We are all facing a crisis for our natural world. Cumbria Wildlife Trust wants both wildlife and people to be able to benefit from a healthy environment. We’re restoring broken ecosystems and returning missing species. We are putting nature's recovery at the heart of everything we do.

Our fundraising team is dynamic and adaptable and we are looking for a highly effective fundraiser who can complement the existing team by being flexible to using their skills and energies to meet the challenges of multiple priorities.  You will be playing to your strengths and benefitting from the strengths of others in our team.

Our income comes primarily from our wonderfully supportive membership, from grants, donations and legacies.  We are currently exploring how our fundraising can meet the challenges of our work being more financially sustainable going forward.  We have been successful in introducing a number of new initiatives.  We are now seeking an energetic forward thinker to complement our existing staff team, so we can work together to achieve our potential.

The successful candidate will ideally have previous fundraising experience, but we will also consider candidates who can demonstrate that they have transferable skills from other sectors. You should be self-reliant, resilient and have excellent verbal, written, social media and people skills.

If you feel you meet some of the criteria but not all, we really hope you'll enquire and learn more. There is some flexibility in this role in terms of the fundraising activities you will undertake, adapting to your skill set.

Based at Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s Offices, Plumgarths, Crook Road, Kendal, Cumbria, LA8 8LX or Gosling Sike, Houghton, Carlisle CA3 0LD. Cumbria Wildlife Trust adopts flexible working practices.  Some of the duties of this post may be capable of being performed remotely by mutual agreement.
