Our bold vision is for every child in need to be raised in a strong family. We train and support facilitators from local churches to run parenting programmes which equip parents and carers facing disadvantages with confidence, competence, and community, enabling their children to thrive. We want to equip the church to reach 10% of children living in the 100 most deprived communities in the UK – 44,000 children.
At a significant time of growth for Kids Matter, we are looking for an individual to come and join us as our Fundraising Manager to help us achieve a sustained increase in funds and maximise our impact throughout the UK. Our ability to build engagement and secure resources to scale our work is vital and this role is right at the heart of this opportunity. This role will offer the right candidate the opportunity to gain experience across all aspects of fundraising in an agile team where there is freedom to develop new ideas and ways of doing things.
If you have experience of working for a charity in a fundraising or income generating role, an ability to build and nurture key relationships, and if you thrive working in a small and dynamic team, we would love to hear from you!
All applicants must be committed to the basis of faith, vision, and ethos of Kids Matter.
