Job description

Senior Fundraising Manager (Head of Fundraising)

  • Based in Milton Keynes with flexibility to work from home
  • Fixed term 18-month contract, 1 March 2021-31 Aug 2022, with possibility of longer-term employment

These are exciting times to join the Winter Night Shelter Milton Keynes. We are looking to move from having a sole fundraiser to develop a new fundraising team as we grow our operations and expand our charitable objectives to meet growing need.

We are looking for a motivated individual to lead our fundraising team to manage the fundraising for the charity’s regular annual income (c.£300k pa) and lead a capital fundraising campaign into its next phase (c.£1.1m over the contract term) to enable the establishment of a new day centre for people who are vulnerably housed.

This role brings with it the opportunity to have a direct and lasting impact on the long-term landscape of provision for the homeless and vulnerable in Milton Keynes. The income generated under this leadership role will enable us as a charity to continue to help rough sleepers at their point of crisis, but will also enable us to support people to maintain their tenancies and provide help to those who may be on a pathway to homelessness, thus having a direct impact on homelessness prevention.

We have been operating to support homeless people in crisis for the last 10 years and were formally established as a charity in 2012. We currently have 12 members of staff, 10 of whom are part-time .

We provide overnight accommodation and meals to homeless and vulnerable people who would otherwise be rough sleeping in Milton Keynes during the coldest months of the year (November–March). We work in partnership with churches and community centres across the city who provide their facilities as an overnight venue and operate with a body of around 800 volunteers each season to provide beds, meals and overnight supervision. We also provide year-round welfare support from our centre, Unity Park Station, enabling our guests to access drug and alcohol support services, to obtain housing advice, move on to longer-term accommodation and to find work.

This winter, due to Covid-19, we are unable to operate overnight accommodation in the usual way but are supporting the government’s ‘Everyone In’ policy and focusing on the provision of welfare support and food provision.

The Trustees of the charity recognise a growing need for support for people who are newly or vulnerably housed, with people struggling to maintain personal stability and tenancies in the longer term. The economic impacts of the pandemic are increasing need and making need more acute for the foreseeable future. To this end we are undertaking a capital fundraising campaign to establish a new day centre to provide services to people who are newly housed or at risk of homelessness (further details available on request to our Communications Assistant, contact details under 'How to apply'). The campaign following its initial stages represents c.£1.1m over the course of the contract.

The role of the Senior Fundraising Manager will involve:

  • Setting fundraising strategy, targets and plans to achieve the charity’s objectives from a wide range of income streams.
  • Managing the fundraising team including line managing the Fundraising Manager who will in turn have line management responsibility for a Fundraising Assistant (both part-time).
  • Delivering the charity’s required operational income (c.£300k per financial year).
  • Leading the c.£1.1m capital fundraising campaign for the new day centre.
  • Contracting external services where required to supplement the skills or capacity of the team.
  • Reporting to and carrying out the wishes of the Board of Trustees.

We are looking for someone with leadership qualities, with the ability to delegate and motivate others. They will need to be self-motivated and have good initiative, with an aptitude for organisation, strategic planning and managing budgets.

The right candidate will be a good communicator, confident in interactions with all people, with proven experience of raising 6-figure sums from a range of income streams. We are particularly interested in candidates with a track record of successful bid-writing to grant-making bodies, trusts and foundations.

The position will be based from home, attending meetings or events (usually in the Milton Keynes area) as needed.

The role brings with it the potential for longer-term employment and changes to contracted hours if successful.

A full job description outlining the accountabilities and preferred skills and experience required is available below.

To apply please send a CV with a covering letter/email outlining why you feel you have the necessary skills for this role to our Communications Assistant, Karen Cobbett, details available under 'How to apply'. The deadline for applications is 10 am on Monday 15th Feb.

Please be prepared to provide at least two appropriate references if asked to do so.

Shortlisted candidates will need to be available for online interviews on Tuesday 23rd February or the afternoon of Thursday 25th February (first stage) and Friday 26th February (second stage).

The WNSMK is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all people from any background. A DBS check will be required for the successful candidate.
