Thistle’s ambition is for a world of inclusion, free of isolation and loneliness - where a health crisis does not mean a life crisis. Working alongside the Head of Fundraising, the Trusts and Foundations Manager will play a crucial role in making this ambition a reality for people in Scotland living with the devastating diagnosis of a long-term health condition.
The main purpose of the role is to secure transformational income from charitable Grants, Trusts, Foundations and statutory bodies to sustain and grow Thistle’s Health and Wellbeing service. You will lead on and develop a funding pipeline, the writing of applications, co-ordinate reporting requirements in addition to liaising with funding partners and other key stakeholders.
If you are an experienced, creative and passionate person who wants to make a positive difference to those we support, staff and others who come into contact with Thistle, then we would love to hear from you.
Who we are
Thistle is a pioneering Scottish charity supporting people with disabilities, long-term health conditions and those facing challenging life situations to live well – on their terms. We focus on the person, not their condition, and tailor our support to their unique hopes.
It is an exciting time to join Thistle as we expand our health and wellbeing service nationally, with fundraising being crucial to achieving this ambition.
Are you passionate about writing impactful funding applications, developing meaningful relationships and making a positive difference to the lives of others?
As Thistle’s Trusts and Foundations Fundraising Manager, you will be responsible for securing ambitious funding targets that will provide vital support to people living with long-term health conditions in Scotland. You will work closely with our service delivery teams, people we support and a variety of stakeholders.
What is most important to us is a passion for people and making a difference, excellent attention to detail, and the enthusiasm and ability to think innovatively and bring new and creative ideas.
If this is something that excites you, then we want to hear from you.
