Introduction to the TutorMate Programme

Are you looking for a flexible, part-time role that enables you to use your fundraising skills to have a direct impact on the lives of disadvantaged children? Are you creative, dynamic and focused on results?

36% of children from disadvantaged backgrounds leave primary school in England each year unable to read to the expected standard. Innovations for Learning (IFL) is a charity focused on using technology to close this literacy gap through a unique online reading support programme called TutorMate. Many children fall behind with reading simply because they lack the opportunity to practise. TutorMate addresses this problem by using a bespoke internet platform to pair volunteer tutors from corporate organisations with struggling pupils.

IFL is seeking a highly motivated, proactive Trusts and Foundations Fundraiser to create creative, compelling and impactful bids. You’ll be a passionate, entrepreneurial fundraising professional who can get ‘under the skin’ of our work and are keen to make your mark in a fast-growing organisation.

You will develop and manage a funding pipeline by investing in thorough research and relationship cultivation, and you will thrive in working with funders and partners on a day-to-day basis. You’ll be a self-starter and have high standards for yourself and others.

Reporting directly to the Executive Director, you will generate income from new and existing trusts and foundations to fund 25 % of the work of the charity (2022-23 = £162k target).

This role is ideal for someone home-based with the ability to travel to occasional meetings. Working days can be arranged flexibly and are part time 3-4 days per week.

For a brief introduction to the TutorMate programme please watch the video above.

Applicants are asked to provide a current CV and a covering letter (2 pages maximum) outlining evidence against the essential criteria in the job description. Please include a description of a successful partnership or relationship that you’ve managed in your career and reflect on what made it successful and how you were able to develop the relationship over time. Applications that do not meet these criteria will not be considered.

The closing date is midnight on Sunday June 5th.

As a charity that values and celebrates people's diversity and champions opportunities for all young people, we are keen to receive applications from people who have experienced disadvantage and from those who are from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities who are currently underrepresented in the organisation. We believe that a diverse organisation is one that is more innovative, more creative and gets better results.
