Charity People are delighted to be working to find a talented Community Fundraiser to join a fantastic national health charity covering Hertfordshire and join it's already successful fundraising team. You will be based in their Hertfordshire Office, though there is flexibility to work from home one day a week. This Charity provides care and support through terminal illness making sure that every day counts.

The role exists to build and develop fundraising relationships in the community, by providing excellent stewardship and support to their Fundraising Groups and Volunteers, in order to increase income and deliver the agreed Community Fundraising strategy. You will also have responsibility to grow the corporate partnerships within the region with applications of up to £100,000.

A key element of your role will be to support, develop and inspire volunteers and fundraising groups to ensure local fundraising activity is as effective as possible in delivering the maximum benefit for the charity. Your work will include supporting and delivering the local running of national campaigns, through relationships built with individuals, groups, associations and companies. This will involve inducting, training and managing volunteers along with attending events. You will be responsible for proactively growing the network of groups and individuals who want to fundraise for Marie Curie, so this is a very people-focused role, requiring a lot of time in the field, organising as many meetings as possible, and nurturing these relationships.

We are looking for someone with insight into how community fundraising works, supported by a good and demonstrable range of relationship building skills. You may have worked in the charity sector, event marketing, sales, or PR. But more important is your ability to use your sound communication and supporter relationship skills, to ensure that we continue to maintain and grow the income across the Hertfordshire area.

We are ideally looking for someone who can hit the ground running with experience of recruiting and managing volunteers and fundraising groups, and a track record of raising funds in a community setting; this can be in a paid or voluntary basis and could be from someone who has worked in a related discipline (e.g. PR, marketing, sales, project management etc.). You could also come from the corporate sector and be able to utilise transferable skills.

This is a really exciting opportunity to work with a leading National charity in a broad community based role. If you are looking for a role in which you can develop a variety of fundraising skills and experience across community, events and corporate fundraising then this is a fantastic opportunity with a lot of potential.

They are looking to appoint at £26-28,000, with the opportunity to grow in this role to achieve the upper band of the salary. The application deadline is Friday 24th January, with a cover letter necessary.

We actively encourage people from ethnic minorities and LGBTQ+ Individuals to apply for this role. Charity People actively promotes equality, diversity and inclusion. We match charity needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), race, religion or belief, gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, or sexual orientation. We do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for the charities we work with.

If you are not interested but know anyone suitable for this role then we do offer a £250 referral fee if successful.

If you'd like to be considered for this role please send your (word doc) CV to pete@charitypeople.co.uk.
