Would you like to work in an innovative national charity which aims to combat social isolation and loneliness particularly among older people?

Do you have excellent fundraising skills and a proven track record in building effective relationships with key trusts and foundations?

This is a great opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic Trusts & Grants Manager to join our team!

This is an exciting opportunity to join our national charity at a key time of growth. We are looking for someone with a passion to address loneliness and a strong track record in trust and foundation fundraising. If this is you, we would be pleased to hear from you.

Linking Lives UK works with churches across the UK to establish befriending projects in local communities based on a tried and tested model. These projects operate either on the basis of home visiting or telephone befriending (or both) and we provide the necessary training, documentation and support to enable effective setting up and ongoing smooth running on a local level.

Building on the momentum of raising funds through trusts and foundations over recent years, we are now looking to develop a consistent and long term funding strategy to enable us to carry out our ambitious short, medium and longer term plans. The successful candidate will be required to work remotely whilst engaging regularly with other members of the team and be in a position to recommend innovative and inspiring approaches to raising funds.
