Do you have proven fundraising experience, a passion for proactive Community Fundraising and a real desire to be part of Shelter’s campaign against homelessness and for social justice? Then join us as Community Fundraising Area Manager and you could soon be playing an important role at the heart of our Community & Events team.
About Shelter Scotland
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet over a million people in Scotland struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter Scotland we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter Scotland and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
About the team
Community & Events is made up of Community Fundraising, Challenge & Bespoke Events and Culture, Entertainment & Sports sub-teams. Together, we look after a wide variety of fundraising activities that encourage supporters to raise money and provide them with excellent support to do so. We’ve made a significant investment in Community Fundraising to grow the team from five in 2019 to 24 currently, despite the pandemic. That’s because increasing engagement in local communities is a central part of both our fundraising and organisational strategy. We now have 12 Regional Fundraisers across England and Scotland; a central Community Fundraising National Relationships team and a robust and supportive management team which, should you join us, you’ll be part of.
About the role
An exciting opportunity with lots of existing and new avenues to explore, you’ll have every chance to really make your mark. That’s because, we have a strategy in place, but there’s still lots to do - and you‘ll be key in developing what we do and how we do it, as well as leading direct reports and the wider team to deliver on your plans. One of your main challenges will be to develop an overarching Community Fundraising team strategy to ensure a clear plan of projected growth and agreed objectives over the next five years. We’ll also look to you to significantly increase Community Fundraising income by enabling the team to proactively engage key audiences and improve the supporter stewardship experience. Creating and delivering an annual budget, taking the lead role for key income streams or activities, helping to create new fundraising products and engaging and influencing key stakeholders – these are just some aspects of this interesting, varied and vital role.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
To succeed, you’ll need to be creative, innovative and able to learn from failure as much as from success. The opportunity to lead, support, coach and empower a team to get out there and achieve success really appeals to you too. You’re also a great believer in putting the supporter experience at the heart of everything you do and eager to engage new and diverse audiences and build authentic relationships – both externally and internally. Adept at influencing and negotiating and great at carrying out detailed analysis or making data-driven decisions, you’re also resilient and, crucially, keen to create a strong, supportive and aspirational culture where the team are motivated by exceeding targets.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.

About City Cancer Challenge (C/CAN):
City Cancer Challenge Foundation (C/Can) supports cities around the world as they work to improve access to equitable, quality cancer care.
The approach is built on the core principle that cities can drive impact at national level by crafting data-driven solutions with the support of a network of global, regional, and local partners that reflect an understanding of the unique local context.
C/Can was launched by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) at the 2017 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos. It was established as a standalone Swiss foundation in January 2019.
In close collaboration with the Director of Global Affairs, the Head of Institutional Fundraising will support C/Can resource mobilisation efforts aimed at enhancing and building relationships within the Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) global health network as well as diversifying and opening up new funding opportunities.
The new Head of Institutional Fundraising will be a self-starter, relationship builder with international experience and already established networks within foundations and governmental field in the health sector. It will be someone who can open doors and unblock funding mechanisms to support C/CAN programmes at the city, country, and regional levels, and who will open and cultivate relationships with new funders and help diversify funding by acquiring new grants from governments and large foundations.
This is not the traditional institutional fundraising role, as there are not readily available funding mechanisms to apply to, so the post holder will need to steward funders to unlock funds to support C/CAN programmes, being a strong networker, with outstanding skills in establishing and growing relations. Ideal location is Washington DC, USA or Geneva Switzerland, but other locations could be evaluated.

- Write briefing notes and other materials to lead on institutional donor relationships effectively.
- Steward institutions to unblock funding for health and coordinate and submit quality proposals to institutional prospects and donors.
- Maintain data on relationships with institutional prospects and donors up-to-date in C/Can’s CRM system.
Desired knowledge, skills, and abilities:
- Minimum of 10 years of experience with fundraising/resource mobilisation, ideally in global health, with a relevant donor and stakeholder network.
- Experience in global development, with the ability to navigate the global health discussions.
- Experience in successfully managing a portfolio of funding opportunities from prospect research to grant agreement.
- Self-starter and independent worker with the ability to go out and pursue new prospects with minimum support, helping C-CAN build from zero a fundraising pipeline.

- Experience of working in a multicultural environment with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to multi-task.
