Rainbow Migration, the leading UK charity supporting LGBTQI+ people through the asylum and immigration system, is recruiting its first Philanthropy Manager to ensure a sustainable income base for the future.

Founded in 1993, Rainbow Migration has recently been through a period of rapid growth. This is an exciting time to join the organisation and its new management team as we prepare to develop a new organisational strategy and lead the charity to fulfil its mission in the next few years. We are looking for a skilled writer with the ability to build stakeholder relationships who could increase Rainbow Migration’s income from trusts and foundations and individual giving. Rainbow Migration’s income was nearly £500,000 in 2020, and has ambitions to grow further. The Philanthropy Manager will inherit a profile of established and new trust and foundation relationships, and a modest but reliable individual supporter base, both of which have significant potential for growth.

You will:

  • Develop and deliver a fundraising strategy
  • Fundraise from trusts and foundations
  • Increase income from individual giving.

At Rainbow Migration, we don’t just accept difference – we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. We consider all qualified applicants, consistent with any legal requirements.

We welcome applications from candidates with lived experience of going through the UK asylum or immigration system and people of colour who are currently underrepresented among our staff. We will also interview all disabled applicants who meet the necessary criteria for this vacancy.

Owing to the nature of the work, the successful applicant will be required at the point of conditional job offer to disclose all unspent criminal records and subsequently to undergo a basic DBS check. See our website for more information.

Contract type: Permanent

Hours: Full-time (35 hours per week), part-time or job share. Please state in your application what hours you are looking to work. Occasional evening work is required, and possibly at weekends, but with plenty of notice. Rainbow Migration encourages staff to maintain a good work life balance and has a TOIL system in place.

Salary: £34,910 plus statutory employer’s pension contribution with potential annual step increases up to £38,892 (pro rata if working part time), plus statutory employer’s pension contribution. In addition to an annual step increase, the trustees consider giving a separate inflationary increase every April.

Location: Remote or from Rainbow Migration’s offices in central London. The successful candidate could work from anywhere in the UK but would be expected to occasionally travel to London and other parts of the country for meetings and events. At the time of posting this advert, all Rainbow Migration staff are working from home due to Covid-19.  

Annual leave: 25 days per year pro rata rising after 24 months by 1 day after each year of service to maximum of 28 days per year (pro rata if working part-time).

Closing date: Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Interview date: Interviews will be scheduled on an ongoing basis in response to applications received.
