. Our vital work has helped to plant 1.5 million trees and secure the future of more than 750 hectares of wildflower hay meadows, creating habitats for our wildlife and combatting climate change. We’re passionate about inspiring disadvantaged groups and future generations to care for this special part of the world.
Over the next three years we will aim to sustain and grow our annual voluntary income above £1m. To achieve this, we need to look after our individual supporters, philanthropists, and corporate partners to a very high level, inspiring them to continue to make regular donations and multi-year commitments.
We need to grasp this moment in time, by further raising our great reputation to highlight our ability to help tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and connect more people with our natural and built environment.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about our work and able to build strong relationships with our supporters, including corporate partners, philanthropists and Trust and Foundations. You should be able to demonstrate experience of successful business development and/or fundraising. More important is your ability to work within our culture – which means being creative, caring, honest and enabling.
We believe the role of Development Officer with YDMT will be a highly rewarding one, and a real opportunity for someone to develop their fundraising skills in a fantastic organisation whilst benefiting this wonderful area and its communities.
