Job Description

We are delighted that you are interested in the role of Community and Corporate Fundraiser here at Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis (APF).  We are looking for an outstanding community and corporate fundraiser to work with the CEO and a newly formed team as we take APF through a significant period of development and growth.  This is a particularly exciting time to join our team.

Pulmonary fibrosis refers to a specific group of lung diseases thought to be affecting around 70,000 people in the UK. The nature of these diseases all cause hardening and scarring of the lungs, preventing the transfer of oxygen into the bloodstream. It has a devastating impact on quality of life and is invarably fatal.

The debilitating nature of these diseases means as people become increasingly breathless their need for physical and emotional support becomes greater. Pulmonary fibrosis affects every area of family life.  Yet there is very little dedicated support available to patients and families affected.

Since APF was set up as a charity in 2013 we have established ourselves as a respected and influential charity.  APF has grown in impact and scale since it was formed.  We have agreed a new Strategic Plan for 2019-2024 which sets out our direction for the coming years.

The Community and Corporate Fundraiser is a new and pivotal appointment that will assume responsibility for the majority of our current income and develop a new income stream from companies. You’ll grow our fundraising capacity setting up a new CRM, and developing tools, materials and setting up events that will engage a broad range of stakeholders.  You will also ensure we are compliant with regards to fundraising standards and work in line with APF’s values.

We are a collaborative, hard-working and fun team, with lots of mutual respect and support to reach organisational goals.  In your role you’ll need to demonstrate care and compassion, flexibility and be solution focussed.

If you believe you have the experience, skills and qualities we are looking for, we very much look forward to hearing from you.

Please note, CV's only will not be accepted.  Only applications with supporting statements will be considered for shortlisting.
