Development Manager
Educational Institution
West London
£38,000 - £45,000

Charity People are delighted to be partnering with a leading educational institution in West London. Founded over one hundred years ago, they have a reputation for excellence, high academic achievement and their reach stretches to a community which is socially, culturally and ethnically diverse, indicative of the cosmopolitan world of West London.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Development Manager to come in and work to deliver a fundraising programme to encourage lifelong engagement and support. Sitting within a team of three people, and with a keen focus on Individual Giving, your role will also cover a wide area of fundraising activities, from building and managing a prospect pool of alumnae, parents, friends and Trusts/Foundations, to taking a lead for soliciting major gifts through face-to-face fundraising and managing their regular giving programme.

As Development Manager, you will also take a proactive approach to manage relationships with key stakeholders and members of the community, ensuring that all donors are appropriately thanked and acknowledged, providing a high level of donor stewardship, including devising stewardship events where appropriate. Furthermore, you will write and update reports and newsletters on current priority projects to current and prospective donors as required.

We are looking for someone with a wealth of experience in fundraising, across a variety of income streams. We welcome applications from those who may have worked as Fundraising Manager or Individual Giving Manager (or similar) for a Charity or an Educational Institution.

While you may be stronger in a particular field of fundraising, you should have most certainly worked in individual giving. You should have experience in organising and managing events, and have outstanding communication and interpersonal skills with an ability to build relationships with people at all levels, both internally and externally, and to inspire trust

You should be results focussed, and able to meet deadlines in a fast paced environment and be able to effectively analyse data.

Interested applicants should send their CV in the first instance to Ben Garner at Charity People by Friday, 29th January 2021.

We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for the charities we work with.
