Job description

Are you an experienced, spirited and dedicated fundraiser who really 'owns' what you do and wants to make a positive impact on everything you touch? Then, we would love to talk to you.

Working for a cherished local charity with fantastic brand awareness right in the heart of the community, you'll lead a high-profile events calendar maintaining and developing their success. Some are evolving or brand new events and you will drive them forward. With a newly-established and rapidly building business club, there are initiatives ready to launch to warm business supporters.

Offering flexible working and the option to get your head down with homeworking 1 day per week, you'll be empowered by a supportive and collaborative senior management team. Managing the Events & Corporate Team, you'll work across some of the charity's biggest fundraising activities and relationships with unlimited opportunities to shine.

This critical role for the fundraising department works particularly closely with the Community Fundraising Manager. Together these two posts will work in partnership and are responsible for: the recruitment and operational management of the team; delivery of fundraising business plans; and ensuring that our portfolio of fundraising relationships, campaigns and events are delivered in a way which engages and enthuses supporters and meets revenue targets.

You'll need to be creative, enthusiastic and entrepreneurial. You'll have excellent organisational, customer service and people skills, be good at spotting opportunities and have the drive and energy needed to succeed in a competitive environment. An ability to multi-task is essential in order to implement the strategy and meet deadlines. Charity fundraising or events experience is highly desirable.

This is a 12-month maternity cover contract.

Please get in touch ASAP with a copy of your CV for lots more detail to Amelia Lee: [email protected]

Closing date: 9am on Monday 14th October. Interviews to be held on 28th and 31st October.
