Corporate Fundraising Manager

£35k to £40k


We are delighted to be working in partnership with Seafarers UK; a charity that has been helping people in the maritime community for 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families.

The role of Corporate Fundraising Manager is newly created and will require the post holder to be out and about, networking, setting up meetings, attending events and giving presentations as much as possible. It’s a role for someone who is happy lifting the phone to get hold of people, joining in conversations at networking events and not being afraid to ‘make the ask’.

It’s not a role for someone who likes to be desk-based and relies on email as their preferred communication channel. Working in corporate fundraising for Seafarers UK will require someone who is self-motivated, flexible, a team player and able to adapt to changing priorities, opportunities and challenges.

Ideally candidates will be able to demonstrate three years’ experience, either in corporate fundraising, or within the maritime sector in a commercial or business development role but with transferable skills.

You will be a strong account manager, with a track record in securing commercial backing or sponsorship for projects, campaigns or events and be able to put together and deliver presentations to senior level contacts.

You’ll need to enjoy team working and have strong communication skills, along with the ability to build relationships with companies and senior management over the phone and in person.

This is a key role for the charity, as it embarks on an ambitious and more focused corporate fundraising strategy following on from the increased profile the organisation has gained during its Centenary Year. If you would like to be part of this exciting new phase in their development, then we would love to hear from you.

Please apply with your CV in Word format to Charisma Recruitment: quoting our reference JO1402.

Closing date for applications: 31 August 2017

Interview date: TBC
