About the role
In the past 12 months this team’s structure has changed to reintegrate international funding opportunities and better utilise resources.
This is a new position in the team, focusing on 6/7+ figure statutory, bi-lateral and multi-lateral funding opportunities on a global basis. While this will form the core focus of the role you will also support with applications to international trusts and foundations as necessary.
The team benefits from a grants manager who supports to ensure funder requirements are met, allowing the fundraising managers to remain externally focused and securing new opportunities.
There are huge opportunities for the organisation internationally – particularly in the EU, US and with development banks as there is increased focus on directing finance to environmental/climate-related issues.
While the team supports unrestricted core funding the largest focus of this position will be on conservation programmes in the UK and overseas (c.80-90% of time will be focused on in situ conservation) – as such a passion for conservation/environmental issues areas is necessary.
As Institutional Fundraising Manager you will:
- Focus on new 6/7+ figure funding opportunities internationally with statutory bi-lateral and multi-lateral agencies (including USFWS, EU, GEF etc)
- Manage a small portfolio of international trusts and foundations, with responsibility for prospect research for all international grant-making opportunities;
- Work closely with the wider team to implement the institutional fundraising team strategy;
- Work closely with in country teams and specialist teams in the UK who provide the operational, strategic and technical support required for funding applications.
The role would best suit:
- An experienced institutional/statutory fundraiser with expertise of technical bid writing and familiar with log frames/theory of change etc.
- An individual with a strong understanding of programme development principles who can help further the goals of the organisation by securing new funding in support of conservation projects;
- Someone with strong knowledge/expertise of EU/US funding markets and experience of working with large funding partners;
- A collaborative individual, able to work with UK and in country teams, managing multiple stakeholders for bid development processes and sensitive to cultural differences around the globe.
Interviews will take place on a rolling basis and the application process is CV and cover letter, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for further details.
