Head of Fundraising

£42,000 - £45,000 depending on experience plus pension and benefits
36 hours net per week with occasional evening and weekend working
Home based

Over the last eighteen months we have grown audience engagement through online events and digital activity, welcoming many more younger and international members.  On the back of that success, we plan to continue growing our supporter base, and we are excited about the potential to widen audience reach, to increase support for sustaining individual churches and their communities.

We’re looking to recruit a Head of Fundraising to further develop CCT’s Fundraising, building on the recent success of CCT’s growth in audience engagement

This role within CCT offers an exciting opportunity for a fundraising professional, with a passion for England’s built heritage, to make a significant impact.  Over the next three years of CCT’s current strategic period, as the organisation delivers flagship NLHF funded projects, the Head of Fundraising will articulate the impact of these projects, and continue developing a strong case for support.

As well as sustaining existing fundraising income from grants, trusts and foundations, legacies, and individual giving, the role will be responsible for advancing local support and increasing fundraising across CCT’s England wide estate.  With their team, the Head of Fundraising will support and enable three regional teams so that the whole community support network of CCT is empowered to drive forward fundraising. This reflects an organisational wide aim to build a collaborative fundraising culture, and ensure CCT’s buildings at risk are sustained for the appreciation and benefit of future generations.

The successful candidate is likely to have developed their portfolio of fundraising skills over time in a national or international charity and can demonstrate considerable experience in increasing fundraising income, particularly in securing five and six figure donations.

They will have experience of line-managing junior fundraising staff and are looking for more managerial responsibility. As a graduate, they will have taken opportunities to improve their professional competence.
