One of the many impacts of COVID-19 has led to thousands of Londoners experiencing food poverty for the first time. It is estimated that over 10 million meals are missed each month, due to food poverty, while at the same time over 13million meals are sent to landfill. Food poverty existed before the pandemic; it is now growing and disproportionally affecting communities who were already struggling.
City Harvest has responded to spiralling demand for food by rapidly upscaling their operation.
City Harvest is a small but growing team. We are looking for a Trusts and Foundations Manager to maximise their current growth in profile and develop new fundraising partnerships.

We need an experienced Trusts fundraiser with strong experience securing a variety of gifts through Trusts and Foundations nationally. The role requires a confident and driven fundraiser with an appetite to lead on the Trusts income for the charity, in a quickly growing environment. The ideal person will be motivated by growth and progression as this role will entail the successful candidate to grow with the fundraising team.
