Looking to boost your fundraising career and open up a whole new world of possibility?
Henshaws is a much-loved charity which supports individuals living with sight loss and other disabilities across the North of England. They help people gain independence and live life to the fullest, something we often take for granted. With major plans to take the charity on to a new digital platform that will enable Henshaws’ services to be accessible nationwide, it’s an exciting time to join the Fundraising team.
With projects lined up for the coming year including the new Sensory Garden and the development of the Specialist Harrogate College, Henshaws is recruiting for an experienced Trusts and Grants Manager to maintain and develop this rapidly growing income stream.
You’ll be a self-starter and target-driven individual with a successful record of securing 5 – 6 figure sums from trusts, foundations, lottery and statutory sources as well as managing partnerships with grant-makers.
You’ll be an excellent written communicator who is also able to build strong relationships and partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders, internally and externally.
This 12 month maternity cover could be your opportunity to use your skillset in Trusts & Grants fundraising as a springboard to the next step in your career. With the option to work part time or full time, this may even suit a freelance fundraiser wanting to be part of a team and contribute to Henshaws’ strategic plans.
