The Men's Room is a phenomenal small charity delivering life-changing services to marginalised young male and trans sex workers including those at risk of exploitation. As an arts-based social care charity, they place engagement through art at the core of their work using co-production and by championing service user involvement.
Whilst the charity has some established relationships with trusts, foundations and commissioners, they are hoping to diversify their income portfolio and engage with a broader range of supporters.
The charity is well-known locally and able to clearly and powerfully demonstrate its impact. You'll channel current support and raise awareness to reach new audiences, generating new fundraising opportunities and, ultimately, increasing income.
We're looking for an experienced fundraiser with a proven track-record across a range of income streams; ideally a mix of trusts, individuals and/or corporates, but happy to consider candidates with a specialism and transferable skills. You'll have the ability to think strategically about where the wins are likely to be - both short and longer-term - but also deliver results on the ground through exceptional relationship development and management.
If you're a talented fundraiser, then previous experience of the issues facing male or trans sex workers isn't essential. What you will need is sensitivity, compassion and a willingness to get to grips with the challenges experienced by men and trans people with multiple, complex needs and layers of disadvantage.
If you feel that your skills could connect The Men's Room with new funders and donors, then please get in touch with Ellen at Charity People.
Deadline: We are accepting applications on a rolling basis so please get in touch ASAP
