Role

BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with Shelter in their search for a Senior Philanthropy Manager (Scotland).

Scotland is in the midst of a housing crisis. Every 18 minutes, a household is assessed as becoming homeless. Where do they turn to?

Shelter has been providing advice and practical support to people in this plight for the past 50 years. To date, it has helped 500,000 Scots.

In addition, it’s a campaigning organisation with a strong voice. It has championed young people’s rights, held letting agents to account when they have illegally charged fees, lead the charge in the fight against the so called “bedroom tax” and worked closely with Police Scotland to end illegal evictions.

The need is great and growing. The charity needs to boost its income to help meet this challenge and is now looking for a Senior Philanthropy Manager to engage with potential major donors who have the empathy and the ability to make a significant impact. You will need to be excellent at cultivating and stewarding relationships worth 6 figures or more while evidencing strong stakeholder management skills, both internally and externally. Your communications skills will be second to none with you practised and perfect at making a strong pitch or case for support.

You will be expected to be a mature professional who is self motivated and driven to achieve set targets. Ideally, you will show how you have grown income through a tenacious, strategic and creative approach.

If you would like to work for one of the biggest brands in the third sector, have a passion for Shelter’s work and are experienced at managing or brokering high value relationships, then please consider this as your next career move. This role is open to people from the private and public as well as third sector.
