We're proud to be heading up the search party for one of the UK's leading children's charities who are looking for a Philanthropy Manager covering the Yorkshire patch. It's a brand-new role within a successful, growing philanthropy team and a brilliant opportunity to gain national charity experience working to support some of the region's most vulnerable children.

Home-based with tons of flexibility, it's a grown-up culture open to suggested working patterns with a charity that understands the importance of life and family-friendly working. Condensed hours, a 9-day fortnight and 4 days per week are all possible.

You'll be working with high net worth individuals to secure major gifts across a wide ranging portfolio from £5k to over £100k. There are some existing relationships to hand over, but the purpose of this role is to grow income and generate new business so you'll need to be comfortable with that. Working closely with existing major donors and colleagues across corporate and community fundraising teams, there is plenty of opportunity to open up your network and make new connections, as well as using your creative business development head to find untrodden paths.

Ideally, we're looking for a major gifts expert, although this role could work equally well with a talented candidate from the commercial sector with experience of high net worth individuals. This role could also suit a corporate or trusts fundraiser looking for their first philanthropy job. Whatever your background, you'll be a highly motivated, target-driven person with exceptional stewardship and relationship management skills who is comfortable in making asks for significant figures. This isn't the job for a maverick: you'll need to be a collaborative team player who understands that a sharing and supportive culture yields better results and that, sometimes, a colleague will be better placed to manage a relationship than you.

If you're the person we're looking for, please send a copy of your CV to Charity People's Yorkshire consultant, Amelia Lee, for lots more detail:

Closing date: 9am on 10th April
