Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.
When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community.
We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.
We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
We’re looking for a highly motivated, organised and enthusiastic individual to join our Regional Fundraising Team in Scotland. This is an exciting fast paced role, where no two days are the same.
You’ll recruit regional corporate partners and support a network of “in aid of” supporters who will carry out their own fundraising so that income generation targets are achieved. You'll also manage and deliver our local Resolution Runs and other products and events, in partnership with our National Events Team.
You will also play an integral part in recruiting volunteers, in partnership with the Volunteering and Community Team, and building relationships with Stroke Association Voluntary Groups.
You will either have direct experience of regional fundraising, or transferable skills from another sector, such as sales. This would also be a great job for someone in a regional fundraising assistant role who is looking to take the next step to manage their own portfolio of supporters, partnerships and events.
The successful candidate will:
• Be an excellent communicator and relationship builder
• Be confident in proactively contacting supporters via phone, email and face to face.
• Need to be a team player.
• Be a self-starter, with the ability to work unsupervised.
• Have a desire to network and seek out new partnership opportunities with local businesses
• Be pro-active and flexible.
• Resilient and good-humoured.
• Be prepared to organise and manage a busy workload to meet deadlines.
The use of a car with business use cover and the ability to drive is essential to be able to fulfil the requirements of the role.

This is an exciting time to join the Stroke Association. If you think you have the skills and aptitude for the role, we would love to hear from you. This role will be based in either our Edinburgh or Glasgow office or home based in appropriate area.
