About the role
This is a great opportunity to join one of the most successful community fundraising team in the sector.
The main focus of the role will be on building and developing long term relationships in the community, in your own designated fundraising area, where you will grow a network of inspired and engaged local communities supporting Marie Curie.
A key element will be to support, develop and inspire volunteers and fundraising groups to ensure local fundraising activity is as effective as possible in delivering the maximum benefit for Marie Curie. You will provide excellent stewardship and support to our fundraising groups and volunteers to enable an increase of income and deliver the agreed Community Fundraising Strategy.
Handling inquiries from supporters and representing the charity across your area, including supporting and delivering the local running of national campaigns, such as the Great Daffodil Appeal and Swimathon, through relationships built with individuals, groups, associations and companies.
Ideally, you'll come to us with some insight into how local fundraising works, supported by a good and demonstrable range of office skills. You may have worked in the charity sector, event marketing, or PR. But more important is your ability to use your sound communication and customer service skills, to ensure that we continue to maintain and grow the budget we need to support the work of Marie Curie across Dorset
In addition, you will be fully mobile enabled providing you with the flexibility needed to work in the community to build a successful network of supporters. Interested candidates should hold their full UK driving license and have access to a vehicle. In return for your own commitment, we commit to actively developing you and offer a comprehensive Community Fundraising Training Pathway, buddying, mentoring, shadowing and coaching through your individually tailored personal development plan.
