The NSPCC is keen to build its major donor fundraising in Yorkshire and so a rare opportunity has arisen to join a dynamic team of high value donor fundraisers, responsible for raising the millions of pounds needed to continue the NSPCC’s fight for every childhood.

The Philanthropy team is part of the NSPCC’s Major Donors department. We focus upon high level, individual donors and are responsible for securing major gifts ranging from four to seven figures. Our success is founded upon our focus on building high quality and enduring relationships between the NSPCC and those with the capacity to make transformational gifts.

The Philanthropy team has an annual income target of £3.6m per annum within the Major Donors department’s target of c£9m; and we aim to increase this over the coming years.

An ideal position for an energetic deal-maker, you will be responsible for some existing relationships in the region but your focus will be on generating new prospects, building lasting relationships and making asks for substantial financial gifts. This post involves close collaboration with a broad range of internal NSPCC colleagues and external stakeholders.

You will…

• have great people skills and have the personal stature to be able to operate effectively within our audience stream. 
• be an excellent relationships manager, highly proactive, self-motivated and organised. 
• be comfortable with targets and able to deal with competing priorities.
• enjoy working collaboratively with other colleagues, teams and departments. 
• have first class written skills, able to tell our story in a compelling way
• have the ability and willingness to travel independently throughout the region.

Above all, you will relish getting out, meeting your prospects and making the ask.

Experience of working with high value donors (particularly individuals) or clients, and proven success in generating new business and achieving financial targets are highly desirable.

Interviews will be held in Leeds on either 3rd or 4th December.  

This type of role rarely becomes available outside London, so this is a great opportunity for the right candidate, for whom we will consider flexible working arrangements. For an informal discussion about the role please contact Phil Robertshaw on 07879 113522 or at

NSPCC (the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) is a large national charity which campaigns to end child abuse and provides a range of services to children, young people and families throughout Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. NSPCC has 1,830 employees, 11,000 volunteers and an annual income of £134 million. Founded in 1884, NSPCC is governed by Royal Charter, first granted by Queen Victoria in 1895.

NSPCC specialises in child protection. It is the only UK children’s charity with statutory powers to intervene on behalf of children, powers which have existed for more than a century. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, only local authorities and the NSPCC can apply to a court for a care, supervision, or child assessment order.

NSPCC provides 24/7 helplines for both adults and children. The NSPCC helpline supports thousands of parents, professionals and families. Adults can contact by phone or online in order to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if necessary. The helpline is staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in areas such as teaching, health and social work. Professionals such as teachers and doctors are also encouraged to contact the helpline for information and guidance. NSPCC says the number of calls and online contacts to the helpline is increasing year by year.

ChildLine, NSPCC’s free 24/7 counselling service for children, marks its 30th anniversary during 2016. Trained ChildLine counsellors talk to children, helping them with any problems they're facing. In 2014-15, there were nearly 300,000 counselling sessions carried out between young people and ChildLine. The most common issues were family relationships, low self-esteem and unhappiness, abuse, bullying and online bullying and self-harm.

NSPCC also has over 40 service centres across the UK and the Channel Islands. At these centres, the charity works directly with children and families on a range of issues, such as protecting children from sexual abuse, drugs and alcohol misuse and neglect.

The charity also visits 9-11 year olds in schools across the country through the NSPCC Schools Service, helping them to understand what abuse is and giving them the confidence to speak out and seek help if they ever need it.

In addition to its London headquarters, NSPCC has regional offices in Luton (East of England region), Gillingham (London & South East region), Leeds (Northern region), Birmingham (West Midlands region), Plymouth (South West region), St Helier (Jersey), Belfast (Northern Ireland) and Glasgow (Scotland).
