You will have experience on developing and delivering on strategies for community fundraising and can demonstrate maximising the potential from mass participation events, individual fundraisers and other community fundraising activities. You will enjoy building processes that create high quality customer experiences.

You will be comfortable with targets and driven to exceed these and grow the support of the charity.

You will be a team player as well as being comfortable working autonomously and be excited to contribute to the wider team’s activities as fundraising grows in the charity.

We are looking for someone who is people-focussed and loves making connections in the community and actively seeking opportunities and maximising those. Someone with the energy and drive to establish and build a diverse and successful community fundraising area in our charity.

You will be friendly and outgoing with an eye for opportunities and thrive on the multiple interactions with our supporters in this role. You will be someone who is ambitious to grow and develop new income streams and doesn’t mind mucking in and getting things done.
