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.
As with many organisations we are re-calibrating to adjust to the changes that have been brought by the Coronavirus pandemic, which has only increased the demand for what we do.
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.
Closing date: Thursday 8th September 2022 at 5pm.

About the role
As an independent charity we rely on the generosity of donors to support our work and help those in need.

You will collaborate with fellow colleagues in other Help Musicians departments to ensure that we have a clear and exciting focus to engage and grow our supporter base.
Who we want:
A good communicator – who can speak to members of the public, musicians and staff, plus write copy, and help to plan engagement campaigns
A deliverer – who drives growth and improves relationships
Empathetic – understanding the motives of supporters to deepen engagement and identify new markets

Help Musicians is a charity that loves music and for 100 years has been working hard to make a meaningful difference to the lives of musicians across the UK. We want to create a world where musicians thrive.
A musicians’ life can be precarious with ups and downs throughout a career. Opportunities must be hard-won, whilst challenges come along all too easily, with unsteady income and physical and mental health concerns common issues to navigate. Musicians were hit hard during the pandemic, with thousands needing financial hardship support to make ends meet.
As we look ahead, we are committed to helping re-build careers and reaching more musicians across the U.K to make a meaningful difference to the lives and careers of the individuals who bring such joy to all of us through their talent.
