Are you a personable, organised and dedicated researcher looking to contribute in a major way to the success of a fundraising team? Are you looking for a flexible, part-time role in which no two days are the same and you can work across a variety of fundraising streams? If so, then this is the role for you! We are looking for a Research Assistant to grow our existing close knit and innovative team.

As Research Assistant, you will support the Trusts and Foundations and Corporate Partnerships fundraising teams, researching new funding opportunities to maximise income. You will work with both teams to plan and develop strategy for engaging new donors, as well as leading on writing and submitting applications for trusts and corporate foundations at 4-figure level.

We’re looking for someone who is meticulous and thorough with a positive approach to work. You will have existing experience of conducting prospect research, preferably in a fundraising environment, and have an appreciation for the work of Richard House.

This is a truly flexible role and we are willing to discuss options around working patterns. Currently the team is working from home and we are looking to move to hybrid home/office working from the autumn.
