Work with us

We are recruiting our first Philanthropy Manager to ensure a sustainable income base for the future.


This is an exciting time to join the organisation and its new management team as we prepare to develop a new organisational strategy and lead the charity to fulfil its mission in the next few years. We are looking for an experienced trusts and foundations fundraiser who could also apply their skills to increase Rainbow Migration’s income through other channels, particularly individual giving. Rainbow Migration’s income was nearly £500,000 in 2020, and has ambitions to grow further. The Philanthropy Manager will inherit a profile of established and new trust and foundation relationships, and a modest but reliable individual supporter base, both of which have significant potential for growth.


You will:

  • Develop and deliver a fundraising strategy
  • Fundraise from trusts and foundations
  • Increase income from individual giving.
