A full Job Description is enclosed.

Who are you?

You’re a talented fundraiser with proven experience of developing and implementing a fundraising strategy across individual giving and ideally one of either legacy, in-memory, or community fundraising programmes.  Your direct marketing skills are excellent, and you’ll have a proven ability to successfully apply these to a range of products and audiences in order to increase income.  You are audience led, and make decisions based on the right thing for them, not you. Ideally, you’ll also have experience of managing either third party or owned events, and genuinely care about giving outstanding support to your participants in order to generate more money for SeeAbility.

You’re a people person, able to build great relationships with supporters, colleagues and suppliers alike.  You’ll be familiar with using relational databases, and enjoy getting to grips with data, numbers and processes, and be able to interrogate and communicate complex financial or data analysis to a range of audiences.  You’ll be passionate about creating a strong team around you, willing to flex and support each other and their colleagues, and able to develop the talent your team has.  We’re a small team so you’ll also have a ‘can do’ attitude, and be willing to give things a try.
