We are looking for a Regional Fundraiser to join our small, friendly Fundraising Team on a flexible, part-time basis of 7.5 hours per week and lead on developing local support for Daisy's Dream in Cheshire East. Local support will be in the form of fundraising, volunteers and awareness, ensuring that Daisy’s Dream Cheshire East is able to respond to the needs of children and families affected by life threatening illness or bereavement in its surrounding areas.
Daisy’s Dream Cheshire East is a recently established arm of the bereavement charity Daisy’s Dream, which has been based in Berkshire for the past twenty-five years and benefits from a dedicated and loyal network of support across the region.
The Regional Fundraiser forms part of our home-based fundraising team who work closely together to deliver a successful and varied programme of fundraising activities including corporate, trusts and grants, community, events and individual giving. The postholder will be based within the Cheshire East area to work together with our Cheshire East based, highly experienced Therapeutic Practitioner, who leads our services to families in the area.
With previous experience of fundraising or transferable skills from a similar customer focussed role, such as marketing or sales, you will be a friendly, personable communicator with the ability to forge wide-ranging and productive relationships. As this is a home-based role, you will be self-motivated, comfortable working under your own initiative and confident in approaching new contacts who may have little or no knowledge of Daisy’s Dream’s services.
You will take a enthusiastic and creative approach to your role, understanding fundraising to be a challenging but rewarding task. You will also be organised with good attention to detail, the ability to spot opportunities and a knowledge or understanding of different types of fundraising. As fundraising for Daisy’s Dream within Cheshire East is still a relatively new venture, you will be confident in trying out new approaches and have a positive attitude towards learning within the role.
