Safe Passage is recruiting a Trust & Foundations Manager to support continuing and sustainable growth in our ground-breaking work to ensure that safe routes to sanctuary exist for all people seeking asylum.

This is a new role, which through collaboration with the Head of Fundraising, will develop innovative and compelling proposals for maximising engagement and income from charitable trusts, foundations, and institutional donors. The role will focus on managing strategic relationships and stewarding existing funders; identifying, researching, and engaging new funding prospects in the UK, Europe, and the USA; and writing and submitting persuasive grant applications and evaluation reports. To undertake these responsibilities, we are looking for strong bid-writing and report-writing skills, as detailed in the Person Specification below.

Actively supporting the Head of Fundraising, you will facilitate the work of Safe Passage International across all our entities in the UK, Greece, and France whilst primarily providing support to our Fundraising team based in the UK.

Experience in a similar role would be welcome, but this could also be your first paid position in the charity sector, or you could be returning to work after time out. This position will have a dedicated training budget and you will be supported to grow and develop within your role.

We value equality and diversity in our organisation, and are striving to build a workforce reflective of the communities we work in. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, or disability. People with refugee or asylum-seeking backgrounds are experts by experience and are particularly encouraged to apply.

As a refugee charity, we offer a guaranteed interview for people with lived experience of seeking asylum who meet most of the essential criteria outlined in the Person Specification. If you have first-hand experience of applying for asylum in any country, please let us know in your application.

We respect that people’s identity is not defined by their past experiences and do not expect candidates to describe their lived experience during the interview process unless they wish to.

Closing date: Sunday 10th March 2024 at 11.59 pm
