We are seeking a talented and dedicated fundraising professional to join us as Development Manager at an important time of strategic growth.

Initially, the post-holder will take responsibility for fundraising for our ongoing expansion project. A key part of the role is building relationships with friends of the school, cultivating high-net-worth individuals and corporate partnerships, and applying to trusts and foundations. The Development Manager will be responsible for seeing the process through, from identification and cultivation to securing a donation.

As the role develops, there will be the opportunity to actively grow the fundraising and development function looking at regular and legacy giving from across the school’s supporters.

This is an exciting time to join The Unicorn School. In December 2023, we exchanged contracts on a second building directly opposite our current school. This site has the capacity for us to double in size, supporting an additional 120 children. The site will also enable us to offer a post-16, life skills provision for the first time.
