Partnerships Executive (Trusts and Foundations)

Job Description


School-Home Support gets children and young people into school, ready to learn. We have been working for over 30 years, with children, families and schools to break the long-term cycle of deprivation. What starts as poor school attendance can become low educational attainment, anti social behaviour, crime, low paid or no job – generation after generation. SHS makes a real difference and we are passionate about the role education plays in improving life chances for disadvantaged children and young people.

The fundraising team at SHS is small and hard working. Our contribution this year will be over £2.5 million to the charity. Trusts and Foundations should account for approximately £1.5m of this. COVID-19 has put education and related inequalities squarely on the agenda. Our services are never more needed and we need to further increase income to support more children and families. Building on recent Trusts and Foundations fundraising successes we are now looking for a confident, enthusiastic and focused individual to join our friendly team. The role will suit someone who is looking to make an impact and who can build on School-Home Support’s solid reputation to grow our income from Trusts.
