Top job! Head of Fundraising

  • Full time
  • £37,867 – £42,630
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 4th March 2019

BTA (Bruce Tait Associates) are delighted to be working with Four Square in their search for a Head of Fundraising.

For 40 years, homelessness charity Four Square has worked tirelessly to ensure that Everyone has the opportunity to have a home and a place in their community.

Known for its innovation in homeless accommodation and incredibly successful social enterprises, Four Square offers a range of services across four main themes: accommodation, advocacy and advice, training and employment, enterprise and sustainability.

Under the leadership of a new CEO, there is a new strategy, vision and ambition for the future. The sky is the limit both in terms of expanding the offer to people who need support and in taking the social enterprise models beyond Edinburgh.

Key to the success is a recent re-structure of the charity, which has created a new leadership team and some new supporting roles.

If you are driven, dynamic and want to be part of a charity that has a strong reputation and is really going places, then this could be the organisation for you.

Four Square has relied on statutory funding, low level grant giving and its social enterprises for its income. This new role in the leadership team has the specific remit of kick-starting Four Square’s fundraising function.

You will write and deliver the strategy that will allow the charity to explore new areas of funding for the first time, appointing a fundraising team further down the line. There are plans to launch a significant capital appeal in the future so if you wish to add this to your portfolio, this is a wonderful opportunity to do so.

You will be an experienced and highly successful Fundraiser with proven ability in securing income from multiple channels. In addition, as you will be part of an impressive new leadership team that will be shaping the future of the charity, you will need to add value beyond your fundraising responsibilities.

If you have the drive and ambition to propel the charity, and your career, forwards to a positive future, we want to hear from you.
