Full Time

We are working with a wonderful, national charity that has recently gone through a merger to join forces with another charity. This charity provide care and support to young people and adults that suffer from this condition, as well as fund research into this condition. The charity is looking to recruit an experienced Trust and Major Gifts Fundraising Officer, who can secure donations between £10,000 - £100,000 towards medical research and care services.

Working in a brand new office based in Central London, you will be responsible for working with a mixture of funders that have the capacity to give up to six figures. This role will have a great deal of variety funding projects and services that span care and research. The merger of the two charities brings warm donors on the major donor side, which presents a fantastic opportunity to carry out face to face meetings and develop relationships. It's important to flag up that the majority of this role is based on trusts fundraising as this is the more established area, with the opportunity to grow major gifts fundraising in the long term.

As a Trust and Major Gifts Fundraising Officer, you will be developing a plan for fundraising from Trusts and Foundations in collaboration with the Major Supports Team. This charity is looking for an individual who has a minimum of two years in a trust or major gift role, and a track record of securing five-six figure gifts from Trusts and/or Major Donors, including multi-year gifts.

This is a great chance for the right Trust and Major Gifts Officer to really make their mark on a fantastic organisation enabling you to be a key representative for the charity and work collaboratively with colleagues across the UK.
