Senior Head of Philanthropy & Partnerships


17th July 2022




Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice helps babies, children and young people who are seriously unwell,
and their families, make the most of every day. The charity aspires to become a centre of clinical
excellence for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.


We’ve been on a major upward trajectory in recent years, with more children being supported,
more major hospitals being partnered with and more supporters donating. We’ve transformed
from being an enthusiastic start-up delivering care in the community, to a serious player delivering
major impact both in the community and at our state-of-the-art hospice building, The Ark, opened
in 2019.


Philanthropy & Partnerships, which covers both Major Donor and Corporate fundraising streams, is
pivotal to Noah’s Ark – typically accounting for around 50% of the charity’s overall income. This is
an area of real expertise for Noah’s Ark, with much scope for further growth. The successful
candidate will therefore enjoy opportunities to develop their portfolios and gain invaluable in-
house training and support, working as part of a high-performing and super supportive team,
ready for its next exciting growth phase.


The Philanthropy & Partnerships Manager will line manage a new Philanthropy & Partnerships
Fundraiser, and will work closely with the Senior Head of Philanthropy & Partnerships to manage
and develop the Major Donor, Mid-Value and Corporate pipelines, along with instrumental work
on high-value campaigns and events. This includes our annual matched-funding campaign and
The Winter Ball – which last year raised £2.1m and £415,000 respectively. The post-holder will be key
in taking the Philanthropy programme to the next level, securing new Corporate Partnerships,
increasing multi-year gifts and supporting the new Philanthropy & Partnerships Fundraiser to work
to the same end with their portfolios.




You will be a dedicated, organised and reliable individual. You will show determination and have
an ability to read people and situations intuitively. An exceptional and eloquent communicator,
excellent at managing your time and a natural relationship builder.
At this stage in your career, we would not expect you to have high levels of knowledge and
experience in both fundraising streams. We encourage you to apply if you consider yourself to
have an emphatically successful grounding in Major Donor or Corporate fundraising, and you’re
up-and-coming manager of people, ready to step into management in a nurturing environment.
