A fantastic new opportunity has arisen for a fixed -term part-time Trusts Officer to join the Fundraising Team at SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

About the role:

As the Trusts Officer for Scotland you will work with the Regional Fundraising Manager and the branch network across Scotland to identify and apply for trusts and grants to support our charitable work.  Although home-based, you will have the opportunity of visiting branches to meet our committed and passionate volunteers whilst gaining valuable knowledge and insights into the ongoing work and projects of the charity.

About the team:

As we embark on an exciting period of change within the organisation you will be working with staff and volunteers to generate income.  Line-managed by the Regional Fundraising Manager for Scotland and NI, you will also be supported by our Central Office (London) Fundraising Team.

About you:

This is an exciting opportunity to play a vital role in developing trust and grant funding support for SSAFA in Scotland.  So, a good understanding and knowledge of Scottish grant-makers and the philanthropic world is essential.

Ideally, you will bring your own contacts and networks to this role to build on the new business pipeline and research that has already been conducted. You will also be responsible for ensuring that all current funders are provided with excellent stewardship.

SSAFA is an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
