About Turn2us

During the Covid-19 pandemic, there has been an unprecedented surge in demand for support from people who have been rocked by the financial impact on their livelihood. During this time, Turn2us has responded with compassion and agility.

Thanks to our supporters, we’ve been able to offer over £3 million in direct grants to households struggling to afford basic essentials. We’ve increased our telephone helpline capacity for people with additional needs and we’ve ensured our digital income maximisation resources, including our welfare Benefits Calculator and Grants Search, reflect the latest support available to people. Millions of people have used these tools since March.

We want to go further. Improving our services and targetting them to where the need exists is dependent on securing sustainable funding for new and existing programmes.

About the role

As Strategic Trust Funding Manager, you will play a core role in the pursuit of our purpose to support people in financial hardship to move from surviving to thriving. You’ll also be joining at an exciting time in the charity’s evolution. We have refined our purpose, values, strategy and structure in the past twelve months. We are co-producing our work with people who have lived experience of financial hardship, so that their unique insight and voices drive change in policy and practice.

About you

Your insight into the funding landscape, emerging trends, high value income generation and success securing significant gifts from a range of institutional funders will help shape our approach and deliver new income and impact. Your perception and confidence will help match Turn2us’ vision to funders’ interests and values.

You will instinctively understand the close relationship between institutional funders, family and personal philanthropy, enabling you to build and steward relationships and grow our income pipeline. Your superb interpersonal skills and experience of working with funders will also enable you to make the most of networks that exist within the charity and our partners, volunteers and influencers.

Your demonstrable bid and tender writing skills, alongside a naturally collaborative approach mean that you’ll work effectively with colleagues and partners to build and target insight-led compelling bids, applications and budgets for key programmes. You will enjoy being part of an ambitious income team and use your skills and experience to support and line manage a Trust fundraising colleague.

Critically, your personal values, drive and ambition to contribute to achieving impact for people without enough income to thrive, particularly in the context of Covid-19, will shine through in this key role.
