Are you a successful Trust and Foundations fundraiser or research-funding specialist looking for your next challenge?  Are you passionate about securing transformational-level gifts from charitable funders to help change lives?  Join us in the ambitious ‘Birmingham In Action’ campaign, which commits to raising over £400 million of charitable funding and one million volunteer hours, positioning the University as one of the world leaders in University development. 

To help fulfil our campaign ambitions, we are seeking to recruit a ‘Charitable Funding Partner’ (CFP) to maximise philanthropic funding. A key member of the Development and Alumni Relations Office’s (DARO) Charitable Funding team, you will work closely with a range of leading academics and senior leadership to: (i) identify and create new charitable funding opportunities from UK and overseas Trusts, Foundations and Charities; (ii) set up and manage the development of long-term charitable funder relationships; and, (iii) develop compelling charitable funding bids to secure support for our life-changing research, education, and capital programmes. You will be an enthusiastic team player, inquisitive about the combined worlds of research and philanthropy with the skill to spot new funding opportunities, and confident in your ability to initiate and grow complex inter-organisational relationships. There will be opportunities for the successful candidate to shape and develop the focus of their portfolio in collaboration with DARO leadership.
