Up to £26,326 per annum plus enhancement for unsocial hours worked (Dependant on Location)
35 hours per week

We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced and highly motivated Regional Fundraiser to join our national team.  To join us you must be able to demonstrate a successful track record of community-based fundraising and achievement of fundraising targets.  You will also need a track record of planning and delivering a programme of successful fundraising events and activities to engage and retain the target audience.  The ability to do all of this within budget and whilst achieving a good ROI is essential.

Whilst you will work as part of a national team, you should be used to working alone, on a day to day basis.  You will have experience of recruiting, developing and motivating volunteers, as well as experience of building positive relationships with local groups and community organisations.

This is an exciting opportunity to use your excellent interpersonal and fundraising skills and experience to maximise income and awareness of the charity and to engage our target audiences at a local level.

So, if you have a flexible approach to work, can travel across the region and at times nationally, then this could be the role for you.

This is a fabulous opportunity for the right individual to be part of a national team.

In return, we offer the opportunity to be part of a team that transforms lives.  We also offer a wide range of benefits and career development opportunities for the right candidate.
