We’re frequently asked to keep fundraisers informed about roles that are genuinely a “bit different” and “innovative” and whilst every role has it’s charm, it is rare to come across a role that is genuinely unique and with the potential to be career defining. Well, here is such a role.
We are working with an organisation that is making great strides in changing the world around us for the better. They are looking to change consumer and indsutry behaviour so that choices are being made that are for the better of human health and our planet’s ecology. This isn’t being done through brow beating or appealing to people’s better natures, but by manipulating market forces for social purpose. By investing in emerging technologies and lobbying governments to ease the regulatory landscape, they are creating an environment in which the best choice for the planet is also the most effectove. convenient, and cost-effective solution for the consumer. They have made enormous strides already and like a boulder down a mountain side, there is no stopping their momentum.
This is a global organisation with offices and networks around the world. You will be responsible for managing their major donor netwrok across Europe, whilst also connecting donors to global initiatives. Their current major donor portfolio is c.£1m with gifts ranging from £10k – £300k. This growth has been organic and led by the European Senior LEadership Team. They are now looking to bring someone in who can continue to build on these relationships and put in place stewardship systems that will allow them to full capitalise on their extensive network.
Fear not, you won’t be a fundraising island. The SLT will remain involved, under your direction, in fundraising and will passionately assist as needed. Equally there is an international network of 15 fundraising professionals in the organisation and you will have access to all the researchers, grant writers and admin support you could want. In a similar vein, the databases and data capture systems you will want to make use of already exist and are being well utilised.
This is one of those few genuine opportunities where the foundations are A+ amd a talented fundraiser will be able to come in and have immediate impact.
This organisation is genuinely international with team members based throughout Europe. You will be completely home-based with the team meeting twice a year face to face. This set-up is inegral to who they are, so it isn’t going anywhere once lockdown is over.
If you want to work flexibiliy for an award winning charity who are going places at a breath-taking speed, then get in touch as we would love to speak with you.
