We are seeking a Senior Trusts & Foundations Account Manager to join our successful team of five at this truly exciting time in Fauna & Flora International’s (FFI) history. Founded in 1903, FFI is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. As we approach our 120th birthday, our vision of a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it has never been more important. We work to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries with a portfolio more than 120 projects.

The Trusts & Foundations team is ambitious and dynamic. We have been honing our fundraising as part of the wider Team (including events, major donors, legacies and individual giving) and have built on developing and nurturing long-term relationships with the people who support our conservation work. In 2020, FFI raised over £26 million, of which £12.5m came from trusts and foundations. Our success to date is far reaching with current relationships spanning Europe, the USA and Australia, with many more new opportunities to be developed.

We are seeking an individual with a substantial proven track record in trusts and foundations fundraising (UK or internationally) or a comparable field. Committed to conservation and the environment, you will use your relationship management skills to strengthen links with existing funders, cultivate opportunities, and identify potential new sources of income and relationships for FFI. Using your excellent written skills and knowledge of good project development, you will work directly with FFI’s conservation programme teams to turn their visions into compelling proposals, and their work into accurate reports. Confidence in meetings and networking is essential. You may be required to travel both in the UK and internationally to cultivate relationships with current and prospective donors. You will be as tenacious as you are persuasive, your excellent interpersonal skills will enable you to build strong internal working relationships, as you bring information together to meet deadlines.

Experience in securing funds from the USA, mainland Europe and international foundations is desirable, as is experience of working internationally.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work in an exciting, friendly and lively team within an internationally impactful organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance, flexible working and life insurance. Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
