Visualise Scotland enables adults with disabilities to live independent and fulfilling lives. We do this through providing care at home, supported housing and day services in Edinburgh and East Lothian. We are a relatively small organisation with a team of 80 staff and 21 supported individuals. Currently our services are funded almost exclusively through local government.
This is an exciting time to join Visualise as restrictions ease and the people we support start to re-engage with their communities. As we start to build back from the pandemic, we are embarking on a new strategy and looking to diversify our income and funding base. We have received a grant for one year from the Adapt and Thrive programme for a new fundraising position. Initially contracted for 10 days per month, you will support Visualise to build our unrestricted income, through grants, engagement with the private sector, trusts, foundations and fundraising events.
As our new Visualise Fundraiser, you will be our fundraising lead to ensure Visualise achieves a range of funding over the next 12 months. You will work with colleagues and the Board of Trustees on the development of a fundraising strategy to support Visualise’s financial sustainability.
This is a 12 months fixed term contract, with a possible extension dependent on achievement of funding targets.
You have experience with the private sector, including an understanding of companies’ corporate social responsibility plans, have a track record of successful grant and funding applications and be confident in raising Visualise’s profile in Edinburgh. You have the skills to develop a fundraising strategy across a range of income streams.
