Development Officer

Full time | 12 Month Maternity Cover | £22,000 - £25,500

We're looking for a Development Officer to become part of our fundraising team to help grow our income and develop the work of the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT). As a small charity doing big things to support the people, landscape and wildlife of the Dales we enjoy an excellent reputation as a 'doing' organisation which makes a real difference to people’s lives.

This role will help to develop new funding streams and support the development of projects and programmes to meet the changing charitable needs of this special area. 

Our work covers environmental, economic and social issues working in nearby urban conurbations as well as deeply rural areas. We do not own land nor other assets, and the organisation is non-political and non-lobbying. Instead we are an enabling charity supporting others through our grant programmes and directly-delivered projects.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about our work and able to build strong relationships with corporate partners, individual philanthropists and potential funders. You should be able to demonstrate experience of successful business development and/or fundraising. More important is your ability to work within our culture – which means being creative, flexible and self-motivated. 

We believe the role of Development Officer with YDMT will be a highly rewarding one, and a real opportunity for someone to develop their fundraising skills in a fantastic organisation whilst benefiting this wonderful area and its communities.

This role is a 12 month maternity cover contract, there may be potential to make the role permanent however there is no guarantee.
