We are a local charity supporting people with a learning disability and their carers. Everything we do is about supporting people to be as independent as possible, helping them to stay safe and doing everything we can to make sure people have enjoyable lives. To help us in our current work and to enable us to do more for the people we support, we're looking for an experienced fundraiser with a track record in securing funds and who can work on their own initiative within an operating framework. The ideal candidate must have good knowledge of Institute of Fundraising guidelines and of the charity sector. They must be able to manage a busy and varied workload, have excellent people skills and be confident to take ownership of income targets. They will be required to seek out as well as organise various fundraising opportunities to engage with and secure income from individuals, groups and organisations. If you think you have the right attitude for this type of work and you want to make a difference to people’s lives then we would really like to hear from you.
