Offering flexible working and plenty of opportunity for growth, training and development, we're looking for a talented Fundraising Officer with experience of trusts, foundations and institutional funders to join a friendly team in Cambridge. You'll work with colleagues across the globe to develop innovative conservation projects packaged to excite potential donors and funders.

This is a 360° trusts role working collaboratively and in synergy with both programmes and funders. Climate change and the preservation of our natural world are hot topics right now. At Birdlife International, you'll raise money to create protection areas to stop extinction (such as the Forests of Hope) and tackle important issues like the illegal killing of birds.

BirdLife International is the world's largest nature conservation partnership with a unique local-to-global approach. Looking to expand their institutional fundraising team with someone who is hungry to learn, grow, hone and develop their fundraising skills, as well as gaining international experience and expanding your knowledge and horizons.

On our wish-list: a track record of generating income from institutions, trusts, foundations, EU or corporate foundations. Exceptional communication and collaboration skills; able to work with stakeholders both internally and externally to develop innovative and effective projects that will grab the attention of funders. A passion for (rather than working knowledge of) wildlife, conservation and nature.

Relaxed office atmosphere and the team has worked hard to create positive vibes and opportunities to socialise. Fantastic benefits package including 12% pension contribution.

Please apply initially with a copy of your CV for lots more information. Amelia Lee is your consultant:

We're looking to move quickly with this role so please apply ASAP to avoid disappointment.
