Fundraiser role:

As our new Visualise Fundraiser, you will be our fundraising lead to ensure Visualise achieves a range of funding over the next 12 months. You will work with colleagues and the Board of Trustees on the development of a fundraising strategy to support Visualise’s financial sustainability.

This is a 12 months fixed term contract, with a possible extension dependent on achievement of funding targets.

Your experience:

You have experience with the private sector, including an understanding of companies’ corporate social responsibility plans, have a track record of successful grant and funding applications and be confident in raising Visualise’s profile in Edinburgh. You have the skills to develop a fundraising strategy across a range of income streams.
