We’re looking for a positive, experienced, and highly organised individual to join our team as our new Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager!

About the role

Are you an experienced corporate fundraiser with an interest in working in the international development sector? Are you creative, strategic, highly organised, a confident and effective communicator and strong team player?  

We are looking for an experienced Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager to work closely with the Head of Programme Funding to drive new donor engagement and secure sustainable, multi-year funding. If you are seeking a dynamic and engaging role which offers you the chance to play a pivotal role within a small but ambitious organisation, then this could be the job for you.

You will be an exemplary relationship builder and have experience in developing multi-faceted corporate partnerships (ideally with experience and success in employee engagement, corporate sponsorship, and/or operational partnerships).

The role also line manages the Senior Programme Funding Officer, a position that provides administrative and fundraising support across the whole fundraising team.  Please note that we are a small team and so you’ll need to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves to help out team members and to support new business across other restricted income streams.  

If you think you have the skills, qualities and drive to fulfil this role, but don’t meet all of the specifications, or perhaps you’ve gained your experience in (for example) commercial sales or within relationships management and are looking to move into development work, we would still welcome hearing from you. We’re always interested to hear from talented individuals who can help drive the success of the team.  

What can the Foundation offer you 

  • You will be part of an organisation that values you. As a smaller organisation, we value everyone’s individual perspective and voice and seek all staffs input into strategy, annual plans, and organisational values. 
  • A positive and collaborative culture – we are proud of our leadership and management style that encourages teamwork, open and honest communication, while maintaining a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where everyone can thrive 
  • One-on-one regular meetings with your line manager or director to focus on career and professional development while also taking an interest in your personal wellbeing
