Rainbow Trust

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity is going through an exciting time where we are rebuilding!

Following a difficult year, we are pleased to be able to begin growing our care teams so that we can continue to deliver a high-quality family support service to more families in need. As such we want to grow our corporate fundraising income by securing new business and providing excellent account management to encourage our current partners to meet and exceed their own fundraising targets.

About us:

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity enables families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness to make the most of time together, providing expert, practical and emotional support, where they need it for as long as it is needed.

About the role:

We are looking to appoint an experienced fundraiser to secure new corporate partnerships to help fund the growth of our care services, and to build relationships with companies and not-for-profit organisations that achieve income targets in line with our business plan, fundraising strategy and operational plans.

This is a new role, reporting to the Corporate and Community Fundraising Manager. You will be part of a team to drive Rainbow Trust’s Corporate and Community programme, building and maintaining the pipeline through effective networking, prospecting, and stewardship. You will be responsible for a varied and fulfilling portfolio of accounts to whom you will become a main contact and provide excellent corporate account management.

You will work collaboratively towards a ‘one team one target’ approach across the Fundraising and Engagement department and ensure that the use of technology is maximized and all processes are subject to continuous improvement.

This is an excellent opportunity to maintain a breadth of fundraising experience to position yourself for future fundraising roles with increased responsibility.
