At the Canal & River Trust, we believe life is better by water. Set up in 2012 to care for historic waterways across England and Wales, we aim to bring wellbeing benefits to millions by transforming our canals and rivers into spaces where local people can spend time and feel better. You can help turn that vision into reality, by developing and delivering an ambitious corporate fundraising programme and building long-term strategic partnerships for the Trust.

About the role

Your job will be to deliver a corporate engagement strategy that helps us raise funds, build brand awareness, and gain wider support for our work. This will involve cultivating a range of corporate partnerships while at the same time exploring new trends in corporate and leadership giving to ensure we have a healthy pipeline for the future. You will also work with colleagues across the Trust to identify opportunities for corporate engagement and to coordinate activities between regions so that the benefits are maximised.

About you

With an impressive track record in corporate fundraising already under your belt, you'll know how to secure and manage valuable corporate partnerships and will be able to develop ambitious fundraising strategies that deliver results. You'll also need a thorough knowledge of fundraising best practice. A key part of your role will be to represent the Trust externally at fundraising activities and events, so it's important that you have excellent networking and interpersonal skills. Other qualities we are looking for include entrepreneurialism, creativity and the ability to remain calm under pressure.

About us

We're the charity who look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of canals and rivers. Our waterways contribute to the health and wellbeing of local communities and economies, creating attractive and connected places to live, work, volunteer and spend leisure time. These historic, natural and cultural assets form part of the strategic and local green-blue infrastructure network, linking urban and rural communities as well as habitats. Our waterways are on the doorstep of 8 million people and reach some of the most deprived communities within the UK. By caring for our waterways and promoting their use we believe we can improve the wellbeing of our nation. Come and be part of it.
