SALARY: £34,664 to £38,655 per annum (FTE for 37 hours a week)
Carers in Hertfordshire is a well-respected, independent, carer-led charity, established in 1995. The charity works to ensure that all Hertfordshire’s unpaid carers are recognised, valued and supported in their caring role, have the opportunity for a life outside caring and can exercise a collective voice in the county. We support adult carers and young carers and provide information and advice. We also arrange a variety of ways for carers to work collaboratively with professional staff in a wide range of voluntary and statutory organisations, to link our services and help those organisations to develop a carer friendly focus.
The charity has experienced significant growth over recent years, with 110 staff and over 31,000 registered unpaid family carers. During this expansion, the charity’s commitment to driving quality improvements has led to an expansion in the nature and extent of services offered, as well as national acknowledgement through a GSK Impact Award.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Fundraising Manager to join us to further develop, drive and implement our Fundraising Strategy and Plan, which is seeking to achieve a year one income target of c.£105,000.
This post will work across a broad portfolio of fundraising. The post holder will be expected to manage a programme of work including organising and supporting community fundraising events, working with local donors such as for Charity of the Year partnerships, and coordinating and writing applications to grant-making trusts. The post holder will also be responsible for proactively recruiting and raising income with fundraising volunteers and charity partners.
We are looking for a self-motivated and tenacious individual, who has a demonstrable record of raising income and profile at a local level, who has a passion for building quality long term relationships with a variety of different types of donor, and someone who can effectively manage and support our valued fundraising volunteers.
A good standard of IT Skills is required, including use of databases, Microsoft office and the internet. The role will require travel across Hertfordshire, so you will need the ability to travel independently, have access to a car and have a full valid driving license.
This is an exciting time to join us as we develop a new Fundraising Strategy in order to grow our fundraised income and develop new income streams.
