You will be leading on the relaunch of our main supporter scheme, devising public fundraising appeals, planning supporter events and cultivating donors to the highest giving level, managing our work with our fundraising volunteers as well as grant applications and funding bids.

About us
Earth Trust is an environmental learning charity with 40 years’ experience in caring for and inspiring others with green spaces. We believe that connection to nature can catalyse action to protect the environment, as well as provide vital mental and physical wellbeing benefits for people.

Together with our supporters, Earth Trust is the guardian of some extremely special and inspiring places full of nature and heritage. We care for 500 hectares of woodland, farmland, wildflower meadows and wetlands, which receive 200,000 visits a year.

We use these amazing places to engage and inspire people and to demonstrate nature-based solutions to climate, biodiversity and public health crises, that we hope others will take and use elsewhere. We work to champion access to green space for everyone, deepen engagement with nature, and share our learnings about managing land in a way that is gentle on the earth.

Specifically, you will work across a variety of income streams to attract and deepen our supporter relationships, providing excellent stewardship throughout their supporter journey.

In line with these activities, you will manage an annual public fundraising calendar to support oversight of campaigns from concept to implementation and post-appeal analysis.
