Job description
Director of Fundraising and Communications

Cardinal Hume Centre, Westminster

Salary: £55,000 - £65,000 (depending on experience)
Closing date: 5 July 2021

About Us:

Value potential - help tackle youth and family homelessness.

Based in Westminster for over 30 years, the Cardinal Hume Centre is at an exciting stage in our development.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a full life, but we know that homelessness and poverty can wreck that potential. Too often homelessness at a young age is repeated and compounded in later years. Our renewed vision is to increase our focus on young people, children and their families. To value every individual, nurture their potential and help people thrive.

Last year in the height of the lockdown, we were able to help over 1,100 people. Backed by the generosity of our funders and donors, we raised £2.4m or 70% of our income from voluntary sources in our last financial year.
We are now seeking a Director of Fundraising and Communications to lead at this critical time, to grow our fundraising and break new ground.

About You:

You will need senior relationship fundraising and communications experience, but equally important is the ability to be an inspiring and strategic leader. We need someone led by values and a passion for our purpose, who can see and communicate the bigger picture but is also attentive to the importance of detail. Someone who can support an exceptional team to plan, develop and build on their combined success.

We particularly want to encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply to support our efforts to build a more diverse and skilled leadership team. We know different experience and ways of thinking make us stronger.
You will be backed by a hugely supportive and accessible Board that is ambitious for our success. We have set aside funds to invest in future developments. If you help us make the right choices, we are certain there is real potential to make an even bigger difference.

We know we’re asking a lot, but we also value potential. If you share our values and can bring skill and enthusiasm, we would encourage you to apply.

You may have experience of the following: Head of Fundraising and Communications, Senior Fundraising Manager, Senior Fundraising Officer, Head of Fundraising, Philanthropy Manager, Charity, Fundraising Director, Fundraising Director, Director of Fundraising, Business Development Executive, Head of Communications, Head of Marketing, Senior Marketing Manager, Senior Brand Manager, Senior Communications Manager, Head of Brand and Communications, Charities, NFP, Not for Profit, etc.
