The Clock Tower Sanctuary is the city’s only day centre for young homeless people, many of whom are vulnerable to exploitation, violence and abuse and at increased risk of poor mental and physical heath. We offer a safe, supportive environment, where young people experiencing homelessness can access food, showers, laundry facilities, clean clothing and help with the costs of mobile credit, toiletries and sanitary products. We offer life skills classes, as well as activities including photography, yoga, music and groups, to build confidence and self-esteem. Through one-to-one case-working, we support our clients to identify a pathway out of their situations; to find housing, work and training and improve their life chances, so that they can look forward to more positive futures.
In this diverse and creative role, you'll have the chance to develop your skills in a supportive team culture and gain a broad range of experience across the fundraising mix. Whilst there is a focus on researching and writing applications to Trusts and Foundations to meet annual targets, you will also be engaging with our corporate and community supporters, working closely with a part-time Fundraising Officer and other members of the team.
If you have excellent communication skills, a collaborative approach and at least two years’ experience of Trusts, corporate or community fundraising, we would love to hear from you.
Please submit a letter of application outlining why you would like to join our team and how you meet the person specification, along with a copy of your CV. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis and may close the recruitment process for this role prior to the deadline of January 1st 2022, so early applications are encouraged.
We are committed to maintaining a diverse staff team because we know how important it is to reflect the range of needs of the young people who use our services. To improve the diversity of the current staff team we want to strongly encourage applications from people of colour and those with lived experience of homelessness or insecure housing.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
