Lockdown has brought a number of serious issues to the fore for society's most vulnerable; victims of domestic abuse and violence are at much greater risk at home with their abusers. In this brand-new fundraising role, you'll have the opportunity to make a significant impact on the lives of women and children experiencing domestic abuse from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds across Greater Manchester.
Initially a 12 month contract due to the current funding model, but the hope is very much that this post will open up opportunities for sustainable funding in order to extend and potentially become permanent.
This small, but mighty charity is committed to creating a safe space, providing culturally sensitive support, language assistance, and a voice and identity to BAME women facing violence in their lives. This is a new post, created to help the organisation diversify income streams and increase relationship-led fundraising from major donors, corporates and individuals.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a dynamic self-starter with exceptional interpersonal skills to bring new ideas, try new things and build new relationships. As this is the charity's first and sole Fundraiser, it is crucial that you can think strategically and deliver operationally. You'll work creatively and with autonomy to develop new initiatives, working closely with the senior leadership team to develop a sustainable fundraising strategy for the future.
To apply, we'd love to see the following skills, experience and attitudes on your CV:
* Impressive track-record of raising money from either individuals or corporates, regularly at four and, ideally, five figure level
* Strategic mind-set with the practical skills and desire to be a hands-on fundraiser
* Positive attitude and team player who brings out the best in those around them
* Understanding of how to lay solid foundations for a sustainable fundraising future
* Ability to influence internal stakeholders, developing and nurturing a culture of fundraising
Flexible, life and family friendly organisation.
