Reporting to: Fundraising Manager, Choirs Support Team
Hours: 22.5 hours per week
Salary: £21,000 per annum (pro-rata)
Location: Central London, although currently home-based working. Flexible working will be considered.
Background & Role Summary
With 72 choirs and nearly 2,000 members in British military bases across the UK and internationally, the Military Wives Choirs is a charity that brings all women in the military community, not only wives, closer together and empowers them through singing. Families of service personnel move around frequently and it can often be tough to put down roots or make new friends, particularly when loved ones are away for long periods of time. Research shows that singing in a choir can help to alleviate stress and can contribute to an improvement in mental health.
The Military Wives Choirs therefore have a vital role to play by bringing women in the military community together to sing, share and support one another. In this role you will have responsibility for supporting the charity’s engagement with all key stakeholders, while working to develop and deliver fundraising income that will help us survive and thrive. This is a varied role and it would suit a confident and experienced communicator who relishes being busy and creative. Location is currently home based, with longer term expectation to be within a commutable distance of the City of London.
