Job Description

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to make the world a better place and has a talent for creative storytelling.

You will be a key member of a highly experienced and successful team. You will work with national and local charities across the UK who are transforming the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people in our society. Our clients include the RSPCA, The Wildlife Trusts, local branches of Age UK and Mind as well as independent charities.

Everyday you will be challenged to write with passion and creativity to tell the stories of our clients and the people they support. You will write about homelessness, sexual abuse, mental health, poverty, the environment and so much more. We promise no one day will be the same.

We want to recruit someone who is ready to take the next step in their career. Ideally you will have at least one year's experience working in a fundraising environment where writing grant applications is part of your role. However, you may also be an outstanding writer in a different field, with an ambition to use your talent to make the world a better place.

Whatever your current experience, we will train you to excel as a grants fundraiser. You will need to bring to the role an inquisitive mind and an attention to detail to confidently ask lots of questions until you have unpicked the compelling story at the heart of our clients' work. You will then be able to articulate this concisely and powerfully.

Key information

Our offices are based in Silsden, near Skipton. Typically, you will work from here three or four days a week. The rest of the time, we will support you to work from home.

On completion of a three-month probation period, you will join our employee bonus scheme. This enables you to earn an annual bonus of up 10% of your salary. We also offer 6% employer pension contribution.

We welcome applications from all candidates irrespective of age, pregnancy and maternity, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, or marital or civil partnership status.
