About the role

Philanthropy is a key growth area for the charity and has been a source of investment recently. This team will focus on securing new relationships and developing them into committed supporters of their work.

They’re at an exciting stage of development with regards to the growth plan of the team and have recently moved to a “work anywhere” policy as an organisation.

The team experienced significant success during their recent emergency appeal, including a six-figure donation from a new supporter. These relationships now require further cultivation and stewardship to convert them into long-term supporters.

  • Manage a small but key portfolio of HNWIs, producing development plans to effectively manage their relationships.

  • A confident and dedicated relationship manager, ensuring excellent stewardship and long term commitment from existing supporters in line with growth plans for this income stream;
