Norwich, Norfolk (Hybrid)
£22,000 per year
Permanent, Full-time
Job description

We are Norfolk’s charity for people living with sight loss and visual impairment. Providing practical and emotional support at our hubs in Norwich, King’s Lynn and Great Yarmouth and in hospitals across Norfolk. Together with social and well-being activities for adults and children, young people and their families, daily living equipment, befriending services and specialist housing, we help those affected by sight loss to live life fully.

About the role

We are looking for a real team player who will work to integrate community fundraising and social media marketing into our volunteers and events teams. This is a time of change for the organisation and the ideal candidate will be someone who is not afraid to embrace and promote new challenges and new technology. This is a multi-tasking role and an ability to prioritise and organise a busy workload is essential. The two sides to the role (community fundraising & communications) are interlinked and there is an expectation to develop this in the role. A can-do attitude is more important to us than a long history of marketing experience, as on-going training and support will be provided.

Vision Norfolk (previously the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind) is going through a period of organisational change, which means the successful candidate will have room for growth and development in this role.

The ideal candidate will have:

· Experience of forging partnerships with companies, clubs or groups, from prospect researching through to pitching

· Excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to develop compelling partnership proposals

· A real passion for team working and collaboration to drive results

· Meticulous attention to detail and data management to drive a new supporter pipeline

· A real passion for working in public fundraising and delivering engaging and inspiring supporter experiences

· Have an excellent knowledge of the best content for different social platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok and YouTube and a passion for emerging platforms and audiences

· DBS check required at Enhanced level

Please submit a covering letter (no longer than 2 x A4) along with your most recent CV. Please clearly address the points in the person specification with examples in your application.
