Your new role

The Trust Fundraising Manager is responsible for generating income from charitable trusts and foundations, with a focus on growing and sustaining long-term partnerships. You will be identifying opportunities for new funding from charitable trusts and foundations to support our work and research and target charitable trusts and foundations whose criteria match the charity’s aims and activities.

You will need to achieve income targets and ensure the sustainability of the income stream and manage a portfolio of existing charitable trusts and foundations to increase their grant giving. You will also manage processes for all funder reporting and communications, including acknowledging receipt, grant monitoring, evaluation, and impact reporting and ensure we fulfil our obligations to funding partners.

You will need knowledge of principles of effective fundraising and excellent planning and research skills for income generation. You will also need excellent communication skills across all levels and be able to manage multiple projects, identifying conflicting demands and establishing priorities to meet objectives.
