Tools for Self Reliance is a rarity amongst charities – our work genuinely transforms lives. Every tool we send, every new skill learnt, means a person, a family, a community, benefits. And that means every penny we raise will help transform a life. This job isn’t for the faint hearted – it’s fast paced, busy and demanding. Our fundraising team raises almost every penny of our income. So, an experienced fundraiser who genuinely wants to make a difference, really will.
You must be passionate, determined and committed to making a difference in people’s lives. You will have a strong fundraising background and leadership experience, with experience across multiple income streams. You will need the drive to build on a successful programme, chase new and untested opportunities, and achieve significant income growth.
You will be able to think outside the box and have experience of developing and putting a fundraising strategy into practice to ensure key objectives are met or exceeded. Ideally you will also understand how effective communication can drive fundraising activity and be able to integrate consistent messaging across multiple channels.
You will be able to forge excellent working relationships and be able to support and challenge your team to thrive and deliver across a diverse income portfolio to achieve ambitious targets; with an overall income target in excess of £600,000.
You will be a resilient individual and a team player able to work flexibly and at pace to get the job done.
