Charity People is delighted to be working in partnership with Barts Charity to find an ambitious new Senior Major gifts Manager to join their small and impactful team and help develop partnerships which fund innovative medical research and ultimately save lives.

About Barts Charity

Barts Charity's vision is extraordinary healthcare for all. They develop and fund ground-breaking medical research, state-of-the-art equipment and innovative healthcare projects not otherwise funded by the NHS. Whilst projects are based in east London, they often have national and international impact.

Their work centres around Barts Health NHS Trust (which runs St Bartholomew's, The Royal London, Mile End, Whipps Cross and Newham University Hospitals) and the Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry (part of Queen Mary University London) where there are six medical research institutes.

Every year the charity generates funds totalling £30m, which are awarded to strategically important areas for their medical partners, making the team a nationally significant healthcare funder.

About the role

This role is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in shaping the next stage of the Charity's Major Gifts strategy and to lead on a large capital campaign. As Senior Major Gifts Manager, you will help forge new relationships, steward existing important partnerships and ultimately drive income. Reporting to the Director of Major Gifts, you will work closely with the philanthropy board, Barts Charity Ambassadors as well as stakeholders at Barts Health and SMD.

About you

You will be a senior Major Gifts professional with a proven track record of securing 6-figure gifts. Proactive, dynamic and ambitious you will help the team to deliver and grow annual income from individual, corporate partnerships and trusts.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented major gifts fundraiser to take the next step in your career and gain exposure to 7-figure funding opportunities at the heart of a successful fundraising team.

For further information and a detailed job description, please get in touch with Philippa Bryant, Senior Fundraising Consultant at Charity People.

Deadline for applications is 9 am on 11th February 2020.

First round interviews will take place in the week commencing 24th February.
