Our people are our greatest asset and the key to our success. We offer a vibrant, progressive environment where you will make a difference.
About this job
As part of our ambitious 2022 plans, we have the opportunity to expand our Community and Events team, and we’re now looking for a new Fundraising Executive to join our friendly, creative and hard-working team.
We work closely together to achieve an annual income of over £3.2 million.
We’re always ready to go the extra mile to support and inspire the thousands of people out there doing something amazing for people affected by MS.
Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for people to achieve their goals, providing the tools, advice and support they need to reach their potential – and building lasting relationships that mean they continue to fundraise for us in future.
It’s our job to make sure that our supporters have a fantastic experience of fundraising for us.
You’ll provide administrative and project support to the wider team, as well as coordinating a range of fundraising activities to achieve income targets. In particular, you’ll support individuals who are taking part in their own events or organising their own DIY fundraising. And there’ll be plenty of opportunities to attend events and see our work in action!
You’ll be organised, with great customer care and communication skills, and willing to go the extra mile. You'll work closely with supporters, volunteers, local groups and the wider fundraising team.
You’ll be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the basics of community and events fundraising experience and a collaborative approach to teamwork.
If you’re enthusiastic and motivated by helping others achieve something amazing in support of a cause that means the world to them, we’d love to hear from you.
We offer 35 days annual leave (pro rata for part time employees) including bank holidays, travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.
The MS Society is in the midst of an exciting, transformational, period which builds on our great history and will drive us towards achieving our mission and vision as we embark on our Every MS Story strategy.
