Full-time Positions

Fundraising Manager

Salary: £26,790

Hours: 37 hours per week

Location: Two campus-based union sites near Holborn, London

Term: Permanent role


Job description

Job specification


We are two of the most exciting charities in our sector with incredible members who inspire and challenge the work we deliver. The University of the Arts London Students’ Union (SUARTS) and The London School of Economics and Political Science Students’ Union (LSESU) are engaged in a unique collaboration meaning you would split your time across the two organisations and deliver a service for two very distinct bodies of students.


We are looking for a Fundraising Manager to generate income through a broad range of fundraising activity. You will build on existing relationships with funders and identify new funds that allow both Unions to expand their activity and grow existing work. Our Unions offer a range of activities and opportunities for our members and this role will find suitable funders and partners to raise financial support for the work we do. This will include gaining sponsorship for events, securing advertising across our many digital and print platforms and writing successful bids to charitable trusts.


A large part of this role is to generate income through our freshers fairs. These large scale events are the single biggest opportunity for generating income during the academic year and are a chance for us to make a great first impression on the new student intake. You will identify relevant and exciting organisations to attend the fairs and secure their attendance.


This is a challenging and unique organisation to fundraise for and we are looking for a tenacious, creative and driven individual to take our income to the next level. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of income generation across a range of income streams. You will understand the funding challenges that third sector organisations face, and have experience in proactively combatting these challenges. We are looking for someone with excellent written and verbal communication skills who will be able to represent SUARTS and LSESU positively and professionally to a range of clients and partners. You will be passionate about generating income with the ability to work within a democratic, student-led environment.


At SUARTS and LSESU we are committed to learning and development and as such will support the successful candidate to develop within the role. We welcome applications from both the commercial and third sector.


If you wish to informally discuss the role, please get in touch with Denise Heard, Head of Development at to arrange a chat.


Closing date: 9am, Tuesday 3rd March

Interviews: Thursday 12th March
