Fundraising Officer

Peak District National Park Foundation

We are seeking a Fundraising Officer to join the Foundation during an exciting period of
growth. You will work as part of a small team to deliver our fundraising strategy – we aim to
grow fundraised income to £1 million annually by 2027 to fund vital work across the Peak
District. This is a key role within the Foundation and is a great opportunity for someone
wanting to build experience across all areas of fundraising, as well as grant-making.

About Us 

The Peak District is the UK’s oldest National Park and has a special place in so many people’s
hearts. But the Park is in crisis. We need to restore threatened habitats, create bigger and
better homes for wildlife, protect our cultural heritage and inspire the next generation of
nature champions to protect the park in the future. The reality of climate change means that
repairing our natural landscapes is more important and urgent than ever.

The Peak District Foundation is an independent charity which works to create a Peak District
which is thriving for nature and people and is protected for future generations. We are
building a community of supporters who are working with us to protect and improve the Peak
District for everyone, forever.

About the Role

This role is an opportunity to develop your fundraising skills and gain experience across a
broad range of incomes streams while also providing essential administrative support across our
small charity. You will support the Director and Fundraising Manager with fundraising from
grant makers, individual donors and corporate partnerships. You will already have strong
digital skills and will take the lead on developing our digital fundraising through expanding
the effectiveness and reach of our social media. You will oversee the administration of our
Peak Partners scheme for businesses and lead on signing up new bronze and silver level
partners. You will also lead on community fundraising – supporting individuals and groups who
want to fundraise for the Foundation. The role will also include helping to distribute
much-needed grants to projects across the National Park.

This role would be ideally suited to someone with a digital communications background who wants
to develop skills in fundraising, or an individual with some fundraising or sales experience
who is looking to move into the environmental sector. You will be a confident communicator and
willing to muck in and be a key part of our small friendly team. 

The role is advertised as full time, but we are open to part-time applicants (see job
pack for further details).
