Senior Trust Fundraising Manager
Twickenham, London (Hybrid, 1 day per week expected in the office)
37.5 hours per week, Mon - Fri
£40,000 - £45,000 per annum
At SPEAR, we dedicate ourselves to helping those in South West London, across 5 boroughs, who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, find secure accommodation and support people to achieve a positive future.
For over 35 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to support people experiencing homelessness to overcome personal challenges and break down the many barriers they face. We recognise that homelessness is much more than just a housing issue, so as well as providing accommodation we also provide tailored support services to help people reach their full potential.
We welcome and encourage applications from everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation.
About the Role
We are seeking a highly motivated and experienced Senior Trust Fundraising Manager to join our team. This is an exciting time to join SPEAR, with income from Trusts and Foundations growing year on year, and plans to develop and grow further over the coming years. If growth plans are achieved there is potential to expand the team in 2024 with an additional Trust fundraiser, who would report to this role.
The role will include working with a pipeline of existing and prospective funders, cultivating and developing these relationships, to secure grants and donations. You will identify new opportunities and work with colleagues across the organization to develop compelling proposals in line with the charity's funding needs.
For a more detailed description of the role, please see the attached job description and person specification.
You will be a creative, strategic thinker with a growth mindset, strong collaboration and communication skills, and a passion for addressing homelessness and poverty. You will play a critical role in securing funds from Trusts, Foundations and Grant-making bodies, including the National Lottery Community Fund. This role will suit someone with a strong track record in writing successful bids, managing relationships with funders and developing strong cases for support.
You will need to be able to work with a high level of autonomy and to work collaboratively across the organisation, including at Senior Level, in order to raise vital funds to support SPEAR’s projects and services. We need a committed and dedicated fundraiser who can lead the Trust programme at SPEAR.
If you have a passion for making a difference in people’s lives, in a complex and changing world, this role could be for you.

Need to know you’ll be financially secure whether you’re sick, having a child, or simply in the future? We’ve got that covered with sick pay, parental leave, and a great pension scheme.
We’ll also ensure your mental well-being can be your number one priority through access to a confidential counselling service, so you can go home every day, knowing your hard work is helping some of those most marginalised in society move from homelessness to independence.
