20 days ago
The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.
We are looking for a Regional Fundraising Development Officer, responsible for identifying and realising regional fundraising opportunities in our South East region, raising funds for specific projects and meeting fundraising targets, as well as creating and developing new opportunities and relationships.
The role is varied and includes fundraising from major donors, grants, trusts, regional and local site based opportunities as well as through individuals and organisations whilst working closely with colleagues across the region and within the Fundraising department.
You’ll have experience of being part of the delivery of demanding and high profile projects, with degree level or equivalent experience, ideally within both major donor and grants fundraising. You will need to be able to identify and develop meaningful relationships.
Results driven and self-motivated, you’ll have the ability to implement the team’s strategies and fundraising operations.
Please note a full driving licence is required and you must be able to undertake travel across your region as well as nationally, sometimes to remote locations. There will also be evening and weekend work when required.
WHAT TO EXPECT BY JOINING A TEAM AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE
There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.
We also believe that our organisation should reflect and represent the full richness of human diversity in terms of background, identity, ability and circumstance. As groups of people currently underrepresented as Woodland Trust employees, we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are Black, Asian or minority ethnic, disabled or under 25. We are measuring our success in redressing this.
We are open to discussion of any adjustments or flexible working arrangements you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process, and if you are successful in gaining a position with us, during employment.
We promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.
We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we find the suitable candidate before the closing date.
