Camphill Village Trust has one simple vision… To see more people with learning and other disabilities lead a life of opportunity. We have an exciting opportunity for a Head of Fundraising to join the team and play an integral role in enabling the charity to fulfil this vision. Camphill Village Trust is a leading, long established and progressive UK charity that encourages, enables and supports over 500 people across a range of housing and support models and through a range of urban and rural communities and services. This is a hugely exciting time to be joining the Fundraising team as the charity is looking to grow and develop and this brand new role will provide the opportunity for someone to implement exciting plans and contribute to the evolving strategy to ensure success.

As Head of Fundraising, you will be responsible for leading a small but brilliant team and for ensuring budgets are met and the strategy is successfully implemented. This is a unique opportunity as it will allow the successful applicant to adopt a key management role but also remain actively involved in fundraising activity specialising in one of a number of income streams. Major Gifts, Individual Giving and Legacy Fundraising are all areas of growth for the organisation so you will have the opportunity to contribute directly to income generation by specialising in one of these disciplines alongside your management responsibilities. This truly is a wonderfully unique opportunity to join highly reputable and successful organisation in a varied and interesting capacity.

To be considered for this role you should come to us with a breadth of experience across various income streams along with line management experience. Ideally, we are looking for someone with experience within Major Gifts, Individual Giving or Legacy Fundraising however a demonstrable personal track record of generating income in other income streams will also be considered. Perhaps most importantly you should be a strong and confident communicator easily able to lead and inspire others and work effectively as part of a team and with a high level of independence. This is an inherently values based organisation with a positive culture and clear mission and in order to thrive in this role you will need to be supportive of the charity’s values and passionate about it’s wonderful work.

As a national charity, the Trust is able to consider applicants from across the UK who are willing to work through Microsoft Teams and attend meetings in any of our nine communities. However, candidates should be aware that the Appeals Office is in Botton Village on the North York Moors and occasional office presence will be beneficial.  Travel to the office may be paid for candidates living some distance from the office. Part-time applicants will also be considered and the organisation offers a range of generous benefits while actively promoting a healthy work-life balance.

The recruitment for this role is ongoing, and the position will close when a sufficient number of suitable applications have been received. If you wish to express an interest in this role, please apply directly or contact Charlie or Leanne at Charity Horizons for more information.
