Job description

Hours: 35hrs p/w

Location: Farringdon, EC1V 4LW


Place2be is looking to recruit an exceptional Community Fundraising Manager to grow our community fundraising portfolio. You will be joining a small but dynamic team consisting of a Head of Community and Events, Challenge Events Manager and two Community and Events Officers. The team has a target of raising £630k in 2022/23 (individual target of £350k) and ambitious growth plans to be raising £900k as a team by 2024/25. At a time when interest in children’s mental health has never been stronger, this is an exciting time to be joining our dynamic organisation and make a real and tangible difference to children’s futures.

This area of fundraising is reasonably new to the organisation and there is plenty of scope to be innovative and build on the existing programme. We believe there is huge potential for growth and have the investment budgets and ambition to help bring this about. Proactive, results-driven and commercially aware, you will enjoy collaborating with others. You will also ideally have experience in people management, as the role manages one of the Community and Events Officers to effectively carry out and achieve the teams’ goals.

The Community Fundraising Manager will write, deliver and monitor strategies to secure income from the following income streams:

  • Individuals organising their own fundraising in aid of Place2Be
  • Schools, with a particular focus on securing lucrative ‘charity of the year’ partnerships with Independent Schools
  • Local organisations such as community groups, sports clubs, Rotary clubs and Ladies’ Circles
  • University RAG groups
  • Other groups as required, such as local corporates

You will also be responsible for managing the fundraising component of Place2Be’s flagship event, Children’s Mental Health Week, which has been steadily growing year on year with plans to raise over £250k through the campaign in 2023. You will need to have experience of devising and implementing successful business plans for community fundraising, leadership and management experience, excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to manage multiple complex projects.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Experience in creating and managing income and expenditure budgets, as well as regular monitoring and reporting on KPI’s. Experience managing a six figure income budget is desirable.
  • Experience in developing and delivering successful community fundraising strategies, with a focus on growing income and implementing new activities and campaigns.
  • Excellent project management skills with a track record of successfully managing a community fundraising portfolio, involving a wide variety of fundraising activities, to achieving income and participation targets.
  • Proven track record of developing, enhancing and delivering high-quality and innovative stewardship journeys, providing excellent stewardship and building strong relationships with supporters. Experience of managing high value supporter relationships (worth £50,000+) desirable.
  • Experience of providing leadership and management to staff on projects, with either direct or transferrable experience in line managing a direct report
  • Experience of implementing and rolling out marketing strategies and plans to grow support, acquire new supporters, and achieve strategic KPI’s
  • Experience in evaluating fundraising campaigns and activities, with the ability to analyse and interpret data to make insightful recommendations for the future.
  • Strong communication skills with a collaborative and flexible approach to work, looking for opportunities to work together across multiple teams to deliver multiple objectives across the organisation.
  • Excellent attention to detail with the ability to use your own initiative to generate ideas and solutions.
  • An understanding and awareness of Place2Be’s equal opportunities policy and a personal commitment to equality of opportunity
  • An understanding of mental health and/or children’s services is desirable.
  • Ability to work non-standard hours on occasion


Interview dates: 24th August ZOOM Video Interview

In return we offer you a range of fantastic benefits including:

  • Enhanced Annual Leave entitlement
  • Robust Learning and Development Programme
  • Contributory Pension Scheme
  • Life Assurance, 4x Annual Salary
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Mobile Phone Discounts (EE Network)
  • Cycle purchase and season ticket loan schemes
  • Extended Maternity/Paternity Pay

If you share our core values of perseverance, integrity, compassion and creativity and have the counselling skills and patience to support some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people and families, we would love you to join us.

We also provide a range of professional development programmes on mental health and wellbeing for school leaders, teachers and other professionals who work with children and young people, so we can help to build ‘mentally healthy’ schools and communities where all children can thrive and flourish.

We continue to pilot, trial and explore new ways in which we can develop our practice as well as share learning, expertise and findings from the robust evidence and evaluation we gather.

We also work collaboratively with a range of charities and expert organisations to leverage best-in-class knowledge and expertise to inform, develop and improve outcomes for the children, families and schools we support. We ask our staff team to share our core values of perseverance, integrity, compassion and creativity, and to have the skills and patience to support some of the UK’s most vulnerable children and families.
