This high profile foundation seeks to invest in, or partner with, organisations with proven impact, using its profile and leverage to create a multiplier effect in resources, outcomes and knowledge and creates new initiatives with charities, social enterprises and others to find and develop new solutions. The Foundation is both fundraising and grant making and has main theme lines - mental health, veterans, young people and conservation. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced major donor fundraiser to gain experience with the Foundation for a year to cover the maternity leave of the current friendly and very able Senior Development Manager. The maternity cover is available from November and we would be looking for someone to start around that time.

This role is perfect for a self-motivated, responsive and well organised individual who thrives on managing donor relationships and interpreting major donor motivations innovatively in the context of changing and expanding funding priorities. This is an exciting and inspiring opportunity to work as part of a growing, rapidly evolving and dynamic team as the Foundation enters a new phase in its development.The role involves working with a number of very high profile individuals; discretion and professionalism are paramount in addition to a strategic approach to fundraising.  

The team are collaborative, responsive and energetic, and there is a friendly and very positive culture.
