Traidcraft Exchange works for trade and climate justice. In South Asia and East Africa, we support farmers, workers and artisans to benefit from more sustainable and equitable trade, and in the UK we advocate and campaign for changes to business practices and government policy.
It is an exciting time to join our organisation. Following a strategic review, we are embarking on a process of change to shift more power to groups in the global south, and to rethink the way we work in the UK. We are committed to equality and providing a diverse and inclusive workplace. We welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, including people with disabilities and individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
About the role

Your role will be to identify, secure and maintain funding partnerships predominantly with trusts and foundations for our new portfolios and existing programmes. The role will also coordinate the team, carrying out administrative and other team support functions.
You will have experience in trust and foundation fundraising, with evidence of having stewarded grants as well as some success of securing 4-figure grants.

You will know your way around a CRM database and appreciate the importance of keeping accurate records. The team will rely on you to keep us organised and we may call on you to assist us with a variety of tasks. Teamwork is very important, but at the same time we need you to be able to work independently.
