Job description

About this role: Trusts and foundations is a key area of growth for Autistica. In 2019/20 the trusts and foundations team brought in £600k, the most ever raised from this income stream at Autistica. This role is a fantastic opportunity for a high-performing, relationship-driven and strategic trusts and foundations expert to lead a growing income area.

About Autistica: Autistica is the UK’s autism research charity. Our mission is to create the breakthroughs which will enable our community to live happier, healthier, longer lives. In the past five years, Autistica has:

  • Invested £3.5 million in autism research, funding 37 studies spanning mental health, language & communication, early intervention, adult diagnosis and epilepsy.
  • Set up the UK’s first autism research network, recruiting 16,000 network members to help us and our partners do bigger and better research.
  • Secured autism and learning disability as a top priority in the new NHS Long-Term Plan, and a government commitment to develop a national autism research strategy.

Main responsibilities:

Income generation and project development

  • Research potential new trusts and foundations to develop a strong pipeline of multi-year, strategic asks and partnerships.
  • Work collaboratively with colleagues in corporate and major donor teams to identify new opportunities to raise funds.
  • Work with the Director of Fundraising to leverage new trusts and foundations connections and opportunities through Autistica’s Board of Trustees.
  • Lead on developing template cases for support for each project area, ensuring they are always up-to-date and impactful.
  • Create compelling, detailed and highly tailored applications for new project ideas, working closely with the Chief Executive, Head of Research, Head of Policy and others to produce proposals, budgets and project plans.

Strategy and team leadership

  • Lead the planning and delivery of the trusts and foundations fundraising strategy, to grow income in this area and meet the team’s annual target.
  • Line manage the Trusts and Foundations Officer, supporting them to achieve team goals and develop their skills and knowledge.
  • Lead on monitoring and maintaining systems to track project-by-project income, monitor project spend and log unfunded project ideas.
  • Ensure financial reporting is maintained and accurate, including annual income and expenditure budgeting, donor pipelines, monthly forecasting and weekly income tracking.
  • Represent trusts and foundations across the organisation, including attending relevant “Heads of” meetings, reporting income in the weekly chaser meetings and keeping the Director of Fundraising abreast of activity.


  • Work closely with the Science team to support the stewardship and management of restricted grants secured towards research projects.
  • Manage and develop key donor relationships, working with the Chief Executive and Director of Fundraising to develop and strengthen relationships at Trustee and operational levels.
  • Ensure that donors receive regular and timely progress reports and appropriate recognition of their gifts.


  • Using the Raiser’s Edge database system, ensure that up-to-date and GDPR-compliant records are kept for all donor contacts.
  • Ensure that all fundraising activities undertaken are legal, ethical and based on good practice guidelines such as those from the Fundraising Regulator and conducted in a way compatible with Autistica’s policies and professional reputation.

Essential requirements:

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent.
  • Demonstrable experience of regularly securing six-figure grants, and a track record of meeting targets and deadlines.
  • Experience of producing timely, high-quality reports and delivering exceptional stewardship of trust donors.
  • Ability to assess, comprehend and manage complex written and financial information quickly and accurately.
  • Highly developed written communication skills that result in the production of clear and persuasive proposals and reports.
  • Ability to develop and maintain strong working relationships with donors and operate at a senior level.
  • Proven ability to form positive and productive relationships with internal stakeholders.
  • Good analytical and problem-solving skills, demonstrating the ability to understand and communicate complex research and policy issues.
  • An understanding and appreciation of the legislation affecting charity fundraising.

Desirable requirements:

  • A background in research or science or experience of fundraising for a research charity or academic institution.
  • Experience in statutory fundraising.
  • Experience in project design and proposal development.

How to apply: Please apply online with your CV and a one-page cover letter by Thursday 7 January. Interviews will be held w/c 11 January.
