Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK with a nationwide network of rehoming centres and charity shops. Last year, Dogs Trust centres cared for over 15,000 dogs; we never put a healthy dog down.
This is a truly exceptional opportunity for a talented Trust and Foundations Officer to join a high performing and friendly team.
The Trust Team has enjoyed a successful 2019 but it is still relatively new and so there is considerable scope to apply fresh energy and enthusiasm and make an enormous difference to dogs in need, using your first class skills to prepare inspiring and original applications for funding.
You will have a successful track record of securing grants from charitable trusts and foundations, well-developed written and verbal communication skills and, above all, be a strong, positive team player committed to the aims and values of Dogs Trust.
You will have exceptional attention to detail and a strong aptitude for writing creative narrative that will ensure our applications stand out when being assessed.
We have a comprehensive benefits package, which includes excellent annual leave and pension allowances. As well as this, though, you will you join a team of highly professional and passionate colleagues in the fundraising team - legendary for its friendliness, and you’ll also learn from and get to meet dedicated experts in the field of canine care, research and welfare. Add to this, the fact that the whole charity has a brilliant upbeat and collaborative culture promoted by a highly supportive management team.
Along the way you’ll be encouraged to see Dogs Trust’s amazing work for yourself and visit our world class Rehoming Centres. You’ll also enjoy spending time with donors and supporters who share our love of dogs.
Perhaps best of all, being a Trusts and Foundations Officer at Dogs Trust means working in environment where staff can apply to bring their own dog to work - so there are always plenty of our four legged friends around to keep us company in the office while we trust fundraise!
