Current vacancies

Senior Fundraising Officer

  • Full time
  • Circa £22,000 – £25,000
  • Home-based, with infrequent travel across England and Scotland
  • Closing 6th December 2020

Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK) is the UK’s leading snowsport charity. We have been teaching disabled people to ski and snowboard for over forty years and although like all charities we anticipate a challenging year ahead, we also have exciting plans.

At DSUK, we believe that teaching disabled people to master the slopes can transform the way they experience their disability. For our customers, it’s about enjoying achievement and independence. From picking their line to controlling their speed, they can experience something that’s often missing from their everyday lives – freedom.

Following a restructure, we are seeking a Senior Fundraising Officer to develop and lead on a range of activities including third-party, community and virtual events, and corporate fundraising. This is an exciting opportunity to join a values-led team and use your broad experience and excitement for what we do, to make this role your own.

We are looking for an adaptable, confident, and proactive individual who is people-focused and who possesses exceptional organisational skills. Above all you will be happy to share your ideas with the senior team and support the organisation to try new ways of fundraising, whilst providing a sound business case for doing so.
