The Royal Osteoporosis Society is the only UK-wide organisation dedicated to finding a cure for osteoporosis and improving the lives of everyone affected by it. We help the nation look after its bones and appreciate the importance of bone health for everybody.
More than three million people in the UK affected by osteoporosis. But unlike other common, chronic conditions, osteoporosis has a low-profile. Only around one in four adults are aware of what the condition means, and it has been discussed significantly less over the last five years than most other chronic conditions.
To support our ambitious growth plans, we are seeking to grow and diversify income from trusts and foundations and secure more multi-year grant awards.
In this exciting role, you will work as part of the Partnerships and Philanthropy Team to secure gifts from trusts and foundations by researching, developing and writing compelling funding bids and reports and building relationships with funders to secure sustainable income.
Reporting to the Head of Partnerships and Philanthropy, the postholder will be responsible for the development and delivery of an annual plan to achieve a six-figure income budget and for monitoring and reporting on the trusts income pipeline.
We’re looking for an experienced fundraising professional with knowledge of the UK funding landscape, philanthropy and fundraising methods with excellent writing skills and the ability to synthesise information from a range of sources and turn complex projects into clear and compelling cases for support.
If you are looking to join a fantastic organisation and team where you can really make a difference, we’d love to hear from you.
Our offices are based outside Bath, but we have a very flexible approach and this post can be based remotely although we would expect a weekly visit to the office in normal circumstances.
To apply, applicants should provide a comprehensive CV, including details of relevant experience and achievements. This should be supplemented by a supporting statement in a cover letter, demonstrating how your skills and experience meet the person specification.
Interested? We’d love to hear from you.
The closing date is midday on Wednesday 19 May 2021
