Philanthropy Coordinator

Maternity Cover (up to 14 months)

Full time position: 37.5 hours per week based in London, EC1R

Salary in the region £23,000 – £27,000 per annum

We are looking for a bright, engaging Philanthropy Coordinator who is interested in building and developing a career in Major Donor fundraising. This is an exciting role for a highly motivated individual with an ability to identify high net-worth individuals through research and to run cultivation and stewardship events.

Young Enterprise is an ambitious organisation that is determined to reach and support more young people – with an emphasis on growing our reach in the most deprived areas of England and Wales. We work with schools to ensure young people understand work, business and personal money management and have the skills they need to succeed at work. We do this to address the skills gap and avoid more young people becoming one of around 790,000 who are not in employment, education or training (NEET).

This position will support Young Enterprise by driving income from high net worth individuals (HNWIs) – particularly entrepreneurs, company founders and philanthropists. Working as part of the Philanthropy Team, this post will have a personal income target as well as supporting new fundraising initiatives as an integral part of the overall philanthropy strategy and annual budget, currently circa £2m.

A tenacious self-starter and can-do attitude is essential to enthuse existing and prospective supporters.  You will have strong organisational and time management skills.

To apply, please submit your CVs and an appropriate covering letter to Eirini.kapsala@y-e.org.uk by no later than midday on 2 February 2018.
