We act because everyone relies on the ocean to survive - from the air we breathe to the food we eat. We have ambitious plans to drive political, cultural and social change for healthy seas and coasts that support abundant marine wildlife, sustain livelihoods and provide enjoyment for all.

To make these plans happen we need to grow our income from existing and new sources – if you’re a successful and motivated Trust & Grants Manager, you can play a key part in the continuation of this important work with MCS.

This is an ideal role for someone with the aptitude for business development and account management in a not-for-profit or commercial setting, expertly nurturing our important relationships with charitable trusts and foundations. Alongside the Head of Fundraising, you will have the opportunity to input your ideas for creatively developing and implementing our Trusts and Grants fundraising strategy, and then get to be hands-on in writing compelling funding applications for existing and new grant donors. Demonstrating the highest levels of customer service, you will also manage our valuable relationships with our current grant givers and identify new trusts and foundations in order to grow our income.

As a self-starter, you’ll be confident in your ability to take a proactive approach when managing a varied and busy workload.
