Job Description

Thank you for considering the Trusts Fundraising Officer role with Redthread. We are a team of compassionate, collaborative, and courageous professionals, committed to empowering young people to change their lives.  This animation was created with our Youth Ambassadors and this clip from BBC News will give you a taster of what we do every day

 The Redthread team has grown significantly over the last few years, and we have further opportunities to expand our services in the year ahead. Our highly successful fundraising team has enabled this growth by driving income generation from new sources and increasing our reserves. We are looking for an exceptional Trusts Fundraising officer to join the team.

If you enjoy writing, research, understanding service impact, working closely with frontline staff, and can work diligently, it’s a great area to work in with lots of opportunities. We would like to see some fundraising or marketing experience, but we are happy to support people with relevant skills looking to transition into Trust fundraising.

 We have a wide range of Trust supporters, such as smaller family trusts wanting to make a difference in their local area; well-known UK grant makers; large international foundations. In the last financial year, Charitable Trusts and Foundations were Redthread’s largest source of income so your work will make a demonstrable difference to young people’s lives. Even though Redthread has a strong grants portfolio, the area you would work on is still relatively new and it has lots of room for development – it’s a real chance to make your mark.

 We set high standards, but we expect you to be conscientious, not achieve the impossible. You’ll need to be a great communicator; able to assimilate complex information in creative, compelling ways that inspire others to support our cause. We’re a hard-working, dynamic team so you will need to thrive on working collaboratively in a busy and dynamic environment.

In return, the successful candidate will receive a competitive salary, a supportive and flexible hybrid working environment, excellent staff training and development package and access to a range of employee benefits including enhanced annual leave and family leave entitlements, employer pension scheme contribution, access to clinical supervisions, enhanced employee assistance programme services and more. The offer of employment is conditional on satisfactory pre-employment checks.

Please go to our website where you will find a job description with a person specification including details of the terms and conditions of the post. Please read through the person specification carefully as we will be shortlisting applications using these criteria.

  • Please note: This position is offered on a permanent contract.
  • Applications deadline: 10 am, Monday 27th June. 

We would like this role to start as soon as possible. We will provide comprehensive training and induction.

Please Note: If we receive a high number of applications, we reserve the right to close the advert before the closing date. Therefore, early applications are encouraged.

have suffered a sexual assault, or want to find a new home beyond

they face through our dynamic youth work programmes.
