Experienced trust fundraiser required for an interesting and fulfilling part-time role that also encompasses communications and assisting our Director with other duties.
We are a registered charity dedicated to providing mobility, learning and sensory impaired people of all ages with independent access to water-based activities such as nature watching, pleasure boating, powerboating and angling in our specially designed wheelchair accessible Wheelyboats. We don’t operate Wheelyboats ourselves, instead we help venues that are open to the public acquire Wheelyboats for the benefit of their disabled visitors and we help groups and organisations acquire Wheelyboats for their own use. So far we have supplied 200 Wheelyboats to projects on inshore waters, lochs, lakes, reservoirs, rivers and canals all over the UK. As far as we know there is no other charity designing, building, funding and supplying this type of craft anywhere in Europe.
Our most important and time consuming role is fundraising to support individual Wheelyboat projects. Wheelyboats are unique and expensive items of equipment that we design ourselves and have built to order. Raising funds to discount their cost has been our policy from the outset and helps ensure that Wheelyboat supply and availability is maximised across the UK.

This is a part-time post up to 30 hours per week initially with potential for full-time. We are keen to attract the right person for this job so working hours and salary are negotiable. Salary guide is £26,000 pa FTE. Statutory pension contributions apply.

It can be home-based with some working from the Trust’s office which is located at the Director’s home near Petworth, West Sussex.
