As our new Grants Relationship Lead, you will help deliver Caring in Bristol’s income growth by leading the acquisition and management of specific major funder relationships (five/six figure), especially from grants and foundations.
You will identify and lead the creation of high-quality trust and foundation applications, working with the Partnerships & Impact Manager, and take responsibility for a portfolio of existing major funders to build relationships, improve funder satisfaction and secure continuity/growth of funding.
More widely, you will be instrumental in delivering a best-practice funder partnership and communication programme at Caring in Bristol, finding innovative ways to create value for funders through reports, webinars, site visits and other means of funder involvement.
You will be an ambassador for the charity, confidently representing the charity to funders and other stakeholders and leveraging your funding relationships to advance Caring in Bristol’s reputation and influence.
The Grants Relationship Lead will also act as a voice of the funder within the charity, bringing the funder perspective to key aspects of our work such as project/proposition design, monitoring and evaluation and communication, with a view to making Caring in Bristol more sustainably fundable for the future.
In particular, you will work collaboratively with staff in service delivery, income generation and finance to help improve/deliver those aspects of our work that can influence funder acquisition and relationship management.
