The Community Foundation for Staffordshire and Shropshire is the leading independent grant-giving body in Staffordshire and Shropshire.  We award more than £2m each year to voluntary and community groups, registered charities and social enterprises across our area.  We are based in Stafford, with a satellite office in Telford, and are committed to supporting our local voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

Due to continued success and further growth, we are creating a new role within our Business Development Team for a Head of Business Development and Philanthropy.  This role will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Business Development Team, and work with the Chief Executive and Business Development Sub-Committee and the wider board to help to establish strategic direction.  Demonstrable experience and a proven track record in raising funds and securing donations from private sector supporters are essential for this role.

If you are passionate about philanthropy or want to help people to give something back to their community then this role could be perfect for you.  You will meet a variety of people from a range of backgrounds who share an interest in changing local lives.  The role requires excellent relationship management and an ability to translate a potential donor’s top line ideas into a tailored strategy or fund set-up that will meet their needs and those of our local communities.  Identifying, researching and connecting with individuals, businesses, corporates, charitable trusts and professional advisors with a connection to Staffordshire and / or Shropshire assures the role has variety and no two days are the same.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
