Head of Fundraising/Senior Trusts Specialist (flexible, according to aspiration and experience)
‘IntoUniversity is the most powerful engine for social mobility in the UK’.
IntoUniversity believes that all children deserve access to the same opportunities. Above all, they deserve to feel resilient, confident and capable of succeeding in whatever path they choose. It provides the support that is so often taken for granted.
IntoUniversity is a relatively new, award-winning, national charity which inspires young people from the most disadvantaged backgrounds to attain a university place, opening up a world of new life-possibilities, including professional careers, through its impact driven programmes.
At an exciting time in its evolution we are looking for an experienced and high-calibre professional to take up a newly-created position. According to your aspirations and experience, we are in the unique position of being flexible on the shape and level of this single role (salary £40k to £60k), which can be a Head of Fundraising managing the team of 8 across the three income streams of trusts, major gifts and corporates, or a Head of Trusts and Foundations managing a team of three, or a high-calibre Trusts Manager wishing to be supported in the next stage of your career. We can explore each of these options carefully with you.
Having started as after school homework club in Notting Hill before becoming a national charity, last year IntoUniversity turned over £6m, supporting over 29,000 children through 24 centres nationwide, and 75% of the programme’s school leavers progressed to University, compared with the national averages of only 39% of state educated, and just 22% of children on free school meals.
From its relatively small team, IntoUniversity has formed partnerships on a six and seven figure scale with trusts, philanthropists and companies.
For the next phase of its growth IntoUniversity is scaling up all of its fundraising activity with a campaign, called The Big Leap, in progress to raise £40m by 2020 (over £23 million raised to date).This will enable the charity to expand to 30 centres and reach 200,000 young people over a ten-year period. To achieve its ambitious goals it must maintain and develop its excellent track record in success with Grant Making Trusts (£2m annual income), Major donors (£3m), and Corporates (£750K).
