The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that unlocks the potential in young people through adventure-based outdoor learning from six centres across the UK.  Nearly three-quarters of all young people who benefit from one of our courses are disadvantaged and receive bursary support towards their course. 

Due to expansion, an opportunity has arisen to join the Trusts and Foundations part of the Fundraising team and help us to grow income from trusts and foundations to £1m per year.  This role will manage a wide range of existing small and medium value trusts as well as securing grants from as yet un-tapped small and medium value trusts.

This role will appeal to you if you enjoy building relationships and being sleuth-like to find new opportunities.  It will appeal if you enjoy thinking and writing creatively.  It will appeal if you enjoy organising your time and work carefully.  And it will appeal if you are motivated to meet a monetary target which contributes directly to the success of Outward Bound in working with more disadvantaged young people than ever before.

The Fundraising team is an exciting team to be part of, with opportunities for you to interact across all areas of the Trust and to be involved in some truly outstanding and memorable occasions, not to mention personally making Outward Bound courses possible for literally hundreds of young people who receive a bursary supported course each year.
