Advisor: Trusts and Foundations

Closing date: 05 March 2018
Location: Our Secretariat is based in Brighton, UK
Salary: £33,320, plus benefits of up to 16%

We are looking for a dynamic fundraiser with extensive experience in securing funding from a range of high-value trusts and foundations. In this role, you will be fundamental to the continuing success of our Income Pillar, raising funds to enable the Alliance to fulfil its mission to work with communities through local, national and global action on HIV, health and human rights.

With significant new investment in brand, communications and fundraising, there has never been a better time to join the Alliance. We have just embarked on a global rebranding exercise that will see the launch of a new identity and image for the Alliance in September 2018.

Our current portfolio of trust and foundation donors yields grants in the region of $40,000 to $4 million and this funding stream has been identified as a key area of further investment within the Alliance funding strategy.

This is a great opportunity to join a dedicated and growing team and to play a significant role in implementing the strategy, building a portfolio of key donors, developing and maintaining a pipeline of opportunities and leading the development of successful proposals.

Are you who we’re looking for?

  • You will be proficient in identifying and researching relevant donors and have a clear understanding of what grant making trusts and foundations are looking for.
  • You will have a track record in creating strong cases for support, leveraging our portfolio of high-impact programmes in key focus areas to garner support from donors and secure new funding.
  • You will be a formidable relationship-builder and champion of the importance of ensuring that every communication with a donor helps to deepen and nurture their support. You will have excellent writing skills and be competent in developing and writing funding proposals.
