We have an exciting opportunity to build upon and grow our fundraising success to date, in our newly created Fundraising and Marketing Manager role. We are seeking an experienced fundraising professional, with the drive and determination to manage all aspects of our fundraising function.

Starting from a strong foundation with multiple opportunities for growth, we will support you to develop an ambitious, multi-year, multi-disciplinary a fundraising strategy with an annual fundraising plan agreed with senior management, which you will then implement. With keen funder and customer awareness, you will regularly monitor and review both the plan and the strategy, in addition to working closely with our Finance Manager to manage diverse income streams and achieve income targets to fund AAFDA’s unique support and advocacy work with families bereaved by fatal domestic abuse.
