Role

The Fire Fighters Charity offers specialist, lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community, empowering people to achieve mental, physical and social wellbeing throughout their lives. We provide confidential, personalised support to the whole of the fire services community, whether that’s at our centres, over the phone, online or out in communities.

Our Community Fundraiser will inspire the vibrant and diverse communities within West Scotland & Northern Ireland, to unite to support their fire community. You’ll join a nation-wide team of inspiring and innovative fundraisers, working collaboratively to secure the much-needed income for the Charity.

By building relationships with the fire and rescue services in your area, you’ll become an integral part of the local fire services community. Helping to coordinate events, support fundraising initiatives and implement new ideas, you’ll support your people, stations, and communities to raise awareness of the Charity and achieve and exceed income targets, as well as working with local businesses and people to maximise our fundraising potential.

You’ll be responsible for maximising the potential fundraising income from every initiative you support, so you must be able to effectively engage with multiple stakeholders and build strong networks.

You’ll also be able to support and inspire our volunteers, ensuring that these vital links between our Charity and the fire and rescue services are happy and fulfilled in their roles.

Reporting to our Fundraising Manager, you’ll be an excellent communicator with exceptional organisational skills and a ‘can do’ attitude.
