Job description

Prospectus is excited to be partnering with Thames Reach to recruit their new Head of Fundraising and Communications. Thames Reach is a charity based in London supporting people facing street homelessness through prevention, intervention, and recovery. They specialise in helping people with complex and multiple needs, including those associated with poor mental health and substance misuse. They are looking to appoint a new Head of Fundraising and Communications for the first time.

The Head of Fundraising and Communications will primarily be responsible for developing and implementing a fundraising strategy that utilises a great fundraising team and activities that already exist while also creating space to grow fundraising in new areas. Reporting to the Director of People, the post holder will work closely with the CEO and other members of the SMT to align the work of the Fundraising and Communications teams, ensuring business plan targets are met. You will manage high performing Fundraising and Communication teams and ensure supporters and partners are championed and thanked appropriately.

The selected candidate will have demonstrable fundraising leadership experience and will enjoy motivating staff to achieve exceptional, important fundraising and communication results for an organisation. You will have a proven track record of successful income generation through various fundraising revenue streams and will personally have secured five figure gifts. The ideal candidate will have experience of developing and successfully implementing a fundraising strategy too.

For those candidates shortlisted for interview with Thames Reach, interviews are due to take place as follows:

1st Stage interviews - 11th February and 14th February

2nd Stage interview - w/c 21st February


If you feel you meet some of the criteria but not all, we really hope you'll enquire and learn more. Prospectus can advise and support on each part of the role and hopefully your application, so we look forward to hearing from you.
