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 charity’s 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, corporate, community and individual giving. You will lead a small but ambitious team and equip them with the tools to grow income and provide the best supporter experience for all volunteers and fundraisers.

In this role you will support across a variety of income streams making it varied and interesting. The role will require you to develop and grow the Individual Giving Strategy, managing existing individual giving activities and 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).

With a brand new Director of Fundraising, Marketing and Comms, the team and directorate are just about the embark on an exciting new strategy for development and growth making this a hugely exciting time to join the organisation in this capacity!

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.

The role 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
