Work With Us: Fundraising Officer (Grantmaking Trusts)

We are looking for an experienced trusts fundraiser to join our dedicated team. This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and proactive trusts fundraiser to work within a small, friendly and dynamic charity that makes a genuine difference to thousands of people in Bristol each year. The role will involve the strategic development of large, multi-year grants, and managing our existing programme of applications to smaller family trusts.

We are looking for an organised, meticulous and persuasive bid writer. You will also need to be tenacious, resilient and persistent, with strong written and verbal communication skills. You will have experience of developing and maintaining relationships with a variety of stakeholders and colleagues, and you will have the sensitivity and tact that is needed for working within a charity that supports people affected by life-threatening illness.

If you have a track record in securing grants and building relationships with grantmaking trusts and you are looking to take the next step in your career, this is an ideal job. You will work closely with the Chief Executive to develop our existing pipeline of funders, building on several years of growth that has seen us increase income from grantmaking trusts significantly.
