Fundraising Lead (Trusts & Corporates)

Could you be the talented fundraiser we’re looking to welcome into our small, friendly, nature charity? Leading our work with trusts and corporate partners, you’ll play an important part in protecting and restoring UK wildlife, while advancing your fundraising career in the fast-growing ‘nature and climate’ space.

The NBN Trust is a nature charity with a difference. Our mission is making data work for nature. “Data??? That’s a bit niche!”, I hear you say. And you’re right – but it’s a vitally important niche. The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries on Earth and, if we’re to stand any hope of fixing it, we’re going to need data. Lots of data. “What gets measured gets done”, as the saying goes. We need to understand what we’ve lost and what remains.  We need to set targets for nature’s recovery. And we need to measure success as nature turns the corner and starts to make a comeback.

That’s where the NBN Trust comes in. We support the entire UK conservation movement by providing public access to the wildlife data that’s needed to make good decisions for nature. We’re a conservation charity, tech charity and people charity rolled into one – a unique combination! This gives us novel opportunities for fundraising, and we’re excited to be recruiting our first ever dedicated fundraiser, to develop and lead a programme of innovative partnerships with corporate supporters, trusts and foundations. Could this be your next career move?

Working closely with our CEO and our leadership team, you’ll be responsible for:
• Initiating, developing and maintaining high-value relationships with new and potential
funders, including trusts, foundations and corporate partners.
• Creating high-quality proposals and grant bids that address our strategic priorities.
• Managing an ambitious fundraising pipeline.
• Helping to build a strong fundraising culture and ethos across the organisation.

We’re a 100% remote-working charity, so you’ll need to be comfortable and effective working from home. The whole team meets up four times a year for in-person team meetings (in London and other locations around the UK). In this role, you’ll also travel to some face-to-face meetings and events with funders and partners.

We’re an equal opportunities and Living Wage employer. We welcome all applicants, and we’re striving to create an inclusive and diverse team. If you’re interested in joining us, please read the Job Pack – and get in touch if there’s anything you’d like to ask.
