Engaging the business community in support of Dundee’s young people
Helm are an award winning specialist youthwork organisation working with 200 young people a year in Dundee, enabling them to make great transitions into adult life.
We continue to diversify our support base and now want to appoint a Corporate Partnerships Lead who will take a leading role in developing and implementing a new corporate fundraising and support strategy for Helm. The post holder will work within a small successful fundraising team, and will have access to established reporting and database systems and administrative support.
This position could suit candidates from a wide range of professional backgrounds. However all candidates will need to be a “people person” with a passion to make a difference, who can bring their own lived experience of adversity to this role, and will have a track record in work which demonstrates great transferable skills. You will of course need to be a dedicated and motivated self-starter.

Helm are an award winning specialist youthwork organisation working with 200 young people a year in Dundee aged 15+, enabling them to make great transitions into adult life. We are a long established robust organisation, with great grassroots support in our community, and an enviable track record. Our vision is a Scotland where all young people dare to dream.

This is a brand new project, and a full factsheet is available in the candidate pack.
We are now ready to appoint a new Transition Lead to recruit and work alongside this team and who will have the additional responsibility of ensuring that all young people in the team develop accredited skills on the job, ensuring they can transition successfully into the next step for their career.
