The Jurassic Coast Trust are looking for a skilled, experienced and passionate fundraiser, with a strong track record in developing the supporter base of non-profits, and a portfolio that included membership, businesses and HNW individuals. We are also looking for this person to be a strong generalist, working with the whole Programme Management Team and contributing to the growth of the organisation across the board, but with one eye always on our supporters.


The Jurassic Coast Trust is crafting a new organisation to respond to its new role of overall management of the Jurassic Coast, England’s natural World Heritage Site. We are working hard to create an organisation that can really deliver on the management of the Site, can achieve our own vision as a charity, and can build a sustainable financial future for the Trust, and for the World Heritage Site itself.

It therefore should be no surprise that we are looking to recruit a Supporter Development expert. A fundraiser, a planner, a lover of data and a powerful interpreter of insights, a skilful communicator and a talented marketer. Someone who can help us hit those challenging income targets and grow our supporter numbers in a meaningful way.

Moreover, we are looking to integrate that expertise into the central operations of our organisation, so while we are looking for an expert, we are also looking for a generalist, hence the job title Programme Manager.   We want someone who can take an objective and run with it, develop and manage projects, work collaboratively, deliver outcomes and evaluate progress with insight.

This is a very special and unique job, and as you can see from the Role Profile, we are looking for a very special person. Please do apply and tell us how you could bring us the skills, experience and talent we need.

The Role profile and Person Spec, and Letter are available for download below.  Please then send a CV and letter setting out why you want the job and how your meet the person specification, to We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest in the Jurassic Coast.
