The Anne Frank Trust UK is an education charity that envisages a society safe from prejudice and discrimination. Drawing on the power of Anne’s life and diary in a contemporary context we educate young people about the damage prejudice and hateful attitudes cause and empower them with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to challenge bullying and harmful attitudes.
In 2016 we worked with more than 40,000 individuals in schools, alternative provision units, prisons and community venues across the UK, encouraging people to combat hatred and embrace positive attitudes, responsibility and respect for others. The impact of our work has been recognised by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and by the Metropolitan Police, with whom we have just announced a new working partnership. We are also identified as a flagship project in the Government’s Hate Crime Action Plan.
The Trust is on the cusp of significant expansion backed by a growth-oriented fundraising development plan and we’re looking for a dynamic, creative and hard-working individual to join our small team of dedicated professional fundraisers. We work in a fast-paced, but friendly and supportive environment, where you can be sure that your contribution will have a real impact on the charity’s ability to deliver its vital work to thousands of young people.
Working with the Grants Manager and as a member of the fundraising team the Grants Officer will play a pivotal role in helping the Trust achieve its three-year plan to sustainably grow gross income from £1.3m to £2m p.a. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and managing a portfolio of relationships with grant giving bodies (Statutory, Lottery and Trusts & Foundations); generating and managing income from existing and new projects and funders; and delivering on KPIs and targets in relation to grant income streams.
