We are seeking a fundraising specialist who also has a passion for social justice, for this new role. Reporting to the CEO, you will use your skills and experience to make a transformative impact on our capacity to meet increasing demand for our services. The ideal applicant will have outstanding networking and communication skills and a demonstrated ability to use a strategic approach to developing a philanthropy and fundraising program; business development experience would also be highly regarded.
This role will suit applicants who embrace the opportunity to build a philanthropy/ fundraising strategy from scratch (mostly grants, major gifts, corporate partnerships, trust, foundations and occasional events). Projects in the first year may include: collaboration with the Communications Manager to choose and set up a database (CRM software), write a fundraising strategy, strategic networking with philanthropists and foundation managers, development of a grants calendar and grant writing, and major donor research.
The Fundraising Manager will be based at our Liverpool office; a flexible approach to working from home and the office would be considered after the probation period. You will be reporting to the CEO.
The successful applicant will have at least five years’ experience in fundraising and related roles and ideally a tertiary qualification in a field related to journalism, media, communications, public relations, business, sales, fundraising, social impact or marketing. An ability to work autonomously and handle competing priorities is essential.
You will be able to demonstrate your confidence and previous success in executing fundraising strategies, and you will know how to maximise the influence of the CEO and leadership team in supporting those strategies. In addition, you will have the experience and skills to work collaboratively with the Communications Manager to develop content of interest to donors and grantmakers.
Digital competence is also a key requirement – for example, you will be confident using your digital skills in using CRM databases for donor management, communication and reporting, and you will have experience using fundraising/donation software for one-off or regular online donations and for campaigns.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply.
