Full Description

BACKGROUND: Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. We are driven by the fundamental belief that homelessness is wrong. Wrong because it is a failure of society that creates victims out of ordinary people and robs them of their potential. Wrong because it can be prevented, it can be solved but is allowed to continue and in doing so, undermines society.

Focus Ireland has developed an ambitious strategy to - prevent homelessness ever occurring for as many people as possible, to provide effective support and solutions to homeless for those who do become homeless.

They are now seeking a driven Philanthropy Manager to join their passionate fundraising team and lead on the development of major gifts, trusts and foundations, and legacies.

THE ROLE: This role will develop and profile key Major Donors, Mid-Level donors, Trust and Foundations, and Legacy prospects and coordinate their stewardship and prospect management along a planned activity calendar for each target. This role will work closely with the Partnership and Philanthropy Manager, Fundraising Director and CEO office.

This role requires professional sales or development experience, networking skills, proven project management and relationship development successes, and excellent application writing and proposal development skills with strong attention to detail.

If you’re an ambitious, diligent, articulate fundraiser with proven leadership abilities and exceptional relationship management skills, we’d love to hear from you!
