About us

Are you an ambitious, experienced fundraiser who wants to play an instrumental role in fighting UK and global corruption? If so, this new Development Manager position at Transparency International UK (TI-UK) could be perfect for you.

TI-UK is the country’s leading anti-corruption non-governmental organisation, and is part of a global coalition sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.

Our fight against corruption depends entirely on financial support from donors. We need to inspire more individuals, national and international trusts and foundations to partner with us and to help deliver vital change. A key part of our Fundraising and Communications team, we are looking for someone with a track record of securing large (five figure plus) gifts who is interested in the subject matter and excited by the prospect of shaping and leading our major giving programme, enabling TI-UK to take our impact to the next level.

Our team is newly formed, energetic and ambitious. We know we have a big task ahead of us to establish a more strategic approach to fundraising and our donor pipeline – but have strong hands-on support from our trustees, leadership team and some of our closest donors. We are collaborative, value one another’s expertise, encourage innovative thinking and want to ensure that working here is enjoyable and rewarding.


About the role

Until now our organisation has been largely dependent on a small number of institutional and major donors – despite being very well-networked and having global impact. As the Development Manager you will work closely with the Deputy Director of Fundraising and Communications to develop and deliver TI-UK’s major gifts strategy. Collaborating with senior staff in the UK and globally as well as our trustees, volunteers and closest donors, you will build our prospect pipeline, plan donor engagement and stewardship, create compelling proposals and develop lasting relationships with supporters.

In addition, you will have the support to use your creativity and experience to:

  • Help to establish and define the role of a fundraising advisory board who will advise on and support our strategy, plans and fundraising proposals
  • Develop, manage and grow relationships with a portfolio of trusts, foundations and donors
  • Create compelling fundraising propositions and content
  • Feed into and help develop wider fundraising strategy
  • Help shape our events and engagement plans
  • Work across the organisation to help build our fundraising capacity and capability


About you

To be successful in this role you will have: 

  • A track record of relevant, successful fundraising experience with trusts, foundations, corporate and individual donors – bringing in five figure plus donations
  • Excellent communication skills – with the ability to make complex information inspiring and engaging, tailoring content to different audiences
  • Strong relationship management skills – with experience of working with multiple stakeholders to deliver results
  • The ability to manage and prioritise multiple demands on your time
  • An interest in Transparency International and the world of anti-corruption
  • An interest in trends and developments in fundraising and giving
  • A good understanding of GDPR
  • No restrictions on your right to work in the UK


In exchange we will offer you:

  • A competitive salary
  • 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • Up to 5% contributory pension
  • Season ticket loan
  • Dedicated learning and development budget and support to develop in your role
  • A flexible, supportive and friendly working environment
