Head of Fundraising
Salary: £50k- £55k depending on experience and qualifications
Location: Camden, London. Some flexible working considered.
Hours: Full-time, 35 hours per week, however, willing to consider part time (28 hours per week, pro rata £40-£44k) for the right candidate.
In the UK there are more than 1.3 million children and young people living with a disability and nearly four million children living in poverty.
We exist to improve the lives of these children and since 1949 Variety in the UK has raised more than £270m in pursuit of this objective.
Variety provides practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference, which includes grants for specialist equipment as well as accessible transport used by schools and other non-profit organisations across the UK. Our Great Days Out are legendary.

Variety, the Children’s Charity, seeks an enthusiastic individual, particularly with extensive experience in all areas of charity fundraising to lead our Fundraising Department.
The impact of the Covid pandemic on our event income has highlighted the importance of growing even further our other income streams, and our trustees have approved new investment in fundraising to strengthen the team and its performance.
We aim to double non - event fundraising income over the coming five years, create a sustainable fundraising programme for the long-term and bring about a culture change that sees non - event fundraising income take an equally important role alongside our event fundraising income.
The Head of Fundraising is a pivotal appointment for Variety in achieving that ambition.
The Head of Fundraising will join our leadership team and be responsible for delivering a transformation in our fundraising activity, performance, and positioning.
This is a hands-on role and the Head of Fundraising will lead by example, undertaking as well as directing the fundraising, and managing relationships with a pool of major donors and other key stakeholders. This will also include leadership and management of the fundraising team and its programmes (corporates, trusts and foundations, legacies, community, individual giving, virtual and online fundraising, London special fundraising events) and growth, and development and implementation of a fundraising strategy, and financial management.
