Senior Fundraising Officer
Reference number: A3741018
Location: Sherwood, Nottinghamshire

Salary starting at: £22,073 - £23,912 per annum
Hours: Full time
Contract: Maternity Cover - up to 1 year

Over the last two years, this charity has secured over £1 million for their work in Sherwood Forest and they require someone to play a leading role for the fundraising work across Sherwood into the future. This role will oversee the delivery of the Fundraising Strategy for the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre project, which will include direct fundraising work, supporting departments to deliver their elements of the strategy, and delegating further pieces of work. The post holder will also play a leading role in the continued development of the Sherwood 2020 landscape funding plan, which has the potential to make a significant difference right across Sherwood.

They are looking for someone who can translate the amazing work they do at Sherwood into cases for support that inspire potential funders. They need an individual who is confident working with grant funders, businesses, charitable trusts and foundations, and they are always looking for new and innovative ways to bring in further funding from new sources. As a motivated and experienced fundraising professional, you will take a confident, collaborative and creative approach to achieve outstanding results, particularly when working with external partners. Key to your success in the role will be your excellent networking skills, future-focused approach and ability to identify and manage critical pathways and risks.

Although they are willing to be flexible as to where the post holder is based they would expect some travel to be undertaken to Sherwood and the regional office.
