Chell Perkins Ltd… Who are we?
There are thousands of charities throughout the UK with the most amazing vision for transforming the lives of those in their communities. However, unfortunately some of these charities are unable to unlock the full potential of their vision due to a lack of finances, resources and/or fundraising expertise. At the heart of it, Chell Perkins Ltd exists to make a very real and lasting impact on the third sector through increasing the availability of high quality fundraising. We achieve this by identifying, partnering with and nurturing the next generation of potential fundraisers to see all charities have access to bespoke, effective and affordable fundraising support.
Before forming Chell Perkins Ltd, we were fortunate to work for charities passionate about developing their staff. They offered us training, sharpened our fundraising skills, challenged us, and invested in our ability to fundraise well.
For the last four years, Chell Perkins Ltd has been trying to pay this kindness forwards through our Junior Fundraising Training Programme and we are now looking for support from an experienced Head of Fundraising to take this programme further.
If you would like to be considered for this role, please send us your CV and a covering letter explaining why you feel you would be suited to this role (no more than three sides of A4). Send this, along with the most relevant samples of your fundraising work.
Thank you for your interest in this role and we will be in touch with you shortly after the submission deadline.
