If you have experience of fundraising with grants, trusts or corporates, this is an incredible opportunity to take your next step up and join a charity that’s supporting the UK’s most disadvantaged young people.
It’s an exciting time to join our team. We have ambitious plans for growth over the next few years to expand our work and benefit even more young people. Ensuring a solid financial base for the organisation is essential to achieving this goal – and that’s where you come in.
As an education charity, we understand the importance of providing learning and development opportunities for our staff. You’ll receive a comprehensive induction and full training and will have the chance to broaden your areas of responsibility as you grow alongside the organisation.
As the Fundraising Manager, you will develop and implement a fundraising strategy and ensure that our fundraising targets are met.
In this key role, you will establish new relationships with trusts and foundations, develop our corporate case for support, manage relationships with funders and develop plans to increase our income from events and individual donors.
Our strengths include our strong base of faithful long-term funders, demonstrable evidence of impact to strengthen our case for support, a strong reserves position, plus a large group of volunteer tutors to draw upon for links to corporates.
Working closely with the CEO, your other duties will include:
- Stewardship and management of existing funder relationships
- Researching and driving new opportunities
- Preparing and submitting applications to trusts, foundations and corporates
- Reporting regularly to the CEO and Board on fundraising
To join us as a Fundraising Manager, you will need:
- Experience in fundraising with grants, trusts and/or corporates, and a track record of delivering on targets
- Stakeholder management experience and the ability to manage long-term relationships with funders to build strong partnerships
- Strong networking skills, and a proactive and tenacious approach to identify new avenues for income generation
- The ability to speak and write passionately and persuasively about our work
Experience of working in the educational charity environment would be beneficial, as would experience of managing corporate partnerships.
Other organisations may call this role Charity Fundraising Manager, Grants Fundraising Manager, Philanthropy Manager, Corporate Fundraising Manager, Trusts & Corporate Fundraising Manager, Senior Fundraising Executive or Senior Fundraising Officer.
This is a full time role, working 37.5 hours per week. For the right candidate, we can provide this role on a part time basis, working four days per week (30 hours).
The closing date for applications is 9am on 1st October 2019, with interviews scheduled to be held on the 7th October 2019.
