Fundraising Manager 
The Dock, Wapping Lane, London 

The Organisation  

Our client is an education charity that supports pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed in school.  

In the UK today, young people facing socio-economic disadvantage are less likely to achieve the grades they need to progress in life. This isn’t because they are any less able – it’s because they have less access to tools to support them to realise their potential.   

Our client helps to level the playing field by working in partnership with schools to deliver weekly tutoring in English or Maths, to pupils who need it the most.   

Due to ongoing growth, they are now looking for a Fundraising Manager to join them in London and ensure a strong pipeline for their future.  

The Benefits  

- Salary of £32,000 - £35,000 per annum  
- Flexible working   
- Workplace pension   
- 25 days’ holiday plus Bank Holidays  
- Team socials  
- Recognition schemes to celebrate staff who go above and beyond   

If you have experience of fundraising with grants, trusts or corporates, this is an incredible opportunity to take your next step up and join a charity that’s supporting the UK’s most disadvantaged young people.   

It’s an exciting time to join our client’s team. They have ambitious plans for growth over the next few years to expand their work and benefit even more young people. Ensuring a solid financial base for the organisation is essential to achieving this goal – and that’s where you come in.  

As an education charity, our client understands the importance of providing learning and development opportunities for their staff.

Our client’s strengths include their strong base of faithful long-term funders, demonstrable evidence of impact to strengthen their case for support, a strong reserves position, plus a large group of volunteer tutors to draw upon for links to corporates. 

Working closely with the CEO, your other duties will include:  

- Stewardship and management of existing funder relationships 
- Researching and driving new opportunities 
- Preparing and submitting applications to trusts, foundations and corporates 
- Reporting regularly to the CEO and Board on fundraising

- Strong networking skills, and a proactive and tenacious approach to identify new avenues for income generation  
- The ability to speak and write passionately and persuasively about our client’s work
