Fundraising Salesforce Administrator Jobs in Nottingham
If you are passionate about giving vulnerable young people life changing opportunities, want to make a real impact through your work and are looking to join a dynamic fundraising team with lots of potential, then this is the job for you. This is a fantastic opportunity for somebody who wants to take the next step in their career to help shape a new regional fundraising strategy and maximise income generation from a new geographical area. Building on the success of our Wiltshire-based fundraising, you will help us tap into the potential of new supporters from the Somerset area as we expand our Programmes to reach vulnerable young people in this part of the South West.
It is an exciting and varied position which would be perfect for somebody who is creative and organised with experience of building relationships, organising events and managing a diverse workload. You may already be a Regional Fundraiser looking for your next role with an ambitious medium-sized charity, or you may currently be in your first fundraising role, ready to take the next step in your career. Whatever your experience, we are committed to investing the time in developing the right individual. This new role will be shaped according to your skills and expertise, and will develop over time based on the success we have in building partnerships with local businesses, securing major donor support, running local events and engaging the community with our plans.
As a Regional Fundraiser, you’re a people-person, self-motivated, well-organised, able to multitask, a strong administrator, a fantastic team player, have excellent interpersonal skills and enjoy being outdoors. You must be as comfortable in the boardroom engaging high net-worth individuals as you are donning wellies and waterproofs to stand on the side of a mountain for the day.
There will be plenty of opportunity to meet the young people on our programmes, visiting camps and taking part in activities. This will help you really understand the life-changing difference the Youth Adventure Trust makes and enable you to show our donors and fundraisers the tangible impact of their support.
The Youth Adventure Trust is a youth development charity working with vulnerable young people aged 11 to 16 years old from Wiltshire and Swindon. In 2024 we plan to expand our services to support young people from Somerset through our YAT Resilience Programme in the first instance but eventually through all four of our Programmes.
Our outdoor activity based YAT Adventure Programme enables young people to challenge themselves, experience success, learn to go beyond their own expectations and grow in confidence. Through a series of residential camps and day activities they are able to build resilience, self esteem and develop social and life skills. The YAT Resilience Programme works to the same outcomes through a year long programme of monthly activities, home-based challenges and reflective practice. Our Mentoring Programme works with those young people in need of some additional individualised support at the end of our other programmes. The Trust’s Bursary Programme is open to all those young people who have completed an initial programme, in order to assist their next steps into further activities. Our aim is to make a lasting improvement to the lives of vulnerable young people. All our services are provided completely free of charge to the young people who are nominated by schools and other youth organisations to take part.
The continued success of the fundraising team is more important than ever as we plan to increase our capacity and reach into a new geographical area. This is an exciting time to join a small charity with big ambitions and this role will be instrumental in enabling us to reach more vulnerable young people at a time when they need support more than ever.
