Senior Fundraising Manager – Trees for Streets

Full time/part time: Part-time, 3 days per week, flexible hours

Location: Home-based

Salary: £36,000 (pro-rata), 29 days holiday, 5% pension contribution

Closing date to apply: 19th August 2021. We reserve the right to offer the job before that cut-off date if a suitable candidate emerges.

Do you want to help us with our mission to fill our streets with trees? If so, you’ll be interested to hear about the new National Street Tree Sponsorship Scheme – Trees for Streets. The progressive charity, Trees for Cities, in collaboration with Start with Local, has recently been awarded DEFRA funding to launch this exciting tech-for-good scheme, and we’re looking for a talented fundraising manager to help make this a great success.

We’re looking for an entrepreneurially minded fundraiser to generate extra income to promote and support street tree planting in each of our operating localities. In doing so you will seek to tap into both local and national funding opportunities from both the corporate and charity sectors – with an emphasis on the corporate sector.

This is an incredibly exciting role which requires a diverse commercial skillset from a motivated spirited individual. Ideally, we’d like someone with both charity and commercial experience, but we’re keeping an open mind. You’ll be a fantastic communicator, you’ll understand the subtleties of pitching something just right, and of applying enough, but not too much pressure. You’ll have a real instinctive feel for fundraising.

The nature of the project needs someone with a highly collaborative approach – we’re building a small cohesive project team.

We see the part-time nature of this role as a real feature for certain applicants. It’s very much a role for you to make your own.
