Trusts & Foundations Manager

Salary: circa £35,000 per annum

Start Date: As soon as possible

Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge. Current policy offers partial remote working within the UK

We are seeking an experienced fundraiser to join our successful team as a Trusts & Foundations Manager. You will have a substantial proven track record in fundraising from trusts and foundations and/or government bodies, or in a comparable field. Experience in securing funds from the USA, mainland Europe and other international sources is desirable. You will use your excellent relationship management skills to strengthen links with existing funders, cultivate opportunities already discovered, as well as identify potential new sources of income for Fauna & Flora.

Confidence in meetings and networking, both face-to-face and online, is essential. You will have excellent attention to detail when it comes to writing and reviewing documents. Using your project management and writing skills, you will work directly with Fauna & Flora’s conservation programme teams to turn their visions into compelling proposals and showcase their work through accurate reports.

Success in this role is only possible through good working relationships and a pro-active approach. Interpersonal and time-management skills are critical to enabling you to build strong internal working relationships, as you bring information together to meet deadlines.

Our ideal candidate will also have a passion for conservation and the environment, and clearly demonstrate their commitment to Fauna & Flora’s values.

We are a lively and ambitious Trusts & Foundations team, and have supported significant growth in the organisation’s restricted income. In 2021, Fauna & Flora raised over £36 million, of which £21.5m came from trusts and foundations. Our success to date is far reaching with donors from all corners of the world supporting Fauna & Flora to deliver over 130 projects in more than 40 countries.  We have just developed our three-year strategy, which fits in with the organisation’s new 2030 Strategy and includes ambitious targets for fundraising and exciting opportunities ahead.

In return, Fauna & Flora offers a 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.
