Head of Trusts & Major Donors


About our organisation

The Soil Association’s vision is a world with good health, in balance with nature and a safe climate restored for all. We want everyone to understand the relationship between the health of the soil, plants, animals and people.

We campaign for change, we support farming innovation, we serve healthy food in communities, we support and grow the organic market, and we protect forests. We couldn't do any of this without our supporters, partners, donors and dedicated staff. We make a difference in the world where it’s needed the most.

You will lead the Trust and Major Donor teams, and work with the Executive Team, to fundraise for a range of diverse and inspiring projects.

This is an exciting time to join a committed team who are focused on deepening relationships with our current funders and finding new trusts and major donors to support our work.

You will have proven experience of developing and delivering a strategy to grow income and will enjoy leading a busy team and successfully securing significant major donations. You will have the skills to turn complex programmes and projects into compelling proposals.
