ABOUT ART AGAINST KNIVES
AAK are an award winning creative charity that collaborates with young people, their communities and the creative industry to create lasting social change.
We co-design creative community spaces with young people that provide creative skills training, specialist support, establish trusted relationships, amplify their voices and put them in the lead of their own futures. Our work is underpinned by a trauma and psychologically informed approach to safeguarding young people.
Over the past 10 years we’ve worked with over 1,500 talented young people, collaborated with leading industry partners from Apple to London College of Fashion, secured funding from among others, the Home Office and BBC Children in Need, and established partnerships with pioneering leaders in the sector like our friends at MAC UK.
FUNDRAISER- TRUSTS & STATUTORY
We’re looking for an experienced Trusts and Statutory Fundraiser who’s not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in. As a relatively small organisation we need a fundraising function that’s robust enough to realise our ambitious vision, yet flexible enough to respond to the ever changing landscape of needs, risk and opportunity.
We’re not big enough to build a department, so you will be an absolutely crucial part of the team. We co-design safe, creative spaces with young people; which requires a funding structure that puts young people in the lead.
You will source appropriate funding to bring their ideas to life, ensuring their voices are heard and not adapted to fit a form. You will have the skills and confidence to identify, assess, and clearly present their case for support to a wide range of audiences from small local trusts through to statutory commissioners.
You will be warmly welcomed by a small yet highly organised team who will work collaboratively with you to drive forward our fundraising strategy for 2021 and beyond.
The closing date for this role is noon Tuesday 23th March 2021.
We will be reviewing applications as and when we receive them, so encourage you to submit your applications early!! For more information please download our recruitment pack which can be found via our website.
ART AGAINST KNIVES values diversity and is an equal opportunities employer, working towards becoming a disability confident committed employer. We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applicants from black minority and ethnic communities.
