About The Organisation
Our client’s mission is to transform the mental health and life chances of Cambridgeshire children through arts-based therapies. The organisation works with schools, providing one-to-one therapy, to help over 200 children a week to be happier and have brighter futures.

About the role
Our client relies heavily on voluntary income to deliver their services to children; therefore they are looking for an experienced fundraiser to enable them to achieve their ambitions now and into the future.

The Fundraising Manager will be responsible for continuing to develop and overseeing the organisation’s fundraising function in order to achieve income targets, working closely with the Charity Director to refresh the organisational fundraising strategy, and taking ultimate responsibility to build a sustainable portfolio for the years ahead.

The role requires regular reporting to the Charity Director/Board of Trustees, submitting accurate and up-to-date records of all fundraising activities.

About you
You will have proven fundraising experience and be comfortable leading a small team across all aspects of fundraising. It is important that you have excellent writing skills, a track record of securing grants from Trusts and Foundations, experience in prospect research to identify new funding opportunities and confident in overseeing a wide range of fundraising activities which will help achieve income targets.

A talented relationship manager, you will have highly developed communication skills. You will be able to work independently to manage your varied workload but will also enjoy being a team player who collaborates across the charity.

The charity can offer you a competitive salary, with a commitment to the Real Living Wage. They offer a supportive working environment including flexible working and a focus on the professional development of all staff. As a mental health charity, the organisation focuses on staff wellbeing, a positive work/life balance, and provide both an employee discount scheme and a Staff Support Hub.
