Role background:
Campaign Bootcamp is dedicated to ensuring that people impacted by injustice are leading campaigns on issues that affect their lives. We’re bringing together a grassroots movement of skilled, connected people, through highly-effective and accessible training programmes so that the most marginalised tackle the injustices that impact them.

Our graduates testify before Parliament, organise national demonstrations, change laws and wage important, successful campaigns. They are from diverse and marginalised communities and our evaluation shows that they are developing confidence in their ability to affect change and are making meaningful ‘wins’ towards achieving their aims on a broad range of issues such as; violence in a community, access to public space, fairness in the asylum system, and women’s inclusion and safety in leisure centres.

We know there is a huge demand for our work, so are working hard to grow our organisation in a sustainable way.

We know that growing our fundraising team is a key to achieving this so are looking for a Fundraising Coordinator to work with our Fundraising & Evaluation Manager to raise funding from the public and foundations to support our work.

You’ll start from a great position, with an experienced team, a well-structured database, good relationships with donors, and a strong evaluation framework.

This is not your usual fundraising role – Campaign Bootcamp is a young, nimble and fast-paced environment doing exciting work. Your focus will be in raising funds from foundations and in cultivating our growing public donation programme.

We are looking for candidates who are self-motivated, passionate, great communicators who are tenacious and have great attention to detail.

We’re a flexible and supportive employer and want to work with you to ensure this job fits around your life. This means we’re flexible if you want to work from home, work unusual hours, or something else.

We warmly welcome applications from people who are looking for a career change and are eager to learn.

Key aims of this role:

  • Research, write and submit and manage fundraising proposals to foundations
  • Support the development and implementation of a supporter engagement plan for individuals

Key responsibilities of this role include:

  • Researching new foundations and making applications to them.
  • Responsible for the implementation and development of the small trusts programme.
  • Contributing to the delivery of a supporter engagement programme, including creating content, responding to supporter enquiries and thanking.
  • Ensuring that donation and donor tracking and reporting systems are accurate, that electronic records are up to date.
  • Managing relations with current and prospective donors, including foundations and individuals
  • Preparing grant reports, updates and related material as needed, in close cooperation with the finance and programme delivery teams.

We’re interested in hearing from people who are interested in developing their fundraising skills as well as people looking for a career change.

Successful candidates will have some of the following skills or experience:

Essential

  • Excellent writing, editing, communication and interpersonal skills. We welcome applications from people who have copywriting or marketing experience in other industries.
  • Excellent organisational and administrative skills, including a systematic approach to maintaining complex relationships using a CRM/database.
  • Ability to work well under pressure and meet deadlines.

Desirable

  • Experience writing grant applications, proposals and reports.
  • Experience seeking fundraising leads, including conducting research, using fundraising databases and networking.
  • Financial literacy and an ability to understand, build and report on budgets.
  • Ability to work with colleagues dispersed across national and international offices. We make this work by using a range of cloud-based systems.
  • Awareness of how systemic injustice operates in our society, such as economic inequality, racism and heterosexism.
  • We are looking for someone who is excited to be part of team that is exploring how best to confront those issues both in the workplace and in the wider society.
