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.

Absolutely not. Our membership, revenues and impact grow every year. That's because what drives performance is not whip-cracking managers but clarity of vision, a sense of shared mission and skilled, motivated people.”
Adam Lent, Chief Executive, New Local (view the Twitter thread)
New Local is the proud host of Stronger Things, an annual event that’s become known as the place for equipping and inspiring those that believe the future of public services is community-powered (watch the videos from 2020 and 2022).

Our brilliant network and events team will support your work and, as the Stronger Things approaches, you’ll be expected to lead staff from across the organisation as everyone pitches in.
Just as important as all the above is someone with the imagination and rigour to keep our events standing out. ‘Keeping the quirky’ might sound cheesy, but for us, it’s a fundamental part of creating the warm, safe and fun space that enables people to share and learn with vulnerability.

- Secure speakers with something to say – Find us rock star speakers who will inspire our audience.
- Keep the quirky – Don't lose sight of the little things that make our events special. This year we ditched our registration desks, had a big pink sofa centre stage and hosted an after-hours jazz band. You’ll beat that.
- Establish and deliver new events - Use the Stronger Things banner to introduce an events programme from scratch.
- Develop our business - Work with our organisation partners to develop new, income-generating, events that help fund our work.
- Protect our data - Use processes, software and systems in a way that protects our event registration data.

- Experienced events professional, with a deep understanding and demonstrable background in delivering amazing high-profile events for large audiences.
- Broad-ranging and adaptable, equally comfortable in front of a potential sponsor, attendee spreadsheet and strategy planning session.
- Great communicator, with an ability to write compelling emails and pitch persuasively in-person.

Reporting to: Director of Strategy and Learning
Direct reports: None at this time
Annual leave: 25 days per year plus bank holidays
About the role
The Head of Partnerships is a new and critical role, created as part of our merger with the YMCA George Williams College. We hope the merger will see our quality improvement and training work grow, alongside extending our communities of practice and our offer to them. As such, we created a dedicated post to hold, nurture and grow our approach to working with and through networks, and to oversee our partnership projects.
Networks have long been at the heart of the Centre for Youth Impact’s approach. Built over the last eight years, we deeply value our relationships with our Regional Impact Networks across England, and are excited by the emergence of new relationships in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland – and indeed internationally, particularly building on the legacy of the College. There is now the opportunity to revisit our approach to working with and through networks, particularly in developing a more responsive and ‘tiered’ offer that reflects and responds to the needs, ambitions, and experiences of our different stakeholders.
The Head of Partnerships will be responsible for implementing a new network strategy, strengthening these relationships (including transitioning existing network leads to potentially new ways of working), and framing the support that we offer to network ‘members’ across the UK (further details on our existing networks can be found here). This will include scoping, defining and implementing our approach to supporting/collaborating with members of the YMCA Federation in England and Wales alongside building relationships with the Federations in Scotland and the island of Ireland, as part of the merger with YMCA George Williams College. There is also the potential to work closely with the Director of Strategy and Learning to consider new international learning partnerships.
Over the past few years in particular, the Centre has been increasing its partnership projects: significant programmes of work with one major partner or funder, including cohort-level evaluation, capacity building and learning partnerships.The Head of Partnerships will also manage a range of partnership projects, working alongside other members of the team to initiate, design, and deliver cutting-edge programmes of work. The post-holder will work closely with the Director of Programmes and Director of Strategy and Learning to ensure that we are integrating our learning from our networks into our wider strategy and programmes of work focused on research, evaluation, and organisational learning.
The Head of Partnerships will play a strong role in supporting income generation, particularly for our network support activities. The post holder will also contribute significantly to our communications activities, amplifying the work and voices of our networks, and offering our platform in contribution to greater collective impact.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for an outstanding candidate who is imaginative and responsive, with strong interest and high-level skills in building alliances and collaborations, alongside capacity building for social sector organisations. You will need to have an appetite for understanding and navigating complexity, with an inquisitive mind and interest in youth-focused public policy and system dynamics. An interest and solid understanding of evaluation would be a distinct plus. You will also need to be a strong and confident project manager, with exceptional relationship skills. We take a coaching approach to all of our work, so skills and experience in this area will be a distinct advantage.
You will have the ability to engage with humility and authenticity with a wide range of people and organisations working to support young people. You will be able to spot and make connections between relationships and areas of work and be alive to changes and patterns in the external policy and practice context and the opportunities they present for our charity.
Finally, you will be a skilled facilitator, experienced in both designing and delivering workshops and training. You will also be a compelling and confident writer and presenter who can communicate the breadth of our work. You will be comfortable representing us externally and acting as a ‘thought leader’: openly reflecting the evolution of your ideas and thinking, and generously sharing your learning with others.
