Cleft lip and/or palate is the most common craniofacial abnormality which babies can be born with; around one in 700 babies are born with a cleft around the world - that's roughly 1,200 babies born with a cleft each year in the UK. Since 1979, CLAPA has been the only national charity dedicated to all those with, and affected by, cleft lip and/or palate in the UK. The organisation is there from the get-go; they reach out to families from the moment of diagnosis and help them through any difficulties they may have before and after the birth of their child. Along with a specialist feeding service and a national network of trained volunteers, the Charity provides one-to-one emotional support, local events and meet ups, and targeted information for those affected.
This is a small but ambitious charity; with 23 employees, 10 trustees and over 130 volunteers, CLAPA considers itself a community of parents, patients, healthcare professionals and more. They are looking for a confident and experienced Fundraising Manager to hit the ground running, and commit to the Charity's overall income target of £769K. You will be leading a hardworking team of three professionals, experienced in their fundraising areas: community fundraising, challenge events and trusts fundraising. As Trusts income makes up for a third of the organisation's income, you will also be required to work alongside the Trusts and Grants Fundraiser to secure gifts of four, five and six figures.
This is an excellent opportunity for a determined professional looking to join a hands-on organisation that provides vital support and information. We are looking for someone conscientious, driven and earnest. The ideal person is someone with experience of differing funding streams and is happy managing a small fundraising team. You must be willing travel and occasionally be flexible about hours of work (Time Off in Lieu provided). You will be expected to begin your assignment from the 7th August onwards.
This is a wonderful opportunity for someone looking to experience a smaller charity with a huge heart. It is truly an organisation where you are surrounded by people motivated by this worthy cause.
