SALARY: £36,422 to £40,616 per annum (FTE for 37 hours a week)
Carers in Hertfordshire is a well-respected, independent, carer-led charity, established in 1995. We work 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, opportunities to meet other carers, and enable a collective voice for carers in the county.
The charity has experienced significant growth over recent years with over 110 staff and over 37,000 registered unpaid carers. We have expanded our range of services and income streams, as well as innovating to improve our services and invested in infrastructure including our database. We retain a strong connection to the local communities we work in, with a wide range of partners.
Its costs around £3 million a year to provide our services and support. Government contracts account for approximately £2.25 million of our income every year. This post will help us to further develop, drive and implement our Fundraising Strategy and Plan, which will supplement this income in order to better serve unpaid carers across Hertfordshire. Covid-19 affected the charity in various ways. As we emerge from the pandemic, we want to ensure that fundraising plays an integral role in the future of the charity.
The post holder will be required to implement and deliver a robust, high-quality Fundraising Strategy and Plan. They will work across teams within Carers in Hertfordshire and develop a broad portfolio of fundraising. This will be underpinned by a programme of trusts and grant applications, with the post-holder co-ordinating and writing applications and reporting to grant-making trusts. The post holder will supplement this with a programme of work including organising and supporting community fundraising events, working with local donors such as for Charity of the Year partnerships, and growing our approach to corporate fundraising. The post-holder will have the opportunity to shape this programme based on their experience and the strengths of the charity.
We are looking for a self-motivated and tenacious individual, who has a demonstrable record of raising income and profile at a local level and who has a passion for building quality long-term relationships with a variety of different types of donor.
A good standard of IT Skills is required, including use of databases, Microsoft office and the internet. Our principle database is Salesforce, though experience of this is not essential. 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.
