Work with us

Key Supporter Relationship Manager

The Key Supporter Relationship Manager is an exciting and instrumental role at the Youth Adventure Trust. As a small charity, we put relationships at the heart of our fundraising plan and we pride ourselves on our long-term engagement with supporters.

Working closely with the Director of Fundraising, the Key Supporter Relationship Manager will be responsible for all of our individual and community fundraising activities. They will develop our new major donor and regular giving income streams, recruit and support our ‘Team 25’ fundraisers, engage local community fundraising groups and look after our ambassadors. The role is in its infancy and there is scope to develop, build and structure this income stream.

The Key Supporter Relationship Manager will be responsible for the good stewardship of our existing supporters as well as increasing our networks of individual supporters to maximise their engagement with the charity and the level of income raised from this group. The post-holder will be a people person and understand instinctively how to develop and maintain high level relationships with the charity’s key supporters as well as a proven track record of doing this in practice. The role is varied and will require key skills and experience in relationship management, major donor fundraising, event management, organisation and communication.

In addition, the Key Supporters Relationship Manager will play an important role in delivering our ambitious plan to double the charity’s income within the next five years in order to allow us to simultaneously improve our existing service and increase our capacity to help more vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.

Challenge Event Volunteers

Our fundraising events offer a bespoke opportunity to companies and the general public to challenge themselves, and in doing so raise essential funds for the charity.  Challenge Event Volunteers are involved in a range of duties over a challenge event weekend which may include marshalling, cheering teams on, helping to resolve problems and celebrating the achievements of each and every participant.
