We are recruiting for a well loved charity based in Sheffield who are looking to extend the successful fundraising team.

This is a new position and will suit someone that has the drive, ambition and compassion to make it their own and develop as the role develops.

You will be supporting families through bereavement so sensitivity, compassion and empathy is a must whilst also being able to work on behalf of the organisation and the strategic and financial objectives.

To be successful you will need to have at least 1 years fundraising experience and the ability to converse at all levels, remain level headed in highly emotive situations and have commercial acumen.
