Just for Kids Law (JfKL) is a dynamic charity working with and for children and young people to hold those with power to account and fight for wider reform. We do this by providing legal representation and advice, direct youth advocacy and support, and through strategic litigation, campaigning and equipping others to work for children’s rights.
We are recruiting for an experienced Head of Fundraising and Development to join our Central Team. Reporting to the CEO, the successful applicant will be passionate about JfKL’s work and be able to communicate its values to funders and stakeholders.
Our work depends on successful fundraising. This newly created role will build on our previous success achieving income from trusts and foundations and major donors, but will also be responsible for diversifying our approach to income generation.
The successful candidate will have held similar positions in other small and growing organisations and will be able to think strategically and demonstrate exceptional skills in all forms of communication. An up-to-date knowledge of charity fundraising is essential as is experience in delivering income from a range of sources, as well as the ability to develop and nurture relationships with partners and stakeholders.
It is an exciting time to join JfKL as we start to develop our new three-year strategy. The Head of Fundraising and Development will play a key role in the development of the strategy as we go forward into 2022.
Just for Kids Law believes in the value of a diverse workforce and encourages applications from people from all ethnic, cultural, religious and social backgrounds: in particular, people from Black and minority ethnic groups and LGBTQI+ communities. We strive to create a diverse working environment where everyone can thrive.
