Job Description

We're proud to be heading up the search party for one of the UK's leading children's charities who are looking for a Philanthropy Manager covering Yorkshire or the East Midlands patch. This is a really exciting role within a successful, growing philanthropy team and a brilliant opportunity to gain national charity experience working to support some of the region's most vulnerable children.

Home-based in either Yorkshire or the East Midlands with tons of flexibility, it's a grown-up culture open to suggested working patterns with a charity that understands the importance of life and family-friendly working. Condensed hours, a 9-day fortnight and 4 days per week are all possible.

You'll be working with high net worth individuals to secure major gifts across a wide ranging portfolio. Working closely with existing major donors and colleagues across corporate and community fundraising teams, there is plenty of opportunity to open up this network and make new connections, as well as using your creative business development head to find untrodden paths. This fantastic organisation is keen to build its major donor fundraising in these regions and so this really is a rare opportunity to join a successful team of high value donor fundraisers, responsible for raising the millions of pounds needed to continue the much needed work this charity does.

Ideally, we're looking for a major gifts expert, although this role could work equally well with a talented corporate fundraiser/business developer or a candidate from the commercial sector with experience of high-net worth individuals. You're used to operating at six-figure level with senior stakeholders and have the gravitas to steward key donors strategically.

Whatever your background, you're highly motivated and target driven with exceptional stewardship and relationship management skills who is comfortable in making significant asks. This isn't the job for a maverick: you'll need to be a collaborative team player who understands that a sharing and supportive culture yields better results and that, sometimes, a colleague will be better placed to manage a relationship than you.

If this is you, please get in touch with Ellen at Charity People who can fill you in on the role in more detail.

Closing date: 9am on 1st November
