The Opportunity

We are looking for a talented individual to join the successful South East fundraising team. Based primarily working from home, you will be responsible for a geographic location within a reasonable travelling distance within the South East. The South East region covers Kent, Surrey and Sussex and therefore will need to be living, or plan to live within the region.

This role would suit someone who is keen to ground themselves in a fundraising career. Given the variety of fundraising techniques incorporated into the role it is unique in that the candidate will work across not one but up to ten income streams including: corporate, community, major donor, trust, events, schools and several others.

To support this, you will benefit from an organisation that puts professional development at the heart of its work (we have a full time Learning and Development Manager) and also runs a number of training courses and sessions run by our in-house specialists in: trusts fundraising, challenge events, corporate and major gift fundraising to name a few.

You will be motivated by meeting the many and varied demands of a busy and driven supporter-led fundraising operation. Adept at building relationships with a range of supporters and volunteers from across the region, you will be a problem solver, results driven and passionate about driving things forwards.

Responsibilities & Requirements

To maximise the fundraising potential for the region and contribute to the regional budget and target by achieving and surpassing targets.

To provide fundraising support to all supporters across the region.

To help supporters in their communities develop fundraising events and activities into continuing and sustainable sources of income for our campaign.

Principally you will travel extensively across your patch using your own home offices as your base.

We need a passionate, target-driven individual who has fundraising experience or who possesses the necessary transferrable skills to really 'hit the ground running' as there are already a large number of events and relationships in place that need continued attention. It is essential that you would also be able to deliver new opportunities and new business in order to continue to develop the region as a whole to help us deliver some remarkable services for young people with cancer across the South East region.
