We are proud to be working with Action For Children to recruit a Community Fundraiser for their Berks, Hants & IoW region. This is an amazing opportunity to become part of a charity which does what's right, does what's needed and does what works for children across the UK. Every year, their team changes the lives of 370,000 children, young people and their families – but for every child who needs help to get help, there's plenty more to do.
You will manage projects and activities across the region in conjunction with the Senior Fundraiser, whilst building and managing efficient and effective relationships and communications with donors and volunteers to raise funds for Action for Children as effectively as possible.
There's plenty of scope for growth and personal development within this role and the team, so we're looking for an ambitious and driven individual with a penchant for communication, relationship management and great organisational skills.
You'll need confidence in your ability to work with the local community: local corporates, individuals, local community groups and church partnership. As well as previous experience of developing and managing relevant activities or projects, and successfully communicating (both verbal and written) with a variety of audiences. You will also need access to a car, although the role is homebased, the geographical region covered will be Berkshire, Hampshire and the Isle of White. Due to logistical reasons the succesful candidate won't be able to be based from IoW.
Ideally you will had had some professional experience of working in the charity sector, or if not, then have had fundraising experience yourself. You will have a confident telephone manner and ability to approach all types of clients and community groups. We are looking for a bubbly and energetic individual, passionate about the incredible work that Action for Children does.
