Trinity is a leading sailing charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged young people through the challenge, adventure and achievement of offshore sail training. Each year the charity helps around 200-300 young people discover the extent of their own capabilities, develop essential life skills and start to overcome the challenges they face with new confidence and self-belief.
From their base in South Devon, Trinity operates a small fleet of traditional sailing vessels which are all nationally important examples of the UK’s maritime heritage. Through their youth programmes, sailing courses, charter and training initiatives they help preserve these unique vessels for future generations.
We are working with the charity to recruit an experienced and dynamic Fundraiser who has the necessary experience to secure fundraising through Trusts, Foundations, Statutory and other sources (e.g.events and corporates) to support and develop their youth programmes, skills and training initiatives and capital projects.
This is an exciting role for someone with a passionate and creative approach to fundraising, a self-starter with exceptional interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills. You will be joining a small, committed team and will work closely with the Board of Trustees. We are looking for someone who has the necessary experience to research, identify and lead on the development and submission of grant funding applications to charitable trusts and foundations, statutory and lottery sources. You will be able to build strong relationships at all levels with funders, internal/external stakeholders, donors, influential networks and key contacts and will actively contribute to the wider work of the organisation.
