Pipeline Scout and Relations Manager

The Development Team is responsible for establishing and stewarding relationships with high net worth-individuals, Corporates, Trusts & Foundations and generating income from them. The team consists of a Head of Development, a Pipeline Scout and Relations Manager, a Trust Fundraiser and a Fundraising & Communications Officer.  The team is also supported by an experienced and committed Development Board, led by an outstanding Chair.

We have excellent relationships with our existing supporters, but to meet our ambitions we must grow our prospect pipeline and diversify our supporter base with a greater focus on programme and organisational development, and transformational and strategic funding (including multi-year funding).

In the words of our CEO, Honor Wilson-Fletcher…

“As we start the planned hand-over and recruitment for a successor to our current Chair of the Board of Trustees, who steps down at our AGM next spring after an amazing period of leadership, we’re also recruiting key roles in the team to deliver our new strategy (A Wild Future), like a Pipeline Scout. I want to sound an optimistic note – We are supported in every possible and practical way by members of our community. With our values, enterprise and unstoppable drive, anything is possible. Our motto is, after all, Find Your Fire.

The Pipeline Scout and Relations Manager role is focused on establishing and developing a prospect pipeline, building relationships with HNW-individuals, creating compelling asks to secure gifts of 5-figures+, and providing brilliant stewardship.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as and when received, so please apply as soon as possible.

Volunteer Expedition Leaders

Our Leaders are a diverse bunch but what they all share is a commitment to challenging and supporting our Young Explorers, to sensitively testing their boundaries and to helping them develop key life skills such as teamwork, problem-solving and adaptability, which in turn allow self-confidence to flourish.

Each expedition is different, and some require certain skills or experience due to the terrain, the climate, the type of transport used and in some cases, the specific group of young people who are going on the expedition. In all roles, preference will be given to those with direct relevant experience although we will provide comprehensive training if you’re selected. If you have a love of nature and adventure, and the ability or potential to inspire, motivate, and encourage young people, we’d love to hear from you.

Explorer Ambassadors

Joining an expedition is a big step for many young people.

Can you remember what it was like to take that first step? Do you remember some of the worries that you had along the journey to expedition? Can you articulate the benefits of joining a British Exploring Society expedition and what you took away from the experience?

British Exploring Society are looking for enthusiastic Members who went on expedition from 2018 onwards to enhance our social media presence, to make creative content or share your experience on expedition with other young people. If you have a passion for the outdoors and are enthusiastic about using your platform, creative ideas or your story to encourage and inspire more young people about the benefits of adventurous learning then we would like to hear from you.
