Job Details

Trees for Cities is the only charity working on a national and international scale to improve people's lives by planting trees in cities. In a world facing unprecedented threats from climate change, loss of biodiversity and disconnection from nature, our work has never been more urgent or important. With a portfolio of funders giving over £10,000 annually, you will secure and manage income to grow urban forests and combat the effects of climate change. Come get your hands dirty on planting days and join us!


At Trees for Cities we engage local communities to cultivate lasting change in their neighbourhoods with urban trees, whether it’s creating healthier environments, keeping our cities cool, protecting from flooding or getting people involved in nature.

We have been in existence for nearly 30 years, engaging communities to plant, protect and promote urban trees in parks, streets, schools and housing estates across the UK and around the world. Through our work, we deliver local impact on a national and global scale, strengthening urban communities through volunteering opportunities and helping to enable and inspire a new generation to plant and protect urban trees. The charity has seen significant organisational growth and development in recent years, including a new senior leadership team to boost capacity and lead a growing organisation.


The Senior Fundraising Coordinator is responsible for generating income from a portfolio of philanthropic sources (trusts, foundations, individuals and corporates) and statutory bodies to improve lives by planting trees in cities. Together with colleagues in the Fundraising Team, you will effectively manage funders and income for the organisation to deliver our goal of healthy, accessible and resilience urban forests for today and future generations.

With a high number of funding opportunities and a competitive sector for fundraising, you will be skilled at prioritising funders and opportunities. Your passion for the environment and urban communities will bring the energy and enthusiasm to compelling funder communications. Your organisation skills will enable you to manage and deliver grant requirements such as finance tracking and reporting.

We have achieved consistent, significant income growth – and more is needed to address the increasing need for urban trees. We now look forward to our next strategy in 2025 for even more ambitious plans – join us!
