Corporate and Community Fundraising Officer 
Henfield
£24,969 p.a.

Our client has over 30,000 members who are helping to protect the rich natural heritage of East and West Sussex, and Brighton and Hove.  They exist so that future generations can experience the joy and wellbeing that comes from connecting with nature in Sussex.  

They’re looking for an exceptional Fundraiser to join the team and help develop corporate and community fundraising activities. Based at the headquarters at Woods Mill Nature Reserve near Henfield (10 miles north of Brighton), you will oversee the Trust’s corporate relationships across Sussex (with a focus on Brighton, Horsham and Eastbourne), developing new relationships and generating new ideas for businesses to support an important local charity.

You’ll also coordinate community fundraising activities including a Wilderness Wonder ball, an important headline event for the Trust and their key supporters.

The successful candidate will already have experience in corporate fundraising and will be confident networking and developing relationships with external partners and stakeholders.  With the ability to engage donors, you’ll be familiar with community giving behaviour, event planning and cause related marketing.  

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about our client’s work, who can build strong relationships with supporters and can bring creative and innovative ideas that will increase fundraised income.  An interest in wildlife and nature conservation would also be advantageous. 

If you want to be part of a friendly, fun and creative team then we welcome your application.
