Are you an ambitious, passionate and influential individual with extensive fundraising experience, preferably in a trusts and foundations or statutory context with a desire to make a difference? Then join Shelter as Senior Trusts and Foundations Manager, where you will be responsible for looking after Shelter's relationship with our key strategic Trust and institutional funders, helping us raise vital funds that will ensure that we can be there for everyone that needs us.

About Shelter

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change - with individuals, in communities, across society - and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

About the role

Our successful candidate will support the achievement of Shelter's strategic goals in England by managing and developing a programme of fundraising and stewardship for charitable trusts and institutional donors such as the National Lottery. You will take the lead on developing and managing relationships with, and securing funding from, our portfolio of warm donors capable of giving six- and seven-figure gifts, while also ensuring that secured grants are well-managed and effectively reported on, and that new funding opportunities are assessed and responded to, in collaboration with colleagues across the organisation. Managing and monitoring performance of two direct line reports is a key aspect of this role, as is maintaining consistently high-quality standards for all proposals and other communications sent to trusts and institutional donor audiences

About you

An experienced Trusts fundraiser, you will enjoy the thrill of raising money and relish the challenges that come with working in a large, complex organisation. You will be an outstanding communicator, both verbal and written, with the ability to lead others, inspiring and supporting them to improve performance over time. Strong networking, interpersonal and relationship-building capabilities are vital, as is a strong understanding of the UK grant-making sector and current giving trends.

We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
