Role

Scottish Refugee Council (SRC) is an independent charity, supporting people in need of refugee protection. The people they work with have fled horrific situations around the world and come from countries where conflict is rife and human rights abuses common. When these people arrive in Scotland, a new journey begins. The UK’s asylum system is tough and takes its toll on individuals and families. Settling into a foreign country and a whole new system can be disorientating and challenging.

Through SRC’s direct services, they provide practical support, advice, and a listening ear to help people rebuild their lives in a sustainable and meaningful way. SRC work with communities and community groups, they speak out against an unjust asylum system, and campaign for policy changes that make a positive difference to people’s lives. This incredible charity stands with people seeking protection and are inspired by the many ways refugee communities have enriched Scottish culture and society.

The opportunity has arisen for a Corporate Engagement and Fundraising Officer (CEFO) to join the SRC team. As the CEFO, you will engage with a range of corporate organisations and partners across the UK, building mutually beneficial relationships, with the aim of maximising income to support SRC’s work with refugees in Scotland. You will be supported by the Fundraising Manager to implement a rolling programme of researching new business engagement and giving opportunities. You will work to develop and deliver pitches, plan and coordinate partner stewardship journeys, and manage your accounts to generate income as per agreed targets. The CEFO should have the ability to deliver a corporate strategy, including meeting agreed targets and objectives. Experience in business-to-business engagement and an ability to broker partnerships is a critical skill for this role. You should have a proven ability in achieving income targets as well as a track record of effective prospect research. You should have experience in copywriting and marketing across a number of channels including social media, print and broadcast media.

SRC are looking for an honest, empathetic, approachable, and enthusiastic individual to take up the Corporate Engagement and Fundraising Officer position. You should have the ability to work independently, with a flexible approach to working conditions. The right candidate for the role will be able to display a commitment to achieve SRC’s mission and values, as well as a willingness and ability to travel and attend weekend meetings/events, and to participate in some out of hours work. The successful candidate should hold a relevant degree or have equivalent professional experience.
