Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) is currently seeking an experienced fundraising officer to support the growth of the organisation. You will help us realise our vision of a city region free from poverty and be an integral part of our small but growing team. GMPA is all about impact. From promoting the Real Living Wage to working with Greater Manchester’s councils on local poverty strategies and initiatives, our work has never been more needed.
The role will be home based with the need for some travel within Greater Manchester, and with the option of some office based working once we are able to return to our main base in central Manchester. Initially the role will last for 18 months.
This is a new role and will predominantly focus on supporting funding applications to trusts and foundations, as well as supporting income generation through other sources and developing and overseeing the organisation’s fundraising strategy alongside the CEO and COO.
To apply please send a CV and covering letter by email (as attachments in word format) detailing why you are suitable to the role.
Your application should directly address the person specification detailed in the job description. Please also provide the names and contact details of two referees.
The deadline for applications for this role is 5pm on Thursday March 4th, 2021.
GMPA is an open and inclusive organisation. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, including people with lived experience of poverty.
