Fundraising Manager - Berkshire
In the 1960s, 7 in 10 people died of their heart attack. Today, thanks to medical breakthroughs, 7 in 10 survive. Since we were founded, our research has helped turn the tide on heart disease About the role We are currently looking for a tenacious relationship manager to support our community fundraising activity across Berkshire. As a result of increasing the number of Fundraising Managers we have split our previous Surrey & Berkshire patch and so the successful candidate will have the opportunity to put Berkshire on the map for Community Fundraising. Our team has ambitious targets to help us in our fight for every heartbeat and we are investing in our team to help us achieve these goals. You'll maximise income and awareness for the BHF within your patch by proactively securing and managing community fundraising partnerships and recruiting and managing networks of fundraising groups, supporters and volunteers. You'll proactively build and develop fundraising groups, recruiting individual volunteers and supporters; securing fundraising partnerships; and delivering national campaigns, local projects and maximising community engagement. This role focuses particularly on building strong relationships with businesses who can or already give support to the BHF locally, offering organisations incredible opportunities to continue and grow their support, and with that, their ability to keep more hearts beating in their community. About you The successful candidate will have a proven track record in fundraising at a community level or strong evidence of transferable experience, for example an outstanding track record in sales or account management. You'll have excellent communication, networking and relationship building skills. This role provides a brilliant opportunity for a candidate to transition from a local charity to gain experience with one with nationally recognised brand presence. Or for an ambitious sales person who is an expert in their field, to use their transferable skills to help our vision become a reality. We're brave, informed, driven and compassionate in our fight against heart disease and, if that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you. You'll need to have a full UK driving licence plus previous experience of working remotely and be able to demonstrate an ability to manage and motivate yourself.
