About the role

Department: Income Generation (Fundraising)
Reports to: Head of Philanthropic Partnerships


The Royal Free Charity supports all Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust patients and staff to make today feel better and to enable them to have the best experience. We do this through funding patient services, as well as cutting-edge research and equipment.

The aim of the Fundraising Department is to generate income from new and existing supporters, whilst giving our supporters the best experience possible. Our fundraising directorate is split into three main areas: Individual Giving, Community Fundraising, and Philanthropic Partnerships.

The objectives of this post are:

  • To support the strategic direction and lead the operational delivery of philanthropy team prospect research
  • To ensure team operations are efficient and enable excellent supporter care and relationship development

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to ongoing team strategy development and work with the Head of Philanthropic Partnerships and Trusts Manager (to be recruited in the coming months) to develop a plan to ensure a strong pipeline of major donor, trust and corporate prospects is in place.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for a Prospect Research & Operations Manager with significant research function experience, ideally gained in not-for-profit, with a proven track record delivering prospect research that has contributed to major donor, trust, and corporate gift solicitations resulting in five-figure+ gifts. Your ability to independently research projects, identify opportunities and connections that enable meaningful and long-term relationships is also essential.

Given the nature of this role, we seek someone with strong negotiation and influencing skills who will provide excellent supporter care, empathise and support staff positively, and build supportive and trusting relationships with internal and external stakeholders. You will also have excellent communication skills, both verbally and written, with a keen eye for detail and experience in creating research briefs, prospect profiles, internal briefings or other key documents.

You will be a highly-motivated, pro-active person that will show a strong commitment to our values and who can contribute to nurturing a team spirit that enables development and implementation of campaigns, strategies and plans across Income Generation.
