It is a very exciting time for PTI as we continue to grow our impact on young people across the world. We are now looking for a Fundraising Executive to join our committed and talented Fundraising Team!

Job Description

Princes Trust International has been supporting young people worldwide since 2015. Our Mission is to empower young people to learn, work and thrive. 

Location: This role is based in London. Other UK based locations will be considered. Post Pandemic we will be returning to hybrid working (at least 3 days in the office, 2 days working remotely).

You will play a key part in the success of fundraising at PTI. Both through managing a small portfolio of prospects and funders and more broadly through supporting the fundraising of the wider team. This exciting and varied role will provide key stewardship, reporting and event support as needed to cultivate and progress our funding pipeline. A great opportunity to fine tune the core fundraising skills required within the not-for-profit world and a fulfilling catalytic role within an innovative and impactful organisation. Our Fundraising Executive really will be at the heart of the Fundraising Team!

Key responsibilities will include: development of cases for support, report writing, event design and implementation, progressing a personal portfolio of funders, providing flexible support to the wider Fundraising Team and representing PTI in the most compelling way across a range of funding opportunities. In doing so we will provide a nurturing, ambitious and exciting environment to further flex your fundraising muscle and fine tune the skills needed to progress further in the fulfilling world of fundraising!

The expectation would be that this colleague would be based primarily in London due to the concentration of the team working from our Dorfman Centre in London, but with flexibility on location up to two days a week subject to the responsibilities of the role.

The successful candidate will be a resilient, enthusiastic, self-starter with a strong understanding of the challenges facing young people, and the ability to deliver results under challenging and varied circumstances.

You will also have strong planning and organisational skills and the ability to work effectively with people at different levels of seniority and from different backgrounds in the public, private and voluntary sectors, with evidence of your ability to influence and secure sustainable results. 

You will have enthusiasm and passion for the vision of Prince’s Trust International, and a conviction to deliver positive outcomes for young people worldwide.

To apply for this vacancy please complete the online application – attaching a supporting statement describing how you meet the requirement for the role.

Indicative salary range for this role is £25,000.00 to £29,500.00 

The Prince's Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As part of this commitment, we undertake basic disclosure checks in accordance with the Codes of Practice for all roles within the Trust, and for our roles working directly with young people, at an enhanced level. Having a criminal record will not automatically exclude applicants.

We are committed to equality and believe in building a diverse organisation that is representative of and responsive to the needs of our young people and stakeholders.

Company Description

The Prince’s Trust believes every young person should be given the chance to flourish.

Since 1976, we’ve achieved a great deal, supporting more than 1,000,000 young people across the UK, and have returned £1.4 billion in value to society over the last ten years alone. Yet, this still represents only a small proportion of the young people who might benefit from our support. Three in four young people on our programmes move into work, education or training. Our job is to inspire and support them, to help them reach their potential, so that they can thrive and society can prosper. 

Many of the young people we help are disadvantaged, either in, or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law.

Our free programmes give young people the practical skills and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.
