Trust and Statutory Fundraiser
Are you a Trust & Statutory Fundraiser looking to take on the next exciting challenge in your career?
About The role/person
Reporting to the Senior Trust & Statutory Fundraising Manager, the Trust and Statutory Fundraiser will research and apply for local and regional sources of funding. You’ll have regular contact with volunteers at local Samaritans branches by phone, email, and face to face. You will also work closely with senior volunteers, including our new Regional Fundraising Officers across the UK, to identify funding needs and build cases for support that appeal to funders.
You’ll take the lead in ensuring a joined up approach to grant fundraising across the whole organisation, helping to instigate new processes for reporting on approaches, and offering support and guidance to volunteers on grant funding opportunities to support their branch activity.
We are looking for a pro-active and highly motivated individual with excellent communication skills both written and verbal. You will need strong organisational skills to meet deadlines along with planning and prioritising your work. Excellent research skills and previous experience of working within a fundraising environment is essential.
Samaritans is a unique charity that provides support to people who are struggling to cope. Last year our volunteers responded to a call for help every six seconds, and with more than 20,000 volunteers and around 150 staff, our volunteers and staff have been providing emotional support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for over 60 years.
Our Central Office is located in a converted mill in Ewell, Surrey which is just over 30-minutes by train from Waterloo and 15 minutes from Wimbledon. This post can also be based in our Leeds Branch. As an employer, we offer a good range of benefits, including 25 days’ holiday, free parking, Health Cash Plan, Pension and interest-free season ticket loans.
