Job description

This is an exciting new role which sits within the Senior Leadership team at The Kids Network. The Head of Income Generation will lead the strategy and fundraising activity required to help our small but mighty organisation double our income over the next year.

You will lead our new fundraising team including our existing sole fundraiser, Senior Development Manager and a new Fundraising Manager, with potential to grow the team further during 2022.

The role will be responsible for advancing our fundraising KPIs across all income streams - doubling and diversifying our income and leading the rest of the team to meet our ambitious targets.  This role will require strategic thinking, financial planning and management, but also will require getting stuck in when required to achieve these goals.

Senior Leadership responsibilities

  • Create a 3-5 year fundraising & financial strategy to underpin the organisational strategy
  • Attend Senior Leadership Team (SLT) meetings and contribute to strategy discussions
  • Provide strategic reports and KPI updates for trustee meetings and attend sub-committees as required
  • Be an ambassador for The Kids Network, ensuring a strong external network of supporters are aware of our work
  • Work to ensure The Kids Network is meeting all legal obligations of fundraising
  • Be a budget holder providing reports to SLT and the board’s Funding and finance committee, and monitoring team expenditure and income.


Team Management Responsibilities

  • Lead a team of two fundraisers initially (Senior Development Manager and Fundraising Manager), growing to 4 by the end of the year (Partnerships Manager and Fundraising Officer),
  • Line managing three fundraisers over the course of the year,
  • Ensure the team feel supported, developed, celebrated and valued
  • Ensure the team are meeting their activity targets and are aligned to the organisation’s strategy
  • Promote and lead a culture of fundraising across the organisation, influencing other team members not within your direct reports


Income Generation

  • Work to meet ambitious targets across a multitude of stakeholders to achieve our KPIs, meeting Individual and team targets
  • Identify, research and cultivate prospective major donors, corporates and trust relationships to build a strong pipeline of high value prospects that will have a significant positive impact on income over the current and future financial years
  • Design and organise a series of high quality events, including a high value flagship event, throughout the year, to act as cultivation and fundraising forums for high value and high profile supporters
  • Create compelling, relevant and tailored funding proposals and reports for high value supporters, trusts and foundations and corporates
  • Work with the Senior Development Manager to trial new innovative income streams for The Kids Network, including statutory funding and the exploration crypto currency giving
  • Provide oversight for the written content of the team, ensuring the work is of excellent quality and reflective of The Kids Network’s values


About you

You will have developed your portfolio of fundraising skills over time in a charity and can demonstrate considerable success and networks in more than one of the following areas: Trusts and Foundations, Corporate Partnerships, Major Donor fundraising and Individual Giving.

You will offer at least two years of line-management experience in more than one area of fundraising, with a track record of developing and strengthening individuals and teams.


Personal Specification

  • A strategic thinker who is able to hold on to the big picture whilst designing and delivering activity plans
  • Good knowledge of best practice and legal responsibilities in charity fundraising
  • A strong communicator and credible leader, able to establish Internal and external strategic relationships at senior levels
  • Financially literate and hold a strong understanding of charity financial reporting systems
  • 2 years’ experience managing multidisciplinary fundraising teams
  • Ability to self-motivate, prioritise work and work methodically with competing demands
  • Ability to identify existing constraints with processes and problem solve to offer alternatives
  • Experience of managing and developing a CRM (ideally Salesforce) database to aid in the fundraising process.
