This varied role is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious and experienced Finance Manager to join a growing charity at an exciting time, leading on the operational oversight of Resurgo’s financial management, and providing high level strategic input and advice to Heads of Department, the Senior Leadership Team and Resurgo’s Trustees, to develop the budget and business plan and ensure financial targets are met in accordance with our ambitous growth plans.

You will manage the day to day finance function of the charity, including administering book keeping systems, producing monthly management, income and expenditure reports, and performing bank/ balance sheet account reconciliations, and lead on the statutory annual group reporting process in conjunction with the external auditor.

This role will suit an individual who has an excellent eye for detail, but also an ability to see the bigger picture, as you will be responsible for ensuring operational sustainability and reporting on all aspects of the charity’s Finance function and financial modelling, whilst ensuring Resurgo’s finance function is fit for sustainable national growth and striving for continuous improvement of financial systems and processes to support this.

Donor Relations Manager

£30,000 – £35,000 depending on experience (between 3 and 5 days per week)

This is an exciting opportunity for a proactive self-starter with excellent organisational and people skills to join a vibrant and growing team within Resurgo. This role centres around managing a caseload of high net-worth individuals (major donors), keeping them updated on the work of Resurgo and informed of funding opportunities, through individual engagement and stewardship plans, communicating directly with key donors (including meeting regularly with them) and giving them the opportunity to see our work first hand.

As part of your role to support in developing the funding pipeline and major donor strategy, you will identify and contact new prospects, undertaking research where required, and work with high level volunteers including Trustees and other Resurgo teams such as Corporate Partnerships. Supporting the Senior Donor Relations Manager, you will have a good grasp of data-monitoring systems, using systems to capture information on donors and prospective donors to meet fundraising and communications objectives, and regularly monitor and report on income.

The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills and be a confident and charismatic individual, able to quickly gain the trust of others. This will be of key importance as you work closely with an external Events Manager and the Head of Philanthropy in planning and executing Resurgo’s annual fundraiser, where you have particular responsibility around managing guest relationships.

Your written communication skills will be equally inspiring, as you develop tailored compelling proposals and other materials for major donors, and you will be a capable project manager, supporting the Senior Donor Relations Manager to deliver a programme of strategic events to further engage both current donors and new prospects with Resurgo’s work.

As part of the Resurgo team, you will have the opportunity to see life-changing work first-hand, and at the same time be part of our strong coaching and feedback culture that allows our staff to thrive.
