Are you an experienced Trust and Grant Fundraiser who would like to take on a new challenge?

The Jon Egging Trust are seeking an exceptional individual to increase and maintain income from Charitable Trusts and Foundations. Reporting to the Head of Fundraising, you will develop relationships with a broad range of donors and secure new sources of funding for JET’s core work and targeted projects. Your experience of developing compelling fundraising proposals which meet the individual funder’s needs, excellent organisational and planning skills, and commitment to building relationships at all levels will enable you to effectively contribute to the planned expansion of JET.

You will be joining a small but committed team of home workers who are all passionate about improving the lives of children through the youth programme.

The Jon Egging Trust was founded in 2012 in memory of Red Arrows pilot Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging to realise his dream of inspiring young people to achieve a brighter future. Jon tragically lost his life on 20th of August 2011 whilst completing a Red Arrows display at the Bournemouth Air Festival. 

The Trust delivers two key youth programmes; Blue Skies and Inspirational Outreach.

Blue Skies is an accredited programme which creates partnerships and develops teamwork and leadership opportunities with military and civilian organisations linked to aviation, engineering and science to support vulnerable young people aged 12-16 to achieve their full potential. Blue Skies is an intensive programme working with young people for four months a year over three years, and culminates with a work experience placement for each student.

Our Inspirational Outreach programme provides targeted interventions from aged 10, according to the needs identified by schools. Sessions are delivered by Inspirational Mentors supported by JET employees who recruit, train, coordinate and support these volunteers to deliver bespoke support packages to schools.

The Trust currently operates in five regions: Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Dorset/Wiltshire, Norfolk, Oxfordshire and North Wales.
