As a senior member of the fundraising team, you will take a strategic approach to leading the development and management of our Major Donor, Trusts, Corporate and Legacy programmes to maximise income and meet annual targets.  You will be accustomed to dealing with senior level figures in the corporate world and in managing the highest-level relationships between the Trust, the Charity, Corporates, Trusts, legators and major donors.


Reporting to the Head of Fundraising, the Philanthropy Manager will lead on proactively approaching a range of major donor, corporate and trusts funders to achieve a long-term strategy for growth in income.
