About the Role
This is an exciting interim role to help Sands further develop and embed our community fundraising initiatives. As well as providing excellent stewardship of current supporters, you will also be integral to the management of a portfolio of regional and national partnerships with companies who have chosen Sands as their Charity of the Year.
We are looking for someone with a strong commitment to exceptional supporter care, with experience in community and/or corporate fundraising and who can hit the ground running. You will be well organised and have an enthusiastic and proactive approach, being just as happy working independently as you are working with the team.
This is a great opportunity to develop your fundraising skills within a supportive environment and ideally you will have experience in recruiting supporters and managing their journeys, keeping them motivated and connected with the cause. We are looking for someone who is creative, has an eye for detail, and is able to meet income and expenditure targets while managing their time effectively to meet tight deadlines. The role will also provide back-up support to colleagues within the Fundraising and Communications Department to optimise income, awareness and ensure the highest supporter experience.
Working closely with both the Senior Corporate and Trusts Fundraiser and Fundraising and Events Manager, this post will also provide an opportunity to increase corporate fundraising skills and experience, and gain an understanding of individual fundraising.
