 Who Cares? Scotland is the country’s only national independent, representative membership organisation for Care Experienced people.  Our vision is of a Lifetime of Equality, Respect and Love for Care Experienced people. If you have experience as a Fundraiser and share this vision, this could be the role for you!

The post is a key position within Who Cares? Scotland and will work closely with the Senior Management Team to develop and implement strategies for income generation which contribute to the ongoing sustainability of the organisation and allow it to pursue its vision of a lifetime of equality, respect and love for Care Experienced people.

You will lead on all fundraising activity across a range of income streams including individual giving and high net worth donors; community fundraising; corporate partnerships, trusts and foundations, and events. You will be required to develop creative, compelling fundraising propositions for a range of audiences, supported by internal and external communications strategies. You will also engage audiences with bids and proposals, make successful presentations and pitches, and organise cultivation and stewardship events. You will carry out research and analysis to inform the development and implementation of a fundraising pipeline, for both project funding and unrestricted income.

You will have experience of leading fundraising initiatives as well as bid-writing and/ or creating and delivering sales pitches that were successful to the value of over £100k per annum. You will also be able to demonstrate success as a fund-raiser, generating significant donation income of more than £300k p/a from income streams such as individual giving; corporate fundraising; community fundraising; events and trusts and foundations.

If this sounds like you, and you want to be part of delivering change for Care Experienced people across Scotland, we’d love to hear from you. For an informal conversation about this opportunity please call Marie-Claire Jones, Director of Corporate Services on 07715 312015.
