About the role

This is a new role in the team, adding additional resource and capacity to increase support from trusts and foundations.

You’ll be responsible for a mix of warm prospects (£25k+) and six figure bids while also supporting new business fundraising and testing new approaches to colder prospects.

This will include piloting a regional approach and supporting the expansion of funding and delivery in the devolved nations with support from the Services team and Executive leadership.

Given changes to their services delivery (to now be in the community), there is significant opportunity for the trusts team to increase support and generate new funding opportunities.

Job description

As Trusts and Foundations Manager you will:

  • Test and pilot new approaches, diversifying funding opportunities and engaging with new prospects;
  • Focus predominantly on large, multi year prospects but with responsibility for relationships £25k+;
  • Support the uplift and re-engagement of lower level/lapsed supporters with potential to give significantly more in support of their work;
  • Work closely with services and organisational teams to increase the amount of restricted programme funding available.
Person specification

The role would best suit:

  • An experienced trusts and foundations/statutory fundraiser with demonstrable expertise of securing high 5-figure+ donations;
  • An individual with a creative flair, able to identify new opportunities and think creatively about how to engage with prospects;
  • A proven relationship builder with a collaborative nature and strong written skills to support proposal development;
  • An individual who is self-motivated, able to work collaboratively with the wider team but comfortable with a large degree of home working for the long term.

Interviews will take place on a rolling basis, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for further information.
