About the charity/role

This charity has a fantastic culture, numerous credible fundraising propositions and a high level of organisational excellence, and now their well-established fundraising team are looking for an organised, proactive and committed Trust Fundraising Manager (maternity cover).

This is a crucial time to join, as the organisation has invested £1.5 million in their UK fundraising team, helping them to cement their plans of becoming a ‘fundraising first’ organisation, and this role will play a vital part in raising a team target of £1.7 million.

The role reports to the Senior Trust Manager and will work alongside a further Trust Manager and Officer. You can expect to be managing five and six figure donors as well as supporting on seven figure asks.

Job specification

As Trust Fundraising Manager you will:

  • manage a portfolio of funders who give five and six figure gifts (the current target is c.£400,000) and support on asks of seven figures
  • work on established relationships, develop new prospects who have the ability to give five figure and up, and develop multi-year gifts (there is an even split between new business and portfolio management)
  • work closely and strategically with internal and external stakeholders to ensure a ‘fundraising first’ approach.
Person specification

The position would best suit:

  • an experienced fundraiser (you can have experience in other income streams) looking to broaden their experience, able to hit the ground running, OR, a fundraiser looking to take the next step in their fundraising career, hungry for a challenge
  • someone who enjoys integrated working between different teams across an organisation
  • an externally focused relationship builder, motivated by generating new income by engaging new funders and developing excellent proposals whilst working to develop an already robust portfolio of fundraising collateral
  • a proactive and confident team player, able to shift focus from complex relationships and asks to supporting the wider fundraising team, undertaking administrative tasks, completing financial reports and upholding fundraising best practice.

Applications close on Monday 14 October, with interviews taking place at the end of that week and w/c 21 October.
