About the Family and Childcare Trust
The Family and Childcare Trust is a leading national family charity in the field of policy, research and advocacy on childcare and family issues, with over 40 years’ experience in making things better for families. Our vision is a society where all families are well-supported and have genuine choices about their lives. Our mission is to make the UK a better place for families.
Our approach is to listen, innovate, advocate and support, in order to achieve long lasting change for all families. We focus particularly on those who face disadvantage or multiple challenges, including social exclusion, precarious work conditions and poverty. Our on-the-ground programmes and services with parents and providers inform our research and campaigning priorities. In turn, our research produces evidence and insight that informs our work with families, policy makers and providers.
The benefits of working with the Family and Childcare Trust include generous annual leave, pension contributions, flexible working, employee assistance programme and membership of Better Bankside offering discounts and promotions in the local area.
The Corporate Fundraising Officer will build and manage an external network of corporate partners to maximise opportunities for income generation.
This is a great opportunity to strengthen your corporate fundraising skills. It is a new role that will enable you to make your mark. It also means lots of team working as you will need to gain excellent knowledge of our different areas of work so as to effectively identify suitable corporate partners and sponsors.
You will also get a chance to develop your knowledge of trusts and foundations and hone your writing skills with drafting funding proposals and bids.
