About role and the team
Over the last three years our Philanthropy programme has doubled in size, creating a solid foundation for this Senior Manager role to build on quickly; this role will be responsible for expanding our networks ad reaching new donors at a challenging time for the sector. There will be an emphasis on bringing fresh ideas on how we can build our pipeline through new products and tactics as well as working closely with the Events team to deliver our annual fundraising dinner.
Alongside bringing in new business, you will manage a small portfolio of donors with the capacity to give at six-figures+ and high value networks to explore and provide inspiring and supportive line management to a Philanthropy Manager who manages their own portfolio of five-figure+ donors and will support with new business development.
The Philanthropy team are high performing, experienced and energetic. Joining as a Senior Philanthropy Manager you will benefit from working together closely to achieve our ambitious plans. We will be growing our income to over £3 million a year, which this role is key to making a reality.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
