Honeypot seeks a talented Corporate and Community Fundraising Manager for Scotland
Founded 26 years ago, the Honeypot Children’s Charity has developed from a local, to regional to being a National Charity that spans, large areas of the UK.
Our latest expansion, the opening of our Residential Respite House, The Old School Dalleagles, New Cumnock, Ayrshire will support young carers living in the Central Belt of Scotland. Young carers are children aged 5 to 12 who look after a sick or disabled parent or sibling. There are 800,000 young carers in England and Wales and 100,000 in Scotland. There is a great need for our Support Services.
Honeypot Scotland presents a wonderful opportunity to develop fundraising for our charity. Honeypot raised £2.7 Million in 2021-22, and our fundraising income has been rising consistently for several years. This has been achieved due to our well established and winning brand, our unique range of highly fundable services, and a dynamic and go-getting professional Honeypot staff.
Corporate and Community Fundraising has always been an area of fundraising where Honeypot has succeeded. Honeypot has had such Corporate Supporters as:- a £1M COTY partnership with Bank of America; A National Campaign with The Body Shop, A major Partnership with Munich Re, a portfolio of over 50 leading company’s in long term funding relationships with Honeypot. Honeypot has also succeeded in Community fundraising, receiving substantial support from The Masons Grand Charity; Golf Clubs; leading public schools such as Eton College. We now seek to replicate this success over time in Scotland.
“There is nothing more motivating for donors than to visit a Honeypot House, to see children on a visit or just to see the high quality of the facilities we provide.
As Corporate and Community Fundraising Manager for Scotland, conducting site visits of Honeypot House Dalleagles, as and when they are needed, will be a key role.
There may be an opportunity to develop a small number of key events in Scotland, such as a carol concert or challenge event participation, such as the Glasgow Marathon. You will be the lead for these events both organising and attending them”.
Supported by Honeypot’s Director of Income & Communications, and our Digital Marketing & Social Media Team, and a collegiate team of seven fundraisers based in England , the Corporate and Community Fundraiser, Scotland will enjoy be strongly supported and working for a forward looking, ambitious and growing Children’s Charity.
If you relish occupying an exciting new role with massive potential for success, that will give you much leeway to manage your own success while being highly supported by a dynamic team, we would love to hear from you.
To assist with travel costs and due to the remote location, there is a self-contained apartment which can be made available to facilitate overnight stays, if events or meetings are scheduled at the house.
