Aberdeen Foyer’s vision is for everyone to have a safe place to call home and what they need to thrive. We are on a mission to end poverty and prevent youth homelessness. We do this by supporting young people and adults across Northeast Scotland discover their potential, transform their lives, and shape their own positive futures.

Aberdeen Foyer is looking for a passionate, driven and creative individual to join us as a Fundraising Co-ordinator, supporting our Funding Manager. Working with colleagues across the Foyer you will engage, inspire, and collaborate with individuals, communities, and businesses to deliver fundraising initiatives and events to support achieving key fundraising targets.

You will be able to build positive relationships locally with individuals, businesses, groups, and associations and maintain these with thank you letters, updates, and invitations to events. You will be a compelling storyteller, able to motivate and influence others through presentations, conversations, and formal and informal written formats. You will understand the needs and motivations of fundraising volunteers and oversee volunteering opportunities for fundraising, and you will be able to track and report income for all fundraising activities. You will help us to increase our online presence and expand on our use of social media platforms to raise our profile within the community and meet our fundraising targets.

Fundraising allows us to add the sparkle to our services, to innovate and be agile in creating opportunities that meet people’s needs and aspirations. We are seeking someone who is passionate about the work of Aberdeen Foyer, our mission and our values and takes pride in delivering a great experience.

We would love if you can bring fundraising experience to the role, however we appreciate the role also may suit someone who is starting out in their career or wants to use their existing skills in a different way. The role will involve being present in the local area of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. We trust our staff to do the best job possible and so the role offers autonomy and an opportunity to be creative.
