Role

Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that they can love later life.

We support and enable hundreds of community and older people’s groups across Scotland. We provide information, friendship and advice through our free helpline and publications. We tackle loneliness and isolation with our Friendship Line and much more.

We work in Scotland with older people’s groups who provide vital activities and services for older people in their local community. We campaign on the issues that older people tell us are important to them.

Our Fundraising Team are looking for a Corporate Fundraiser to provide maternity cover over 9-12 months. The successful post-holder will develop and implement a corporate partnership fundraising strategy to develop new corporate relationships, including charity of the year, and maintain and develop existing corporate partnerships in order to meet fundraising targets.

Another key aspect of the role is to work collaboratively with relevant Age UK colleagues, particularly on joint funding approaches to potential corporate partners.

If you have the skills, experience and ambition required to fulfil this role, then please apply now.

In return for your expertise and commitment to our values you’ll receive a generous holiday allowance, a range of learning and development opportunities, optional healthcare benefits and a contributory pension scheme with employer contributions of up to 9%.

The post will be a blend of office-based (in Edinburgh) and home-based work.

Due to the Covid outbreak in the UK, we have adapted our way of working to ensure the ongoing delivery of services, while minimising risk to our employees. Depending on guidance from the Scottish Government regarding the lifting of lockdown restrictions, this role may initially be completely home based, incorporating office work and face to face contact when it is safe to do so.
