Shelter have existed since 1968 to fight and relentlessly campaign for all those whose lives are blighted by the loss of their home. Each year they give information, support, and advice to millions of people facing homelessness or experiencing bad housing situations.

Every day, Shelter Scotland strive to give people struggling with bad housing or homelessness the help they need and have a clear vision of a safe, secure, affordable home for everyone. In addition, it is a campaigning organisation with a strong voice. It has championed young people’s rights, held letting agents to account when they have illegally charged fees, lead the charge in the fight against the so called “bedroom tax” and worked closely with Police Scotland to end illegal evictions.

The need is great and growing. The charity needs to drive its income to help meet this challenge and is now looking for an experienced Trusts and Foundations Manager to hit the ground running. You will need to be excellent at cultivating and stewarding relationships with stakeholders both internally and externally and be confident taking on a portfolio of funders of various sizes and at different stages of engagement. Your communications skills will be second to none with you practised and perfect at making a strong pitch or case for support.

You will be expected to be a mature professional who is self-motivated and driven to achieve set targets. Ideally, you will show how you have grown income through a tenacious, strategic, and creative approach.

If you would like to work for one of the biggest brands in the third sector, have a passion for Shelter’s work and are an experienced, competent Trusts and Foundations Manager with 1-2 years management experience then please consider this as your next career move.
