Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice helps babies, children and young people who are seriously unwell, and their families, make the most of every day. The charity aspires to become a centre of clinical excellence for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. We’ve been on a major upward trajectory in recent years, with more children being supported, more major hospitals being partnered with and more supporters donating. We’ve transformed from being an enthusiastic start-up delivering care in the community, to a serious player delivering major impact both in the community and at our state-of-the-art hospice building, The Ark, opened in 2019. Philanthropy & Partnerships, which covers both Major Donor and Corporate fundraising streams, is pivotal to Noah’s Ark – typically accounting for around 50% of the charity’s overall income. This is an area of real expertise for Noah’s Ark, with much scope for further growth. The successful candidate will therefore enjoy opportunities to develop their portfolios and gain invaluable in- house training and support, working as part of a high-performing and super supportive team, ready for its next exciting growth phase. The Philanthropy & Partnerships Manager will line manage a new Philanthropy & Partnerships Fundraiser, and will work closely with the Senior Head of Philanthropy & Partnerships to manage and develop the Major Donor, Mid-Value and Corporate pipelines, along with instrumental work on high-value campaigns and events. This includes our annual matched-funding campaign and The Winter Ball - which last year raised £2.1m and £435,000 respectively. The post-holder will be key in taking the Philanthropy programme to the next level, securing new Corporate Partnerships, increasing multi-year gifts and supporting the new Philanthropy & Partnerships Fundraiser to work to the same end with their portfolios.
You will be a dedicated, organised and reliable individual. You will show determination and have an ability to read people and situations intuitively. An exceptional and eloquent communicator, excellent at managing your time and a natural relationship builder. At this stage in your career, we would not expect you to have high levels of knowledge and experience in both fundraising streams. We encourage you to apply if you consider yourself to have an emphatically successful grounding in Major Donor or Corporate fundraising, and you’re an up-and-coming manager of people, ready to step into management in a nurturing environment

MOVE Europe’s (registered name The Move Partnership) vision is for every disabled young person to have choice and opportunities by learning independent movement. Our mission is to enable disabled young people to gain independent mobility through the use of the MOVE Programme, a 6-step programme used collaboratively in all aspects of an individual’s life, throughout their whole day, by all of the people that work and live with them. The MOVE ethos is centred around a ‘can-do’ approach, where everyone around the individual dares to dream and works on ambitious goals set by the child and their family. Because of this approach, individuals on the MOVE Programme achieve significant positive outcomes, and progress is usually made much quicker than if the person was just accessing traditional therapy services alone.
We work to achieve our mission through delivering the following activities throughout the UK to over 140 schools and therapy teams. Most of our current work is funded by trading income, where teams purchase our services and access support through membership.
- Training: we deliver high-quality training that empowers education and therapy teams to use the MOVE Programme with the disabled individuals they support.
- Support: we provide support services and quality assurance for the teams that use the MOVE Programme to ensure best practice and great outcomes for the disabled individuals they support. This includes network meetings, conferences, the MOVE Quality Mark, 1:1 support, webinars and CPD opportunities.
- Growth: we develop the MOVE Programme across the UK and Europe to reach as many disabled young people as possible who could benefit.
Join us at MOVE Europe in our 25th year of enabling disabled young people to learn independence through movement, as our Senior Trusts and Statutory Fundraiser. Reporting to the Director of MOVE Europe, and joining a small, agile, and highly effective team, the owner of this role will play a pivotal part in the organisation’s growth ambitions.
The main purpose of the role is to develop and lead the organisation’s trust and statutory fundraising, working to grow a portfolio of new funders of various sizes (4 – 5 figures) and, through effective communication and stewardship, secure income for the organisation, as part of our 3-year strategy. As a new role within the team, the post-holder will have a brilliant opportunity to develop and lead our fundraising activity to create real change for the young people we support.
As with the rest of the MOVE Europe team, the post-holder will be employed by Enham Trust, but will be seconded to the MOVE Europe organisation.
What You Will Be Doing
- Have significant autonomy in growing our trust income by prospecting and building relationships with new trusts to increase our portfolio and maximise multi-year funding and growth.
- Identify prospects and develop and manage pipelines for statutory funding from both regional and national grants in England and Wales in the health and education sectors.
- Create tailored, engaging applications with a creative and emotive writing style to small, medium, and large trusts, ensuring that applications match the interests of each funder and support the objectives and operational priorities of MOVE Europe.
- Work with the Director to scope, design and cost fundraising projects, ensuring all projects align with the strategic priorities of the organisation, and develop projects in collaboration with other charities to deliver improved outcomes.
- Develop, manage, and steward our trust portfolio by building and maintaining strong relationships, leading on all actions with trusts, including setting up and attending meetings and project visits.
- Work closely with operational colleagues from the outset to involve them in strategic funding opportunities and to ensure grant reporting requirements are clear at the point of award.
- Maintain awareness of the trust, foundation and statutory fundraising landscape and proactively seek new opportunities that align to our objectives.
- Respond to other fundraising opportunities when they arise (e.g., corporate or major donors).

- Attend and prepare for meetings and write reports for the Trustee board as required.
- Keep abreast of best practice in fundraising and take responsibility for own personal development.

- Work with the Director of MOVE Europe to set and manage budgets and delivery plans for statutory and trust funded projects and unrestricted funding, and establish and monitor KPIs.
- Work with operational colleagues to fully understand the work of MOVE Europe and the detail of specific projects requiring funding, ensuring that high quality trust applications are made.
