Major Gifts Officer – About the Role
This is an exciting opportunity to use your knowledge and expertise to shape fundraising within an international NGO.

We want you to help end animal suffering by playing a critical role in the development of our Partnership Giving strategy, diversifying our income to ensure sustainable growth that will enable us to deliver our ambitious new organisational strategy.

You will gain valuable experience helping to build a pipeline of high-net-worth individuals, trusts and foundations that can contribute five and six figure gifts. You will collaborate with UK and International staff to gather information and help craft compelling proposals and reports that inspire and meet the needs of donors. 

You will also identify prospects, produce researched profiles and maintain up-to-date records while helping to ensure we are GDPR compliant. You will manage a small portfolio of donors, delivering the highest level of stewardship and cultivation. 

We are looking for a confident and engaging communicator with a passion for relationship management, able to manage a portfolio of major donors, trusts or foundations. You will be target driven and have good analytical skills in order to identify and prioritise prospective donors. You will have excellent organisational skills and attention to detail. Experience of working in a similar position where you have developed robust fundraising proposals and presentations will be important. A track record of securing five figure gifts from high-net-worth individuals, trusts or corporates would be an advantage. 

With lots of scope for growth in the area of Partnership Giving, this is a real opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to make their mark. Apply for this opportunity now and help move the world to protect animals. 

Other organisations may call this role Trusts Officer, Fundraising Executive, Trusts Fundraising Officer, Partnership Giving Officer, Fundraising Officer, or Fundraiser.
