Are you a fundraiser looking for your next challenge? Would you like to work for an international charity? Yes? Then we want to hear from you.

As a Community Fundraiser at JDRF you will be joining a charity leading the way in type 1 diabetes research. You will be the lead fundraiser for the Aberdeen Gala Ball, the flagship JDRF One Walk and the JDRF One Fun Run.

You will steward third party supporters in Scotland, thanking them for their hard work, offering help with their fundraising endeavours, and strengthening existing relationships, and creating new ones. You’ll also identify and develop corporate partnerships across the region.

You will be a team player, who enjoys working within a small but busy team, have superb written and verbal communication skills, be digitally literate and skilled at using various social media channels. You’ll have excellent creative, time management and planning skills.

Our supporters range from adults with type 1, to parents of children recently diagnosed, and more long term supporters who have lived with type 1 diabetes in their lives a while. Once they have the connection to type 1, they can become lifelong supporters, so your role is important to keep them involved, supported and part of the JDRF family.

Ideally you will have previous experience of either fundraising, organising events or working in a sales and marketing environment.

  • A strong, positive and friendly culture
  • Flexible working
  • Generous annual leave entitlement start at 25 and bank holidays
  • A Health Cash Plan
