Fundraising Officer (Trusts and Foundations) Vacancy

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of central London’s leading educational charities, Vauxhall City Farm.

Covering two acres, the farm is home to over 100 animals and for 45 years has given visitors from far and wide the opportunity to experience life on a farm making the use of its green space by offering a range of visitor experiences, education and training programmes, volunteering, horse riding, and events.

Despite the impact of the pandemic, we have been very successful in building our income from trusts, foundations, corporate and statutory sources. We have also launched a new capital appeal to redevelop our community gardens, riding arena and other aspects of the Farm. We are now seeking an exceptional fundraiser who can continue to grow our income and build on our success.

The Fundraising Officer (Trusts and Foundations) will work closely with the CEO, as well as the rest of the team to apply for revenue and capital funds.

The successful candidate will build relationships with potential and existing funders and be able to translate our impactful educational, environmental, recreational and therapeutic programmes and ambitions into compelling funding proposals. As the sole fundraiser within the team, supported by the CEO and Finance Manager, the role will be both challenging and exciting, offering opportunities to grow your expertise.

Our ideal candidate will be a self-starter as well as a team player, highly motivated with strong communication/writing skills and demonstrable experience of securing grants and building relationships with Trusts and Foundations.
