Our vision is to transform lives with music. By growing children's orchestras in areas of deprivation our mission is to transform children's lives with music, empower communities and grow future orchestras.
Sistema Scotland’s vision is to transform lives with music. We deliver our work through the creation of Big Noise programmes within communities, and currently run four programmes in Raploch in Stirling, Govanhill in Glasgow, Torry in Aberdeen and Douglas in Dundee.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our Big Noise Raploch team as the Operations Manager supporting the Head of Centre, and as part of the Big Noise Raploch Senior Team, to ensure high quality procedures, processes and operational functions are embedded to maximise the success of the programme.
A skilled project manager, you will also have experience of working with children/young people and volunteers, and will have a passion for music, along with the belief in the impact and transformative power it has for children and the wider community.
Sistema Scotland is seeking to recruit a passionate Fundraising Officer to join its highly successful fundraising team, enabling children and families to benefit from the pioneering Big Noise programmes.
You will be a key player in our skilled and experienced fundraising team, maximising income from funders by preparing innovative and compelling applications and reports. You will maintain excellent relationships with funders and partners, meeting all application and reporting deadlines and ensuring that funders are kept fully engaged and informed on developments within the organisation.
Educated to degree level (or equivalent experience), you will have experience of raising significant income for charities, and composing convincing applications to trusts and foundations. You will also have excellent written and verbal communication skills, with experience of managing relationships with funders and stakeholders. Excellent IT skills, including MS Office and Access thankQ (or a similar fundraising CRM), are also essential.
This is a permanent post, working 2.5 days a week (working pattern to be agreed). The role forms part of the central team, based in Raploch, Stirling, with some flexibility for home working (staff are currently working from home due to Scottish Government guidance).
