At Northern Learning Trust we aim to improve the potential and raise the aspiration of people through learning. Much of our work is with vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities with complex needs. We use informal learning and mentoring to build confidence and skills, and help people find solutions to their problems.
As part of our business strategy we are seeking to appoint a self-motivated fundraiser to work with our senior management team to develop and build a pipeline of funds from trusts, grants and statutory sources, including contract income. The successful candidate will have the drive to seek out new funders and opportunities, and a talent for packaging up and matching a charity’s current and future work with funders’ requirements and priorities.
With significant relevant experience of trust, grant and statutory fund raising, the successful candidate will demonstrate:
• Evidence of successful applications to trusts, grant making and statutory bodies
• The ability to write compelling proposals with excellent research skills
• Strong attention to detail and accuracy
• Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to build and develop strong relationships
• The ability to work independently and collaboratively to achieve fundraising targets
The ideal candidate will be flexible, driven and committed to our cause as well as professional, experienced and used to working in a small team. You should have a can-do, roll-your-sleeves-up attitude. Experience of working within a similar sized charity would be an advantage. You will be results-orientated, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
We are passionate about the work we do and need a person who understands our values and believes in our mission.
