Senior Trust Fundraising Officer

Closing date:  Monday 6 December (9am)

About us

We're the UK's leading charity for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

Right now, an estimated 500,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that many people have never heard of and for which there is no known cure. Because of the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding these diseases, thousands of people are suffering in silence. But they're not alone. We're here for them. And we're not going anywhere until we've beaten Crohn's and Colitis for good. 

The role

Salary: £30,000 - £33,000 per annum, depending on experience
Full Time
Place of work - Flexible

This is an exciting role that will support sustaining and growing income from trusts and foundations. Building on a warm prospect pipeline, you will be integral to maintaining trust relationships and devising new funding opportunities to support the Charity’s ambitious plans. You will be pivotal in ensuring that funders are kept informed of the progress of projects and services through the submission of visually impactful reports. 

About you

You’ll be an experienced and competent individual with at least three or four years trust fundraising experience, excellent writing skills, good data management skills and the ability to work with stakeholders at all levels across the charity. 


The future

It’s safe to say all our lives have changed since the start of the pandemic and Crohn’s & Colitis UK had to adapt and change as well. Our fundraising campaigns have gone from strength to strength and we have been delighted and inspired by our community which has responded to our new, and in some cases virtual, fundraising activities with enthusiasm.

We are moving into a period of growth as we put the impact of the pandemic behind us and innovate and adapt further. We are confident the Charity can continue to support those who need us, and our new strategy will give us the direction and drive for the next exciting chapter in the Charity’s future.
