Fundraising Project Manager (Challenge Events) - Leading Mental Health Charity - £41,826 - One Year FTC, FT
Charity People are proud to be working with one of the leading mental health charities that provides advice and support to empower anybody experiencing a mental health problem, as well as campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. This is an interesting role for any aspiring project managers looking to lead a team of 3 and deliver their partnership fundraising product.
As the charity's first ever supporter-led initiative, this is a unique opportunity to work closely with the founder of this growing movement, whilst also being a vital part of this leading mental health charity.
We are looking for an experienced Fundraising professional with strong influencing and negotiating skills of both internal and external stakeholders. You will be well versed in budget management; their target for the upcoming year is £1.4m. The successful candidate will be comfortable with account and supplier management, as well as proven experience of developing teams. You will report to the Head of Community & Events Fundraising Marketing & Innovation and work closely with the partnership organisation's CEO.
You will have oversight for the delivery of what is essentially a mass-participation DIY fundraising event of approximately 65,000 participants. Previous challenge or mass participation events management experience is a big plus, although not essential; experience of having managed Charity of the Year partnerships, or bespoke/Special event delivery is also a plus.
They offer some home-working flexibility as well as flexible working hours (10-4 core), as well as a great environment to work in with lots of training & development opportunities.
They are looking to pay £41,826 per annum. Their offices are based in Stratford, London and this is a one year-contract (with potential for extension), full-time position. The application deadline is this Friday 12th July, with a cover letter necessary.
