They have ambitious plans over the next three years, hoping to raise £100m across all income streams. A year and a half into their fundraising journey, they are doing well, but now they are looking for a dynamic Philanthropy Manager to play a part in achieving their goal.

  • continuing face to face and relational development of a portfolio of around 100 individuals, securing continued mid and low level giving (anything above £10k) and bringing on high level support (five and six figure gifts with the possibility of quickly progressing to seven figure projects)
  • reacting quickly to internal stakeholders’ needs by developing bespoke fundraising collateral for standalone projects, as well as using the current portfolio of collateral for capital projects
  • working closely with internal and external stakeholders including senior volunteers and the Capital Appeal Board, leading on seamless site visits and engagement events.
Person specification

The position would best suit:

  • an ambitious, creative fundraiser, looking to take the next step in their career
  • an externally focused relationship builder, motivated by generating new income by engaging new funders and developing excellent proposals, at the same time as stewarding, managing and developing funding relationships (50:50 split between new business and portfolio management)
  • a proactive and confident team player, looking to work in a flat structured, fast paced, high profile charity that is undergoing an exciting time of change.
