Fundraising Development Officer | Full or Part-Time 3-5 days   £29,566 - £31,783 (pro rata) 

Based at our offices in Clapham, near Settle, with flexibility for hybrid working  

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) is a small charity doing big things for people, landscape and wildlife in the Yorkshire Dales.

Over the last 25 years we have delivered diverse and inspirational projects. Our vital work has helped to plant 1.5 million trees and secure the future of over 750 hectares of wildflower hay meadows, creating habitats for our wildlife and combatting climate change. We’re passionate about inspiring disadvantaged groups and future generations to care for this special part of the world.

About the role

Our ambitious fundraising strategy has enabled us to grow and maintain our annual voluntary income above £1m. We aim to continue to secure new partnerships to increase our ability to help tackle climate change, biodiversity loss and connect more people with nature. We are committed to providing the highest level of stewardship to our donors and partners, inspiring them to continue to make regular donations and large multi-year commitments.

Our new Development Officer will play a key role in implementing a new 3 year Trusts and Foundations and Philanthropy strategy, aiming to raise £400,000 per annum towards our total fundraising target.

As a small but forward-thinking charity we provide a friendly and supportive culture, with fantastic development and training opportunities, and the opportunity to contribute your ideas at all levels.

About you 

We are looking for someone who is passionate about our work and able to build strong relationships with our supporters, including corporate partners, philanthropists and trusts and foundations. You should be able to demonstrate experience of successful business development and/or fundraising. 

Underpinning all of this is your ability to work within our culture – which means sharing our values of being creative, caring, honest and enabling.
