Prospectus is excited to be partnering with New Horizon Youth Centre to support their search for a Fundraising Manager. This role is offered as a one-year contract with the potential to extend thereafter.
New Horizon Youth Centre is a vital support network for 16-24 year olds who have no one else to turn to. They provide everything from hot food, showers and laundry to sourcing accommodation, training and employment. They offer counselling, drug and alcohol support, health, fitness, art, music and communication skills workshops - everything they need to create a positive future.
As part of a small, dynamic and collaborative team, you will lead on fundraising relationships with corporate, individual and community partners. You will be equally comfortable dealing with large companies as with smaller community groups and high net-worth individuals. You will use your creativity to grow and build existing and new relationships, you will deliver first class supporter cultivation and stewardship plans and look to involve young people in fundraising work where appropriate.
New Horizon Youth Centre is looking for you to have a good understanding and interest in various funding streams, with direct experience in at least one (corporate, individuals, community). You will have a positive can-do attitude and will be able to manage your own workload and prioritise accordingly.
The current crisis has led to deep concerns for young people disproportionately affected by the social and economic challenges that the fallout from Covid-19 will bring. This is a chance for you to play an integral role as part of a passionate team to be the crucial support and life-line for homeless young people.

In order to apply, please go to the role on the Prospectus website and submit your CV in the first instance and begin to prepare your supporting statement.
