|| Practical Action is looking for an experienced, dynamic and ambitious trusts and foundations fundraiser to work as a Senior Trusts & Foundations Officer. You will be part of a small Trusts & Foundations Team, which is part of a wider, fast-growing and high performing Partnerships and Philanthropy Team.
The Partnerships & Philanthropy team has seen significant growth over the last few years, built around strong partnerships with major funders. Practical Action has ambitions to increase income to £9m+ a year.
The Senior Trusts & Foundations Officer will play a key role in supporting this ambition, and in helping Practical Action achieve its wider goals. You will have responsibility for developing and managing a key portfolio of donors and prospects capable of making large five, six and, potentially, seven figure grants. These donors and prospects are sophisticated grant-makers, drawn from the UK, Europe and the US, giving large, multi-year grants to complex projects and campaigns.
Critical to the success of the role will be the ability to engage, communicate, build relationships and win support, not just with donors and prospects but also with a range of colleagues across Practical Action. The role will require you to engage, communicate and work with colleagues to understand often complex projects and strategies. It will require you to engage and communicate about these with donors. And it will require you to engage and work with colleagues and donors to negotiate and develop proposals and steward donors.
