About the role
This Senior Fundraising Officer role is a new position, ideal for a creative and ambitious fundraiser who is seeking a role where there is an opportunity to develop and step up professionally.
If successful, you will join a small fundraising team where from the start, you will enjoy real responsibility. In this new role, you will work on a diverse range of funding proposals and have the autonomy to lead on the management of your own portfolio of funders. You will also work alongside senior staff, including our CEO and Senior Leadership Team, to develop larger, strategically significant proposals.
Although your main focus will be fundraising from Charitable Trusts and Foundations, you will have the chance to broaden your experience by working with the Fundraising Manager to develop and maintain the fundraising presence on our website and social media. You will also provide administrative support for the team, including keeping up-to-date records.
In this role, you will be home-based or London office-based (Vauxhall). We pride ourselves on being a flexible employer and if you are seeking a role that is 3–4 days a week, we are open to discussion. Apply and let us know what working pattern you are looking for.
In return, we offer: a generous 30 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays (pro rata if part-time), a cycle to work programme and auto-enrolment into a pension scheme, a flexible working environment, including home working, compressed and variable hours, access to employee resource groups, including the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion working group, Wellbeing Committee, regular social activities and a Wellbeing Action Plan for each member of staff.

Kinship is the leading charity in England and Wales for kinship carers – relatives and friends who raise children when their parents aren’t able to. We offer kinship carers expert advice as well as financial, legal, practical and emotional support and understanding from the moment they need it, for as long as they need it. We’re always there to help with the complicated and stressful decisions that so many kinship families have to make, as well as to celebrate the good times.
Working alongside kinship carers and the children they raise, with their voices and views at the fore, we build communities of support and give everything we have to fight for each family and their rights, as well as to raise awareness of kinship care and secure better support for all those playing this critical role.

This is an exciting time to join Muscular Dystrophy Support Centre (MDSC) as Head of Fundraising! We are a small charity that is looking to grow and is ambitious to increase our impact. We are a dynamic, supportive and committed team, and we offer a flexible working environment.
MDSC’s mission is to transform access to physical therapies for people with muscular dystrophy (MD) in the Midlands. Established in 2012, MDSC was set up and led by people with, or affected by, MD. From our main centre in Coventry, and with satellite clinics in Birmingham, the Black Country, and Leicester, we currently support over 450 adults with MD, by providing specialist physiotherapy, osteopathy and complementary therapies on a long-term basis. We are the only organisation in the Midlands region to do so, and one of only two in the UK.
In 2019 MDSC received monies from the National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) underpinning our 5-year strategy to increase our service user numbers and therapy hours offered. By 2025 we plan to be supporting over 1,100 people with MD and be providing therapy at two more satellite clinics in Worcestershire and Northamptonshire – improving access for people with MD in the Midlands to vital therapies that enable them to live well with their condition.
We currently receive around 37% of our income from NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (charitable activities income) and the remainder is voluntary income which the postholder will be responsible for (35% is from trusts and foundations, 19% from NLCF and the balance from service user donations / community fundraising).
The role of Head of Fundraising is a key leadership position, and its purpose is to inspire others and generate income. With the support of everyone within the Charity the post holder will be championed to meet income targets that will enable us to enhance and expand our services over the coming years.
This role would be great for an established Head of Fundraising, or a candidate who has deep trusts and foundations experience and who would like to build on and diversify their fundraising skills base, enhancing/ developing their leadership capabilities. The role offers a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with a small, highly dedicated team and to work with service users, allowing you to experience the direct impact of your work on the lives of our service users.
Before you start an application for this post, please ensure that you:
- Have read and understood the requirements of the role
- Meet all the essential criteria in the Person Specification
- Are available for and able to take part in an interview (details as to whether this will be face to face or online will be confirmed at the time of shortlisting) on Tuesday 12 July 2022, and a second stage interview on Wednesday 20 July 2022
