We are seeking an Interim Head of Fundraising and Communications to lead and inspire our small fundraising and communications team to meet the goals set out in our business plans and achieve our income targets. You will also be joining at an exciting time as we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of our flagship product and service, the Wizzybug Loan Scheme.
You will have:
- Experience leading and managing a team to achieve their goals.
- A successful track record in more than one field of fundraising.
- Experience and knowledge of marketing and/or communications.
- Excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to manage novel or conflicting demands.
You will be joining a team which includes engineers, technicians, product designers, occupational therapists, fundraisers and administrators. Our team is led by strong values: we are creative, inclusive and practical, with our vision being to create a future where every disabled person has the products they want to live the life they choose.
Designability is in a strong financial position, with healthy reserves to support our ambitious plans to expand our charitable operations.
We are really proud that we were recently awarded second place in the 'Best Charities to Work for 2020' list by Third Sector which is a reflection of our team highly rating the fact that we encourage activities that create strong teams and foster good personal relationships. Our staff also stated their confidence in Designability’s leadership and strategic planning.
The University of Bath provide us with recruitment support and applications are made through the University of Bath Jobs website. We choose to follow many of the University of Bath’s human resources policies. However, Designability is a fully independent charity and our staff contracts are not with the University.
