We are offering a wonderful opportunity for a driven and focused individual to join the Quarriers fundraising team as Community Fundraiser. Quarriers provides practical care and support for vulnerable children, adults and families who face extremely challenging circumstances across Scotland. We challenge poverty and inequality of opportunity to bring about positive changes in people’s lives.

The Fundraising, Grants and Business Development Teams raise funds to support this great work and the role of Community Fundraiser is an integral part of that. The post would be suited to someone who is ambitious, and has the ability to develop and build strong and sustainable relationships with key stakeholders and has the ability and confidence to develop relationships in the fundraising sector.

This position would ideally suit someone who is currently working in a Fundraising or special events focused role, experienced in relationship management, with good knowledge and experience of the principles of Community Fundraising and with a background in managing volunteers and events as a part of that role. You should have excellent written and oral communications skills, with the ability to influence and persuade and to write compelling proposals to showcase the impact the fundraised income can achieve for the organisation. You should have great presentation and public speaking skills and experience of working with people at all levels within organisations.

We are looking for someone with experience in a similar role, able to demonstrate a strong knowledge and experience of Community fundraising and engagement, confident in developing new innovative ideas and stewarding existing supporters and events.

You should be energetic, enthusiastic, ideas-driven and willing to work collaboratively. This organisation is very keen to find someone keen on throwing themselves into the role in order to gain a comprehensive knowledge about the specifics of the sector.

Quarriers Fundraising, Grants and Business Development department is an exciting place to work with a motivated and energetic team, which is strongly supported by the executive team and board of trustees.

We motivate and facilitate supporters to maximise the funds they raise. Inspire new supporters to engage with Quarriers, while maintaining and developing relationships with existing supporters, as well as developing new and imaginative fundraising activities and initiatives, some of which may involve organising events.
