Philanthropy Grant Manager

Part time fixed term to 2026


Woking, Surrey GU21 4LL

If you understand the urgent need to restore nature and have successfully managed relationships with large trusts and foundations, this role as Philanthropy Grant Manager with the world’s leading independent conservation organisation is the perfect position for you. Join us and you will help fight for our planet by managing our relationship with the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

As Philanthropy Grant Manager, we want you to lead on engagement activity with this important funder. This will involve overseeing donor communications , providing regular project updates and organising site visits and invitations to philanthropy events. You will also play the central role in driving a ‘delivery phase’ application to the Fund in June 2022. Important will be the ability to work with different teams, including leadership, across the organisation to ensure good stewardship of National Lottery funds. We will look to you to make sure future funding opportunities are taken forward and maximised too.

To play your part in saving our planet, you must have considerable experience of managing relationships with large trusts and foundations. Able to show a track record of securing funding from and working with National Lottery (ideally Heritage Fund), you will excel at delivering income targets too. Effective at identifying and developing new funding opportunities, you will be comfortable building lucrative, long-term relationships. Good at prioritising, you will also possess excellent communication and influencing skills.

If you have the expertise to help fund critical conservation and drive positive environmental change by inspiring people to engage with our mission, we would love to hear from you. Please visit our website via the link, complete the online registration and submit a copy of your up-to-date CV with the Supporting Statement highlighting what makes you a good fit for us.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you. 

Here at WWF, we are committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose.  We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.


Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.

That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.
