A fantastic opportunity for an experienced trusts and statutory fundraiser looking to make a difference to iconic heritage sites.

English Heritage preserves the places where the story of England was forged and where it can be re-told. We care for, protect and present a rich and varied portfolio of more than 400 historic sites throughout the country, including Tintagel, Ironbridge and Stonehenge, great monastic houses of the Middle Ages such as Hailes and Whitby, and spectacular Norman castles such as Beeston, Goodrich and Dover.

We are seeking an experienced trusts and statutory fundraiser to join our dynamic Development Department. As Grants and Trusts Manager you will be responsible for securing grants from a range of statutory funders - including the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and research councils - as well as local and regional philanthropic trusts.

With a regional focus on the West of England, the Grants and Trusts Manager will play a key role in developing and maintaining relationships with local and regional grant-making bodies, and raise funds in support of English Heritage's strategic objectives, including conservation, education and capital projects

To be successful in this role you must have a demonstrable track record of raising significant gifts from statutory and trust donors, as well as outstanding writing skills and the ability to work with multiple internal and external stakeholders. Combining strategic thinking with exceptional attention to detail, you will be able to establish and sustain great relationships, both externally and internally, and have a genuine enthusiasm for the work of English Heritage.

We offer a broad benefits package which includes a generous pension scheme, 25 days' annual leave and season ticket loan, alongside free access to all English Heritage sites and a range of well-being benefits and discounts.
