Job description

We are seeking a seasoned fundraising professional with a passion for making a meaningful impact on some of the poorest children in the world. We are on the lookout for an experienced, organised and well-networked individual to join our team and drive our growth by identifying and securing grants from a diverse range of Trusts and Foundations in excess of £120,000 per annum.

We are a team of passionate volunteers in the UK and Tanzania who are dedicated to alleviating the extreme poverty that thousands of children in our partner communities face. In 10 years, our team of volunteers have fundraised over £700,000 (approximately 50% of which has come from Trusts and Foundations) and empowered over 25,000 children through our work. 

The need for our support in Tanzania, whether that’s constructing new classrooms, delivering menstruation programmes or installing clean water, is growing. We have active partnerships with 9 rural government schools with engaged communities and have several projects planned at each school. We need help from the Trusts and Foundations Fundraiser to raise the funds to implement these projects over the next few years alongside our other sources of income.

Specific responsibilities:

  • Managing our existing portfolio consisting primarily of Trusts and Foundations giving between £5k-£50k

  • Write compelling, concise, well-presented, tailored grant applications in Google Docs.

  • Research and develop new trusts, foundations and corporates.

  • Report on progress of current prospects through the fundraising cycle

  • Work with the Founding Director with reporting to Trust and Foundation funders that you’ve had success.

  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date records of all fundraising activity, including proposals, applications, and donor interactions

  • Develop and maintain a thorough understanding of the charity’s activities and programmes to be able to communicate effectively with stakeholders and potential funders

Knowledge, skills & experience required

  • Minimum 3 years’ experience in a grant fundraising role, with a successful track record of regularly securing 4 and 5-figure grants.

  • Excellent attention to detail.

  • Knowledge of funding databases and other sources of potential funders

  • Proven organisational skills with experience in managing multiple tasks and prioritising effectively.

  • Excellent and engaging written communication skills and ability to adapt style to suit a wide range of supporters.

  • Confident interpersonal and verbal communication skills, including diplomacy and negotiating skills.

  • Ability to deal with people at all levels and from a wide range of backgrounds.

  • Flexible, can-do attitude and good team player 

  • Ability to work independently to general guidelines, with the capability to use initiative and seize opportunities.

  • Strong IT literacy and adept in making funding applications online. Training will be provided in Slack/Canva but must be familiar with MS Office and Google Suites

  • Fluency in written and spoken English.

  • Interest in international work that supports children living in extreme poverty.

  • Experience of developing fundraising budgets.
