Job Details

If you feel you'd like to spread your wings in your next position and make real impact...please do get in touch!

Are you a bold, creative charity trusts fundraiser...completely compelled and excited by all the opportunities which trust fundraising offers in 2021 to seriously grow income to make an impact for your charity?.....

If you love the huge variety of potential in the trusts tool box, the opportunity to develop a strategy, get excited by data and are as detailed oriented and organised as you are opportunistic, would enjoy the opportunity to present to Board the future strategy for this a master juggler and senior fundraiser, you'll love this role.

We are looking for a Trusts and Foundations Manager who has well seasoned expertise in all things trusts, has significant acquisition as well as stewardship experience, and is able to see the big picture and spot opportunities to maximise our asks amongst a wide portfolio.  You'll have room to try new things, to build on some already excellent work, and to be listened to when something isn't working. As we are not a huge team, we'd love it if you are also happy to roll your sleeves up, and enjoy collaborating across an organisation too. 

Our trusts programme is a cornerstone of our charitable income; we've some great successes in small, medium and large trusts. What we don't have is someone to bring it all together and show us how we can be doing more, better, and be a master juggler at both the large trusts and small givers, and hugely organised...our fount of knowledge in all things trusts and foundations.

Whilst we sound like a pure 'arts' charity, we actually are a youth brand and all about social impact for young people.

You really don't need to be musical for this role, but rather have a passion for helping all young people to fulfil their potential. Not all of us know one end of a musical instrument from the other, by any means, and whilst we deliver excellence in music, NYO is all about accessibility, and our aim is to bring music and its many benefits to all young people. 

There is absolutely no doubt that in 2021 music has a more crucial role to play than ever in providing opportunities for teenagers to explore their full potential, learn to collaborate, understand others' points of view, to lead and to impact on everyone’s future. 

You will join a team of six Development staff with plans in place to grow to 12 by 2023. You will report to and work closely with the Development Director and it is likely there may be subsequent opportunities for line management. 

NYO has a lively and forward thinking culture. If you are willing to work hard, come up with new ideas, bring a growth mindset to the team, we can’t wait to hear from you, and we very much look forward to welcoming you into the team.

If you’d like to find out more and for further details and a job pack, please don't hesitate to contact us for an informal chat via Charlotte Wilmot, Director, Eardley Wilmot, We've got so much to share with you...

The deadline for this position is rolling, and we are reviewing applications as we receive them.

We welcome applications from anyone regardless of their age, experience, disability, ethnicity, heritage, sexuality, gender and socio-economic background.

The National Youth Orchestra is deeply committed to inclusive working practices, and to making any reasonable adjustments.

We have fabulous offices in Lincoln's Inn and are working between home and the office. It's great to come together, and we also appreciate quiet time at home to get our heads down.
