We are looking for a Corporate Fundraising Officer to be based in our Head Office in Bicester (will consider home working for the right candidate), to work with our existing corporate contacts in London, Birmingham and the South to generate unrestricted income, as well as look for opportunities to bring new supporters on board for the charity.
As one of the most visible members of the charity’s staff, you will be a brand ambassador for us and will need to be dynamic, outgoing and confident in your abilities to work with corporate contacts, often at a senior level, whilst conducting yourself with the utmost professionalism at all times. The role blends elements of event organisation (as you will be expected to facilitate events our supporters are holding for us, and guide them to completion), relationship management and development. Creative candidates from corporate backgrounds with experience in these areas would be welcomed.
Outstanding organisational and communication skills are a must in this post, as we would anticipate that the successful candidate be able to work independently and take responsibility for owning the relationships they have, whilst providing clarity on their processes and being an integral part of the fundraising team.
You will be working directly with our Fundraising Administrator and reporting into our Fundraising Manager, who is based in Manchester. Beyond being a key part of this small but perfectly formed team, you will be expected to work with the Chief Executive, Head of Commercial Partnerships, Marketing Team and broader team on a regular basis, as well as maintain relationships with the Acquired Brain Injury Coordinators in your area, to facilitate smooth communication between teams.
It is a cliché to say it, but this really is one of those jobs where no two days are the same, and for the right individual, it will be a wonderful opportunity to forge a career in the charity sector working for an exciting brand amongst a team that is truly passionate about the work they do.
