Job description

Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) provides vital funding and resources to support the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit in providing life-saving medical equipment, parent accommodation for families and essential ward resources. At CHSF they recognise that caring for people with congenital heart disease involves so much more than just treating the heart itself, which is why they care for the heart, mind, family and future. If you are looking to develop your career within an organisation with a mission such as this, then this could be the opportunity for you!

We are looking for a Fundraising Assistant to join the organisation and play an integral role in supporting the Fundraising team across a range of events and activities. The role will be incredibly varied and will involve a range of tasks including thanking supporters, sending out fundraising packs, updating the CRM system, distributing literature for events and ensuring excellent customer service is provided when engaging with supporters at all times. As Fundraising Assistant, you will play a key role in supporting the wider fundraising function and will be required to assist in other areas of fundraising including Trust & Foundations and Corporate Fundraising.

To be considered for this role you should be a strong and confident administrator with excellent organisational skills and a high level of attention to detail and ability to work to deadlines. You should possess good written communication skills but also be a personable individual and able to communicate with a range of audiences both internal and external to the organisation. Ideally you should have experience working with CRM systems and databases and experience working within the charity sector would be advantageous (but not a pre-requisite). Perhaps most importantly you should be passionate about the wonderful work of this fantastic charity and be committed to working as part of a team to support others to achieve great results. In return for your hard work and dedication you will be well renumerated with a good package of benefits and be joining a supportive team with a great culture.

The close date for the role is 3rd December with proposed dates for interview of 14th / 15th December. If you wish to express your interest in this vacancy early application is advisable, apply here or contact Charlie or Leanne at Charity Horizons for more information.

Please note: If you would like to submit an application or express your interest in an alternative format, such as audio or video upload, please contact either Charlie or Leanne who will be happy to advise on this.

We welcome and encourage applications from all suitable candidates irrespective of age, disability, hidden disability, race or national origin, religion or belief, gender, gender expression, political view, sexual orientation, medical condition and pregnancy.
