A great opportunity for a passionate Trust Fundraiser to join our exciting and dynamic team in beautiful countryside and be part of a growing national charity, transforming the lives of young people. We’re looking for someone who enjoys writing persuasive and clear fundraising proposals, and is comfortable with having a mixed portfolio of funding partners to manage.
You can be based at our inaugural farm and HQ in Box, Wiltshire, or at any of our other sites in East Sussex, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire or Yorkshire.
Working at Jamie’s Farm
Whether you are part of our delivery team directly working with young people, or a member of HQ working behind the scenes, a day at Jamie’s Farm is never the same as the next. Whatever your role, you will be helping disadvantaged young people to thrive at school and beyond.
Our values guide everything we do at Jamie’s Farm. We seek to ensure that even as the charity grows, we are able to maintain the unique culture that we have established across our farms – a culture that is based on an optimistic can-do spirit, and which supports and challenges us to be the best of ourselves.
Training and Development
Jamie’s Farm is committed to providing Continued Professional Development for all its staff, with internal and external training. We run interim and annual reviews to support with personal and professional growth, as well as regular management check-ins. We regularly get all our farm teams together to feed into the future of the charity, the highlight being our our Annual Away Days in the Brecon Beacons.
Diversity and Inclusion
We celebrate diversity and make inclusion part of what we do every day. Our aim is for every staff and volunteer to bring their true self to work and are individually supported to ensure that the positive organisational culture we desire, is sustained.
Environment and Well-being
Our farms are all surrounded by stunning countryside. Whether you work in the office or with our delivery teams, you can reap the benefits of this beautiful, homely environment. The nature of the work is challenging and so we ensure dedicated time is provided weekly for teams to debrief and reflect together, as well as quarterly external supervision.
What our staff say
“It’s a very varied job.…
…I once did a little audit of my day and it involved fixing a Land Rover, cleaning up a bit of sick from a young person, moving some cows, feeding some sheep, running a therapeutic meeting – it can be literally anything, a beautiful variety.”
“It’s been a joy and a privilege to join the special community at Jamie’s Farm…
…When I read about the charity, I thought “wow, what an organisation”. Now to be part of it and doing something good for these young people, watching them evolve and develop through the week with us, is amazing and it’s real; being a part of that is the most rewarding thing for me.”
“Working for Jamie’s Farm feels like being part of a big family…
…it’s different to any job I’ve had before. I love being surrounded by the farm and being so close to the cause that we in the HQ team are working to support. Stopping for lunch together as a team is a real highlight.”
