If you are interested in a rewarding job with an established local charity involved in the relief of poverty, hardship and hunger in Stirlingshire then this could be the job for you!

Start Up Stirling is seeking to appoint an energetic and compassionate person to aid our Communities and Fundraising Manager and expand our fundraising and community engagement.

About Start Up Stirling

Our charity began in 1994 when a group of local churches started to collect donated household goods and redistribute them to people who had been homeless and were moving into social housing. In response to growing local need we started our foodbank service in 2012 in an effort to tackle food insecurity and hunger. In 2017 we introduced an additional pilot service that offers additional tailored support for people experiencing hardship in Stirlingshire.

The whole operation, including our Board of Trustees, is run by volunteers (currently around 110), supported by a small group of paid staff. We work closely with a network of around thirty-five local referral partners, including Citizens Advice Bureau, Women’s Aid, Salvation Army Rural Housing, NHS, Stirling Council and local schools to identify those people that need our support and help.

What are we looking for in a Community Fundraiser?

We are seeking an innovative fundraiser who is creative, driven, and full of energy to share exciting ideas on how Start up Stirling can grow community fundraising throughout the Stirling Council Area.

The new Community Fundraiser will work closely and collaboratively with the team at Start up Stirling to help develop and manage the programme of community fundraising and events. You should be an excellent communicator with the ability to engage with donors and inspire supporters while developing and cultivating relationships. As this is a diverse role, you should be able to manage priorities and work to deadlines while achieving results.
