Join Our Team

Development Manager

Start date: ASAP

We are seeking a Development Manager with experience of securing six-figure income from partners, sponsors and donors to join the 1851 Trust team.  You will develop the 1851 Trust’s annual and 3-year fundraising strategy and will be responsible for securing income that will help fund the Trust’s ambitious growth plans. 


Join our volunteer community at The 1851 Trust, where you can help young people discover the power of professional sailing and excite more young people about opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Volunteer roles range from supporting:

  • The Education team during school visits at our Education space in Portsmouth.
  • Our #NextGeneration roadshows around the country and other small events.

Volunteering opportunities are open to anyone aged 16 and over – all you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in! A sailing, teaching or STEM background is desirable but not essential.

Find out more by contacting or call us on: 01489 587 852.
