Community and Event Fundraiser

Date: 16th December 2022

We’re Hiring!

Do you have a track record of income generation success, an enthusiasm for event management, be really well organised, have lots of energy and inspire those around you? If yes, Down’s Syndrome Scotland has a fantastic opportunity for a committed individual to join our Fundraising Team…

The Community and Event Fundraiser will report to the Fundraising Manager, and will have specific responsibilities to deliver on key projects areas.

The successful candidate will be the main point of contact for those wishing to raise funds for or support the charity across Scotland, and will be responsible for proactively generating income by engaging community support through a varied programme of relationship focused activities across different fundraising disciplines such as, but not exclusive to, events & campaigns, digital and community fundraising. In addition, you will be required to demonstrate and report on outcomes measured against an agreed set of income generating KPIs.

Experience of all these disciplines is desirable, but not essential. We are looking for people with transferable skills who can learn quickly and work on projects with the Fundraising Manager and other staff throughout the organisation, to sustain and grow Down’s Syndrome Scotland’s service provision throughout Scotland.

This post is home-based with a mix of online and face to face work involving travel across Scotland. Evening and, on occasion, weekend work will be required, for which time off in lieu will be authorised.

CLOSING DATE: Sunday 8th January @17:00hrs

INTERVIEW DATES: 16th or 17th January 2023
