A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for an innovative, passionate and determined person to take on the position of Head of Fundraising at The Snowdrop Project. We are a rapidly growing charity helping to lead the way in supporting survivors of human trafficking. We have a diverse income stream that is mainly comprised of trusts and grants, regular and one off donations, events fundraising and training income. In the last 5 years, we have doubled our income every 2 years and purchased a large building, all without growing the fundraising team. However, we are now excited to see the team expand and seeking a highly experienced fundraiser with leadership experience who would relish the challenge to build on our previous success and generate new and creative opportunities.
We are particularly interested in someone who has experience attracting corporate support and developing a legacy income stream. You will become part of a vibrant team who are in the job to bring real and lasting change to both our direct beneficiaries and the national and international field. Your role within the senior leadership team will involve strategy development, effective team management and ensuring we maintain and continue our trajectory of growing stable finances providing security of service for our current clients and allowing us to reach more survivors and increase our influence.
You will need to have a proven track record of: working with and understanding multiple fundraising streams; successful income generation; strong leadership and organisational skills; excellent IT and communication; demonstrating that you are approachable and trustworthy; enjoying working both independently and collaboratively; and prioritising rapidly changing lists of tasks.
We offer a supportive and fun team environment, CPD training opportunities, individual support with health and wellbeing and a 4% contribution to the pension autoenrollment.
Snowdrop Project is one of the leading charities in the anti-trafficking sector that provides long-term support to survivors of human trafficking through advocacy, counselling, community activities and a house renovation programme. The Snowdrop Project has become a respected name in the field, being invited to be part of the Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group, speaking in the House of Lords and provide training to local authorities, police and health professionals in various locations around the UK. Last year we received the prestigious CSJ Award for significant contribution to tackling social inequality in our income category. We have been running as a funded charity for 6 years and grown exponentially with very little staff turn over. We are passionate about meeting the needs of survivors, finding gaps of service that are not being met and setting and maintaing standards of best practice in everything we do.
We are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships
