Head of Programmes Fundraising - trusts and statutory
Full-time or 0.8fte
Bristol with hybrid working
Soil Association is the charity that digs deeper to transform the way we eat, farm and care for our natural world.
Our vision is good food for all, produced with care for the natural world and our organic values mean we care about human health, nature, soil, water, forests, and animal welfare. We are in a unique position to bring together farmers and scientists, doctors and teachers, chefs and foresters to transform the way we eat, farm and care for the natural world. And we work with many friends and partners to persuade politicians to develop farming and food policies that put the nations health first.
Our grow-back-better manifesto has two major strategic themes that align with our vision for the future:
- Good food for all - a healthy, thriving population: buying, growing, cooking and eating good food.
- Farming for the future - a thriving landscape, farmed in harmony with nature providing good food and livelihoods.
And underpinning the work we do as a charity is Soil Association Certification's impact as a certifier; we have the privilege of working with over 6,000 businesses who live our values, and turn the theory into practice.
As Head of Programmes Fundraising you will hold lead responsibility for creating and implementing a strategy to maximise income from charitable trusts, statutory funders and companies.
We are seeking someone with the track record in developing compelling funding propositions to potential organisational and institutional donors who can partner with us long-term to effect the systems change that is ultimately necessary if we are going to achieve shared ambitions for healthy eating and sustainable food production that conserves rather than exploits the worlds resources.
