About the role and our team:

Fantastic relationship management is fundamental to Parkinson’s UK delivering the impact we want to see for people affected by Parkinson's. As our next Philanthropy Manager, you would focus on raising £10k-£100k+ gifts. You will become part of a collaborative, supportive and positive team and have the opportunity to grow in the role so that we can help you to achieve what you want next in your career. We champion regular learning to develop our skills as face-to-face relationship fundraisers and you will be supported by your line-manager and peers to feel confident with external activity and to try out new ideas. 

It is a really exciting time to join as we enter the private phase of Parkinson’s UK’s £12m Nurse Appeal, and grow our philanthropic income for our research and the Parkinson’s Virtual Biotech, our international drug discovery programmes. 

What you’ll do

  • Identify, cultivate and manage relationships with a pipeline of donors and prospects 

  • Secure and deliver a high volume of donor/prospect in-person touchpoints, involving Parkinson’s UK senior leadership in key relationships 

  • Deliver first-class stewardship by maximising engagement opportunities within our stewardship programme

  • Manage the day-to-day activity of our fundraising board and secure new gifts through their networks

  • Work with our Nurse Appeal senior volunteer donors to build your pipeline

What you’ll bring

  • Demonstrable experience of successful major donor fundraising

  • A strong track record of building successful relationships with major donors through one-to-one meetings, phone calls, communications, events and bespoke cultivation 

  • Excellent verbal presentation and persuasive writing skills 

  • The confidence to influence, negotiate and inspire stakeholders at all levels both internally and externally 

  • Ability to proactively identify, qualify and generate new prospects 

Please apply through our careers portal on our website via the Apply button, with your CV alongside a supporting statement outlining how you meet the ‘What you’ll bring’ criteria of the job description.  

Whilst this is advertised as a full-time position, we are committed to being flexible in our roles and would consider part-time working and compressed hours. Please specify in your supporting statement if you are interested in a specific working pattern.
