This is an exciting time to be joining Fauna & Flora’s Fundraising Team. The Major Gifts team have created a successful major gift programme, built on developing and nurturing long-term relationships with the people who support our conservation work.

Ours is a lively, hardworking team. Our focus is to recruit and steward individuals who give gifts of £10,000+ in support of global biodiversity conservation. Our success to date is far reaching with current relationships spanning Europe, the USA and Australia. Now we have set our sights on expansion, developing new opportunities across new and existing jurisdictions.

Crucial to our success is the supply and management of the prospect pipeline and the maintenance of the CRM database. To this end we are seeking a self-motivated individual to join our high performing Major Gifts team in this new role. The role requires an individual who understands how to conduct qualitative research in a fundraising environment using an array of sources, can operate a fundraising database with confidence, precision and ease, works well with others and is curious, inquisitive and driven in building fundraising data intelligence. Currently we use the access CRM database ThankQ and will be seeking to transition to a new CRM system in 2023, in which this post will play a part.

You will enjoy working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where the ability to respond swiftly to changing organizational and team needs is paramount. In return, we offer the opportunity to work for a ground-breaking organization at the forefront of global conservation, with generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance, and life insurance.

Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
