Do you have what it takes to be part of the Walking With The Wounded team?  We have a vacancy for a Trusts and Foundations Manager in our Fundraising Unit.  The Fundraising Unit is a results driven, ambitious and supportive team.

In this role you will make a vital contribution to the Fundraising Unit’s objective to bring about transformative change for ex-servicemen and women and their families by unlocking income and raising the profile of Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) through strategic partnerships.  In 2020 the Fundraising Unit aims to secure over £3.5 million in funding.

The Trusts and Foundations Manager plays a key role within the Fundraising Unit, building and maintaining strong relationships with trust and foundations partners to maximise income for WWTW.  In this role you will be responsible for independently managing a portfolio of existing high value donors to WWTW, as well as identifying and cultivating relationships with new potential funding partners with a focus on £50,000+ donors.  Working with the Director of Fundraising, you will play a critical role in shaping and delivering the high-value fundraising strategy at WWTW and will work to an individual six-figure income target.

In return we will provide you with the opportunity to develop your skills and career in fundraising in a supportive, inclusive environment.

We are willing to discuss remote working options with applicants from all locations.  Our Head Office is based in Norfolk and from time to time you may be asked to attend the office for meetings.

Interviews will be held w/c 14 September and may be held via Zoom or another webinar type platform, depending on current Covid-19 restrictions.
