Senior Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager
The Prince’s Teaching Institute supports state school teachers by providing high quality specialist subject training opportunities for professional development that is not available elsewhere. The Institute aims to re-inspire state secondary school teachers to give their best and to encourage them to inspire their pupils in turn.
In an environment of funding cuts for schools and an increasing number of high quality people leaving teaching, PTI provides teachers a proven means of re-igniting their passion for teaching that is not dependent on government funding.
Working in partnership with the University of Cambridge, specialist subject events are run for English, History, Geography, Science, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Language, Latin, Art and Music.
Every year over 2,000 teachers attend events, and through them over 500,000 students are reached. More than 10% of state secondary schools are part of the PTI Schools Programme. The charity was established in 2007 by The Prince of Wales, and in this time has reached over a million children. Its ambition is to reach a further million children over the next 5 years.
The Senior Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager reports to the CEO (title Co-Director) and is responsible for the charity’s overall fundraising activities. You will work closely with a very proactive Chair and the Development Committee, and line manage the Development Co-Ordinator, allowing maximisation of face to face time with donors.
The majority of funds come currently from philanthropists passionate about the cause, many of whom make multi-year commitments. There are also Trust and Foundation supporters and a small number of companies. PTI is looking to expand its donor base in all three areas and would welcome someone ambitious to explore new opportunities for the charity and ensure the continuing quality of existing donor relationships.
The ideal candidate will combine creativity with the resilience and persistence to follow up new leads and established donors. It will require day to day contact with a wide spectrum of people, including some very senior and well-known individuals.
