The Major Donor Manager is a vital role within Restless Development’s fundraising team. Responsible for raising income through building long term relationships with high net worth individuals, this role also manages the Events Coordinator, and is likely to be managing a Corporate Coordinator, giving oversight to much of the unrestricted income being raised at Restless Development.
Currently the vast bulk of financial support at Restless Development comes from multiyear restricted grants. To ensure we are reaching our aims of maintaining a balanced budget and sustainable growth, we are committed to increasing investment in the Fundraising team in London with a view to growing unrestricted income year on year. The Major Donor Manager is key to this, working closely with the Senior Management Team, trustees and patrons to network with and cultivate new and current financial supporters.
The role has a varied portfolio of donors. You’ll have to be passionate about what Restless Development do and be able to clearly explain and present that work and impact to our supporters. There’ll be the occasional late night at an event, and you could be expected to accompany supporters on a visit to see our work in action in Africa or Asia. Strong management skills are a must, to ensure you’re getting the best out of your team, along with a calm head, superb organising skills, and a passionate belief that young people are changing development.
