Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is looking for a dedicated philanthropy and partnerships fundraiser to play a significant role in developing and maintaining an exciting and diverse portfolio at this key time of growth for the fundraising team.

  • Location: Hybrid / Barnet (min. of 3 days per week in the office)
  • Salary: Up to £39,769 (depending on experience)
  • Closing date: Rolling applications

Who we are

At Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, we are here to enable those we support to enjoy life as children, rather than as patients, as families, not just as carers. Partnering with London NHS Trusts, we have built a home, a community, and an expert team to make that difference.

We help babies, children, and young people with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions, and their families, make the most of every day. And we support those who die young to do so in as much comfort as possible, surrounded by family.

Our expert staff and trained volunteers provide clinical, emotional and practical support for families across north and central London and Herts Valley. We carefully adapt our support for every child and offer it wherever it is required – whether in their home, their community or at our state-of-the-art children’s hospice building, The Ark, in Barnet.

At present, we care for over 350 children who live with 132 different conditions. 78% have a disability and 55% are below the age of five. No child or condition is too complex. Babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions can be in our care for many years before they die, or transition to adult services.

We’ve been on a major upward trajectory in recent years, with more children being supported, more major hospitals being partnered with and more supporters donating. We’ve transformed from being an enthusiastic start-up delivering care in the community, to a serious player delivering major impact both in the community and at our state-of-the-art hospice building, The Ark, opened in 2019.

About the role

You will work across Philanthropy and Partnerships, which covers Grants, Trusts and Foundations and Major Donor and Corporate fundraising streams — it is pivotal to Noah’s Ark and typically accounts for around 75% of the charity’s overall income. In real terms, that is £3m of our £4.1m fundraising target for 2023-24.

This role feeds into our Major Donor and Corporate income streams. Philanthropy and Partnerships is a real area of expertise for Noah’s Ark, with much scope for further growth. Therefore, the successful candidate will enjoy opportunities to develop an exciting, multi-disciplinary portfolio and gain invaluable in-house training and support, working as part of a high-performing and highly supportive team, ready for its next exciting growth phase.

The Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager will work with the Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships to manage and develop the Major Donor, Mid-Value and Corporate pipelines, along with instrumental work with our Special Events Manager on high-value campaigns and events.

This includes our annual matched-funding campaign, The Winter Ball and the Noah’s Ark Golf Day – which last year raised £2.1m, £435,000 and £104,000 respectively.

The post-holder will be key in taking the Philanthropy and Partnerships programmes to the next level, securing new Corporate Partnerships, increasing multi-year gifts and supporting the Philanthropy and Partnerships Fundraiser to work to the same end with their portfolios.

Who we are looking for

Our ideal candidate will be a dedicated, organised and reliable individual. You will show determination and have an ability to read people and situations intuitively. You will be an exceptional and eloquent communicator, excellent at managing your time and a natural relationship builder.

You will ideally have experience working on the strategies and innovation behind the area/s of fundraising you have worked in and, therefore, have a growth mindset. You will be willing to liaise with colleagues across the fundraising team and wider charity to create the greatest outcomes for the children and families we support.
