Senior Trusts and Foundations Officer
(£30,000 – £40,000)
We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Senior Trusts and Foundations Officer to help increase the impact of our work, by working within our Programme Development team to identify, apply and steward all our trust and foundation donors. This is an ideal role for someone with a passion for fundraising in international development who has been working in this field for a few years and is keen to progress to a more senior role.
We have a big ambition to change the way the international community responds to violent conflicts around the world, as well as to inspire the general public to support the work of local people on the ground who are working tirelessly to build peace. This is a very exciting time for Peace Direct, as we have been growing at a fast pace and are likely to grow even more in the coming years. We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running and take over the management of our portfolio of trust and foundation donors (both in the UK and abroad).
The ideal candidate will have experience managing relationships (including applications and reporting) with trusts, foundations and/or institutions (including experience securing gifts of £20,000 – £500,000). They will also have excellent research and communication skills and a high standard of written English. This role will work closely with our International Programmes team and our local partners to produce high standard applications and reports to new and existing donors. Given the breadth of our work, you will be fundraising for a range of projects in different contexts ensuring a huge variety of work. This is an exciting role, suitable for people who can manage multiple priorities and work to tight deadlines.
Finally, we are looking for someone who genuinely believes in our mission to stop violent conflict and build sustainable peace and who is excited by the prospect of joining a dynamic and growing international charity.
The deadline for applications is 27 February 2019. However, we will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis so early applications are encouraged although all applications will be given due consideration.
Only completed applications will be accepted and only applicants with the right to work in the UK will be considered.
