Four Square Scotland is an Edinburgh charity working for more than 40 years to prevent homelessness and promote inclusion. We provide services directly to people who are homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness to overcome any barriers they may face in creating a stable life for themselves in their community. At the core of Four Square are the values on which the organisation is based. These are equally applied to the people we support, our colleagues and our partners and are: Integrity; Excellence; Dignity; Support.

Alongside our support services we have social enterprises, which provide independent income for our charity as well as volunteering and training opportunities for those who use our services.

We are driven by our mission to ensure everyone has the opportunity to have a home and a place in their community.

The Role:

This role is a new role within Four Square and sits within the management team of the organisation. You will be the sole fundraiser for the charity, but will have scope to build a team and to draw on resources throughout the organisation.

Four Square has modernised and developed beyond recognition in the past three years. We have solid foundations in place and we are now in a position to grow our charity by scaling up the level of impact we have.

Fundraising is key to achieving this vision and we are looking for an individual who shares our passion, drive and enthusiasm for what we do.

Our current income streams are generated through the commissioned services we provide for the council; lottery funding; and the unrestricted income generated from our social enterprise. We want the successful candidate to focus initially on securing funding for some large-scale projects and then advising the Leadership Team on a fundraising strategy that will best support our strategic plan.

Trust and Foundations will be a key focus but we’d also like to pursue a new focus on corporate fundraising and major donor programmes.
