Trusts and Foundations Manager

Job Description

Champion our flagship heritage restoration project at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings an industrial complex started in the 18th Century which includes the world`s first skyscraper. You will take the lead on delivering our capital campaign strategy, fundraising from charitable Trusts and Foundations for our Main Mill and Kiln project. You will join our successful Philanthropy team who in their first two years have exceeded budgeted income through a strong portfolio of fundraising projects and innovative approaches to securing a range of supporters.

In this autonomous role you will be reporting to the Head of Philanthropy, and whilst you might be based in our London office, we are flexible on location with the option of working in one of our other offices or from home. You will be focussed on increasing our pool of potential Trusts and Foundations, applying for new high value grants in support of our capital campaign target and for stewarding secured donors.

With substantial experience of working in a similar role you will be highly driven and motivated by having an immediate impact on this key heritage restoration project and by the potential to influence our capital campaign strategy. You will be able to demonstrate how you`ve successfully fundraised from private trusts and foundations, through compelling written applications. Exceptionally organised you will be comfortable working with complex financial budgets and will have worked with Microsoft Dynamics or other CRM fundraising databases.

We are happy to discuss flexible hours that work for you to enable you to play a lead role in delivering this key project and our evolving wider philanthropy strategy. You will be rewarded with a competitive salary and benefits package which includes the option to enter the Civil Service Pension scheme, and a range of other corporate discounts and lifestyle benefits.

We pride ourselves in creating an inclusive working environment where your individuality will enable us to be successful. We are committed to having a recruitment experience that creates opportunities for all.
