Job description

Here at Charity Horizons we are delighted to be supporting Family Fund in their search for a Head of Fundraising to join the team at this busy and exciting time. 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 Head of Fundraising you will take the lead in successfully delivering Family Fund’s fundraising strategy, managing all aspects of income generation and supporting the wider team. You will also be responsible for governance, budgeting and managing processes related to fundraising, ensuring best use of available resources in order to maximise income. With a recently written 5 year strategy, this role provides a hugely exciting opportunity to implement growth in what promises to be a transformational year. 

To be considered for this role you should be a skilled fundraiser with significant experience leading and managing teams. Experience across a variety of income streams is essential, and any specific experience in individual given desirable. You should be a resourceful and creative leader with strong communication skills and an ability to develop relationships with funders and create compelling proposals for support. 

This is a contract position to cover a maternity period of 9 months. As a result of the impacts of Covid-19 this role will be home-based for the foreseeable future meaning we are able to consider people outside of the office’s locality. Family Fund has adapted to the pandemic in a proactive manner meaning teams are working successfully from home and people are well supported and connected as they work remotely. 

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. This is an incredibly exciting job role that provides a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference to families across the UK – apply now, to avoid disappointment! To register your interest, or find out more, apply directly or contact Charlie or Leanne at Charity Horizons.
