Institutional Funding Manager

Institutional Funding Manager

We are looking for an exceptional Institutional Funding Manager to lead on securing institutional income for an international children’s right charity.

You will be working for a charity that believes children should enjoy a safe and secure childhood, but for those growing up in the toughest circumstances, these rights are denied.

This role will strive to identify and unlock institutional and other funding streams to maintain sustainable financial support.

Some of your key responsibilities:

  • Develop, write and submit strong funding applications
  • Build on and develop strong relationships with existing funders
  • Build strong relationships with the Partnerships and Programmes team
  • Manage and lead the identification of approaches to various new grant makers and partners
  • Identify target institutions, foundations, trusts, consortia, and companies with a good match to the organisation
  • Identify and plan follow up approaches to funding opportunities from institutional donors
  • Network within the international development sector
  • Develop and manage the organisation’s pipeline of prospects
