Experienced Fundraiser/Bid Writer

We are looking for an experienced freelance Fundraiser/Bid Writer for a short-term mission to help us meeting our fundraising targets over the coming months.

Joining our strong team, you will support our current programme of work, focusing on attracting match funding for our existing projects, researching & writing bids around Junctures and our Un-Framed Think Tank.

You are also expected to look at our fundraising more strategically and advice us on a longer term funding approach, discussing future funding opportunities, particularly in terms of corporate funding/sponsorship, major donations & crowdfunding.

As 30 Bird’s work is expanding in the field of trans-disciplinarity and trans-culturalism, establishing new links with local Cambridge science organisations, we are looking for someone who has the confidence to step beyond the usual arts funding streams available & who could happily think outside the box.

• Excellent skills in building & sustaining relationships with funders.

• Good knowledge of funding landscape across Cambridgeshire, nationally and internationally.

• The successful candidate will have at least 3 years experience of working in a fundraising capacity, preferably within the arts.

The work is to be carried over a 3 months period, up until end of December 2017 with a possible extension.

Total freelance Fee: £2’000 including VAT; based on £125 daily fee; for a minimum of 8 funding applications to be submitted during the contract & the production of advisory funding documents (details to be agreed at contract stage)
