Hours of work:  Full Time

Location: Leicester

When someone in the RAF family needs help, the charity they turn to is the Royal Air Forces Association.

Whatever their need, they can rely on us every step of the way to give practical assistance, expert advice and emotional support.

We have ambitious goals for our trust and foundation fundraising activity and are looking for an experienced fundraiser with a proven track record of success in soliciting and managing five and six figure grants.

Joining our Major Gifts team, you’ll be responsible for identifying and articulating fundable opportunities and, using a pipeline approach, submitting high quality proposals to potential funders. You’ll oversee implementation of the grants you win, ensuring that funder conditions are adhered to and you’ll undertake appropriate reporting.

You’ll be a highly-organised self-starter with excellent written English and the ability to proactively seek out funding opportunities. You’ll also have a good grasp of legal, governance and risk issues. You’ll share our determination to help RAF personnel and their families who have sacrificed so much in the service of their country – and you’ll be able to inspire this passion in others.
