We are looking for a creative, self-motivated and enthusiastic fundraiser to lead our Community and Corporate fundraising across our region.
The role is responsible for building and managing a pipeline of fundraising opportunities, creating great relationships with our supporters, and organising a small number of fundraising events. You would represent the charity at events throughout the region, including giving talks or presentations.
This is an exciting opportunity for a proactive person with strong people skills to make a real difference to the lives of local people living with sight loss in the area.
The role could be based out of our offices in either Devizes or Bristol, but would involve regular travel across the West of England area in which we operate (Bristol, Bath & NE Somerset, South Glos, Swindon or Wiltshire).
Salary £26,000 pro rata. This is a part-time role, 0.6 Full Time Equivalent. This could be 3 days a week, but this role would require occasional unsocial hours, and so would suit an annualised hours contract.
You will have experience in fundraising, charity or community sector, a proven ability to ‘make the ask’ and motivate supporters to make income targets.
Please send CV accompanied by a cover letter outlining your suitability for the role and how you meet the criteria in the person specification. Applications without cover letters will not be considered.
Sight Support is committed to quality, equality and valuing diversity, and welcome applications from all backgrounds. As a sight loss charity, we particularly encourage applicants who are visually impaired to apply.
If you would like to know more about the role before you apply, informal confidential discussions prior to application are welcome; please call our office to arrange an appointment.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
