Here at Charity Horizons we are delighted to be supporting Family Fund in their search for a Fundraising Manager to join at a very exciting time in the charities development. Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. Last year the charity provided over 89,000 grants or services worth over £33 million to families across the UK, and with 93% of families telling the charity that the pandemic has had a negative impact on their child’s health and wellbeing, Family Fund are now committed to supporting families to recover from this uniquely difficult period.
As Fundraising Manager you will play a leading role in coordinating the delivery of the fundraising strategy across key income streams including events, community and individual giving. You will lead a small but brilliant and ambitious team to equip them with the tools to grow income growth and provide the best supporter experience for all volunteers and fundraisers.
In this role you will support with the development of the Individual Giving Strategy and manage existing individual giving activities, seeking to understand trends and opportunities for growth. Additionally you will be responsible for coordinating and managing the recruitment and delivery of larger third party event teams as well as play a leading role in managing a high value corporate partner (along with the Corporate Partnerships Manager and Head of Fundraising). This all makes this an incredibly interesting and varied role and one certainly not to be missed!
We are looking to speak with fundraising candidates with demonstrable experience managing multiple income streams ideally across community, events or individual giving. Previous experience of line managing fundraising staff is essential, as is experience delivering and creating fundraising plans and strategy. You should be a strong and confident communicator able to build relationships with ease and be able to research and identify appropriate fundraising opportunities. Perhaps most importantly, you should be passionate about the work of the charity, aligned with the organisation’s values, and enthusiastic about fundraising and the positive impact you will have on disadvantaged families across the UK.
We are currently recruiting for 2 posts. 1 post is an interim full time role for 3 months (with the potential to go permanent) and the other is a full time permanent position. Please indicate in the subject line or your supporting information which role you are interested in. The roles can be either based partly from home with some travel to the charity’s offices in York, or alternatively entirely home based. The role will also involve some UK wide travel. Family Fund is a values orientated organisation that puts its staff and beneficiaries at the heart of all it does so in joining the charity you will become part of an inclusive and supportive team and make a real difference to families across the UK.
We will be recruiting for this role on an ongoing basis, and when we have a sufficient number of suitable applicants the role will close so early application is advisable. To register your interest, or find out more, apply directly or contact Charlie or Leanne at Charity Horizons.
