We're looking for Fundraising Relationship Manager/s with great interpersonal skills and who are confident in creating and securing fundraising asks. You must have a genuine passion for our mission and a talent for gathering and telling compelling stories that bring our cause to life.

Location: Home based or hybrid, England. East Anglia is of particular interest - our central office is in Essex - but other locations could work, provided you are within easy reach of key colleagues and Country Trust activity.

Who should apply? We are genuinely open to developing someone new to fundraising but with the right instincts for fundraising and relationship development (eg instincts honed in sales or marketing), as well as wanting to hear from those with a good track record of success in any or all of the main income streams - corporates, charitable trusts, major donors, digital campaigns. We have capacity to recruit more than one role if we find the right candidates and have included a broad salary range for maximum flexibility.

The cause: As a nation we’ve lost our connection with the land that sustains us all, with big and urgent ramifications for health, sustainability and equality. The children who most need that connection with the land are those least able to access it. We’re changing this through our high quality and impactful food, farming and countryside experiences, empowering children in the most disadvantaged communities in the UK.

We are very ambitious for the children we serve. Our task is urgent and important, and we need new fundraising colleagues whose superpower is building relationships that will transform our income in line with our ambition. In return we promise you’ll see the difference you are making to young lives.

We want our team to better reflect the amazing diversity of the children and communities we work with. We are excited about the connections, creativity, and inspiration that this will bring and most of all we are committed to finding the right people for the job.
