Job description
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

A small mental health charity needs funds - and now needs an experienced Fundraising Co-ordinator.

We help adults to develop their personal emotional wellbeing management plan to provide an effective mental illness prevention service.

The South Staffordshire Network for Mental Health (SSNMH), a registered charity, aims to improve the quality of life for individuals residing in the six districts of South Staffordshire who have personal experience of mental distress.  

The charity has developed a free of charge, self-empowering, emotional wellbeing signposting service known as Toolbox, which due to Covid restrictions, has been successfully transitioned into a fully online service – now reaching beyond geographical boundaries.

This structured process helps adult individuals to: become more aware of their emotional wellbeing status; define their own personal support network; construct personal coping strategies; and identifies further wellbeing tools, techniques and services that may be helpful.   With their own Toolbox plan people are more self-empowered, recognise their strengths and are able to maintain good resilient emotional wellbeing.

SSNMH’s income is predominantly grant-based, with some additional income from charitable giving and our consultancy work delivering training. The Fundraising Co-ordinator will work with senior leadership team to develop the charity’s ongoing fundraising strategy and explore ways of diversifying the charity’s income streams.

The role will be responsible for developing and executing the fundraising strategy, working with the senior leadership team and project officers to ensure the ongoing financial health of the charity. 

We are looking for passion, motivation and a willingness to improve mental health services; someone who is able to use SSNMH’s existing reputation with local GPs, NHS service groups and other charities to make a compelling case for the unique contribution that the charity makes to the sector. You will need to be able to tell the story of who we are, what we can achieve and where we want to go.

The role will be overseen and managed by the charity’s Trustee Board. The role will be home-based.

 We will consider applications for remote working from across England, Scotland and Wales. 

In your application please show how your skills and experience will contribute to the charity's fundraising aims.
