Hope House has a unique opportunity available for an Area Fundraiser to join the team based in Conwy covering North Wales. The role is a full time permanent position, however part time working may be considered. We are offering the Area Fundraiser a salary of £23,098 - £28,942 per annum plus car allowance if applicable.

We're a charity that cares for children with serious conditions, who aren't expected to live longer than early adulthood. We help them enjoy the best possible quality of life and be as comfortable, happy and fulfilled as they can. We support their parents and families too, who often find it hard to cope. All our services are free, but to carry on funding them we need to raise over £6 million every year - almost all of it through the local community and our network of charity shops makes an important contribution to this fundraising challenge.

Our fundraisers have to actively pitch for support from businesses, individuals and organisations to ensure we're here for children who are affected by conditions so serious that they're not expected to live longer than early adulthood.

What are the responsibilities of the Area Fundraiser?

- We are seeking an enthusiastic self-starter with a proven track record in professional fundraising and/or sales who can help us raise the vital income we need by:

- Generating new business through recruiting, managing and developing new corporate and community supporters;

- Motivating and influencing supporters, ensuring their long term support for the Charity;

- Maximising attendance at Hope House events, challenges and activities.

What do we look for in an Area Fundraiser?

- Exceed targets and work to KPI's

- Communicate and build relationships with a diverse range of people face to face and by telephone

- Bounce back from rejection

- Effectively manage budgets and multi-task to meet tight deadlines

- A full driving licence together with the flexibility to work frequent evenings and weekends are also essential.

- Welsh speaking desirable but not essential.

Closing date: Friday 28th April 2017
