Senior Philanthropy Manager
World’s Leading Gardening Charity
Competitive Salary

Our client has been the force behind gardening for more than 200 years. Best known for its world famous flower shows and gardens, the organisation’s charitable work is diverse and includes connecting millions of children with nature through its Campaign for School Gardening, supporting Britain in Bloom, and conducting pioneering horticultural science research.

Our client believes everyone in every village, town and city should benefit from growing plants to enhance lives, build stronger, healthier, happier communities and create better places to live. Its aim is to enrich everyone’s life through plants and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.  

The organisation has recently launched a major investment programme, which includes a range of exciting new capital and operational projects. As part of this, it is creating a brand-new Garden at Bridgewater in Salford, which will open in summer/autumn 2020.

Our client is looking for a Senior Philanthropy Manager, ideally based as part of a small team at Bridgewater, to lead the fundraising campaign to raise a further £4.5m from a variety of major income streams, in particular from major donors, companies and trusts and foundations, to allow it to create the garden.

Building on a strong existing national network of trusts & foundations, major donors and companies, your role will be to help expand local networks and manage the cultivation and engagement process to secure significant funding from high net worth individuals, companies and other trusts. 

Reporting to the Head of Philanthropy in London, you will be part of a small but growing team based at the new garden. Other options include the option to be based in London with weekly travel to Bridgewater. Some home working may be considered.

This exciting role offers the opportunity to further develop a new fundraising network and you will be a proactive fundraiser who can confidently communicate the organisation’s plans across the North West.
