Contract Type

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. We provide, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland, and a seasonal lifeguard service. With our lifeboats, lifeguards, safety advice and flood rescue, we are committed to saving lives. An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the RNLI’s Philanthropy Team with the responsibility for inspiring high net worth individuals and senior volunteers to support the work of RNLI. We are a geographically dispersed team with this role looking after the Midlands and North of England. Therefore, we are ideally looking to recruit a candidate based in this area.

Your primary purpose will be to maximise fundraising opportunities from philanthropists in this region in order to contribute to the Philanthropy Team’s growth targets. Working closely with colleagues throughout the RNLI, you will have responsibility for identifying new prospects and senior volunteers, as well as stewarding a portfolio of existing donors.

You will be an excellent networker, capable of building and maintaining strong personal relationships with a wide range of individuals, both externally and internally. You will already have a proven track record in a fundraising or sales environment, and highly advantageous would be a solid understanding of philanthropic giving, engaging with high net worth individuals and experience of ‘making the ask’. Apart from a keen interest in the cause, you will also ideally have an ability to work in isolation as well as part of a geographically dispersed team, and have the drive and tenacity to meet challenging financial and performance targets.

Location of this role is flexible within the Midlands or North England, but you will be required to travel extensively within the region to meet key stakeholders, and occasionally to Poole Support Centre for meetings. A willingness to travel (with some overnight stays and occasional evening/weekend work) is therefore essential, as is a full driving license. A vehicle will be made available to carry out your duties.

Closing date: 28 July 2019.

Interview date: 8 August 2019.
