Fundraising Officer (Legacies and Stewardship), Rutland

Contract type: Part Time
Salary: £25,000 per annum/ pro rata
Contract term: Permanent

This is an exciting opportunity for a graduate, fundraiser, salesperson or performance-driven marketing professional to deliver a new role with the Uppingham Foundation, one of the UK’s highest- performing Independent School Development offices.

The School’s main fundraising audience, Old Uppinghamians, comprises some of the most successful individuals, industry leaders and society figureheads in the UK, most of whom feel very warmly towards the School they once lived and studied at.

This new position within the team structure will support prospective Legacy donors (legators) to consider leaving a gift to Uppingham in their will. A donation of this type is often highly emotive so you will need to build trusting relationships and craft meaningful philanthropic opportunities that support the post-life giving aspirations of your prospective legators. Eventually, an ever-growing community of legators will emerge and you will help the school to recognise and celebrate this important group through events, publications and giving circles.

While Legacy fundraising will form the bulk of your role, you will also support the rest of the team to thank and recognise the donors who support the school philanthropically. The stewardship aspect of the role will give you experience of the full range of giving opportunities the Foundation offers, from low-value regular gifts, to six and seven figure donations.

If you have an understanding of the principles of fundraising or other income generation or marketing models with a proven ability to build trusting professional relationships with others, we would like to hear from you.  

The role is 17.5 hours per week and work / life balance flexibility has been built into this post to attract the best possible candidates.
