We are working in partnership with a well-known health charity which is seeking a self-motivated, target driven Trust Fundraising Officer who will join the dynamic fundraising team and play an important role in developing this income stream.  Grants from charitable trusts and foundations are a key source of vital funds for the Charity.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be responsible for identifying trusts and foundations with potential to support the work of the charity
  • Build relationships and set up compelling cases for support for an agreed range of projects
  • Manage and maintain accurate records of trusts and applications on the CRM system
  • Produce follow-up reports for funders
  • Coach and support the Trust Fundraising Administrator
  • Deputise for the Trust Fundraising Manager, as required

The Trust Fundraising team has ambitious growth targets, therefore individuals with natural verbal and written communication skills should apply and you will be able to turn complex information into persuasive copy.

The ideal candidate will be well organised, have strong attention to detail, and be able to forge effective working relationships with colleagues and funders.  There is occasional travel involved with this role.

Our client is looking to interview week commencing 14 August so please apply without delay.
