Bendrigg Trust Job Vacancy

Trusts & Foundations Officer

Bendrigg Trust are seeking an experienced Trusts and Foundations (Fundraising) Officer on a part-time basis (2 days, 14.5 hours a week) who will have the primary responsibility of raising income from charitable trusts and foundations. This exciting role is vitally important to the organisation at this critical and challenging time.

Based near Old Hutton, Kendal, Bendrigg Trust is an outdoor education centre specialising in working with disabled and disadvantaged people. Through inclusive adventure, residential experience and social inclusion we aim to ensure disabled people are empowered with the attitudes, skills and behaviours they need to thrive.

This role seeks to develop Bendrigg’s trusts and foundations income through building on the existing strong relationships we have with trusts, and developing new ones. The Trusts and Foundations Officer will be responsible for securing core and restricted grant income for the different areas of Bendrigg’s work to ensure that outdoor adventurous opportunities are accessible to all.

The successful candidate will have experience working in the voluntary sector and the ability to successfully manage a varied workload whilst working under pressure to meet deadlines. This role would suit a self-starter who will manage a diverse portfolio of relationships to secure funding and support for Bendrigg’s work.

This is a temporary fixed term (maternity cover) contract for a period of approximately 8 months starting October 2020. Although advertised as a PAYE position, Bendrigg will consider applications from fundraisers on a freelance basis. This role location is flexible and so both home or office-based (Kendal) applications will be considered.
