Fundraising and Office Assistant
We are looking to recruit a passionate and committed Fundraising and Office Assistant to join our income generation team and support a growing individual giving programme.
We have been fortunate to attract significant support enabling us to help fund a range of hugely valuable programmes in Africa with long-term sustainability and are now looking to further develop and embed a culture of philanthropic giving across a wider donor spectrum.
We can therefore offer this fantastic opportunity to join a small, innovative team supporting our fundraising efforts and administering the donor database. Day-to-day activities will include office support and maintenance of the Salesforce database, administration to support the fundraising team and the all-important business of thanking donors. This role will also take the lead on small fundraising events and includes engagement with supporters taking on charity challenges for us.
We are looking for a highly organised individual who pays great attention to detail. Strong administrative experience, IT skills and the ability to work competently and manage a database are essential. A background in charity – specifically fundraising – would be a great asset (although we are willing to consider candidates from a range of backgrounds who can demonstrate transferable skills). Someone with drive and energy would be a great addition to the fundraising team.
This role offers a unique opportunity for growth and development; the chance to work with individual donors, manage fundraising events and work on high profile charity challenges such as the London Marathon. We are therefore also looking for someone with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to engage confidently and effectively with donors.
If you have the skills, experience and enthusiasm we are looking for, please send a copy of your CV to Amelia Lee at our recruitment partner, Charity People, for lots more detail on this terrific opportunity: Amelia@Charitypeople.co.uk
The closing date for this opportunity is Thursday 2nd March with a view to interviewing on Monday 13th March.
