- Take responsibility for new/existing trusts and foundation relationships for the organisation;
- Have personal responsibility for managing a grant income target of £200,000+ per annum;
- Identify and approach a pipeline of new potential funders for the organisation, focused on developing compelling applications and proposals;
- Work closely with the senior leadership team to identify further income generation opportunities eg Patrons Circle, sponsorship etc.
The role would best suit:
- An experienced trusts and foundation fundraiser with a proactive approach to pipeline development and income generation;
- An individual with the confidence to network and meet new people/funders in order to develop partnership proposals;
- A creative fundraiser who is comfortable working as part of a small organisational team
