Summary:

Are you a graduate with excellent verbal and written communication skills who is passionate about helping others, highly motivated, and extremely organised? If so, Sparkle is looking for a Trusts and Foundations Officer to join their energetic team! This is a new position where you will play an integral part by increasing our income through grant applications to trusts and foundations, supported by an experienced Research and Development Officer, and working closely with our other fundraising and communication team members.

About Us:

Sparkle (South Wales) directly supports children and young people with disabilities and/or developmental difficulties, and their families, across Gwent. Sparkle is the charity partner of three Children’s Centres in Gwent, providing services from the Centres and community venues across five local authorities. The guiding principle for Sparkle is to ensure that children and young people with disabilities and/or developmental difficulties, and their families, are fully supported and able to participate in valued childhood experiences, with access to the same range of opportunities, life experiences, activities and community services as any other child and their family. We achieve this by running specialist leisure clubs, swimming lessons and cinema screenings for hundreds of children a week, and supporting 2,000 parents, carers and professionals via our Family Liaison Service. You can find out more at www.sparkleappeal.org.

Job Role:

This is a new role, and will complement our other team members who are engaged in identifying and writing grant applications, currently generating £180,000 per year. In line with our financial strategy for 2024-2025, we wish to build on this by increasing our income from Trusts and Foundations. This will include identifying new grant opportunities, and maximising income from grant-making trusts by writing compelling applications and developing positive partnerships with funders. You will be familiar with research and be an excellent report writer, utilising the Charity’s research and resources to create persuasive applications. You will be expected to provide a high level of donor care to the Trusts and Foundations, including site visits, submitting high quality applications and reports in a timely manner, delivering presentations as required, and maintaining excellent records. You will also help to secure ‘transformational gifts’ where required.
