Fundraising and Partnership Officer
National office in Glasgow
35 hours per week – Permanent
£21,534 – £27,811 per annum
If you are motivated to create a society where children, young people and adults who have experienced Scotland’s care system feel included, championed, understood, active, equal, loved and most importantly that their voice matters then we want to hear from you.
Who Cares? Scotland is Scotland’s only national independent, representative organisation for care experienced people. We represent care experienced people through independent advocacy (up to 26 years of age); membership and influencing programmes. Our vision is for care experienced people to feel equal to their non-care-experienced peers. A crucial part of our representative role comes from the voices of our Membership as well as the experiences of those we support through advocacy.
With the First Minister recently committing to listening to 1000 care experienced voices in the next two-years, as well as commissioning the independent root and branch review of care in Scotland – it is vital that care experienced voices and experiences are amplified further and more regularly across Scotland. We are therefore recruiting for a range of roles at this very important and exciting time in Scotland across a variety of exciting programmes.
The postholder will play a key role in implementing the financial ambitions of Who Cares? Scotland. We believe social media will play an important part in this strategy, therefore the role will include a creative approach to reaching current and new organisation Friends.
The right candidate will have experience of grants and trust applications and relationship building with potential funders and donors. They must have previous fundraising experience in the Charity sector. The individual should be self-motivated, enthusiastic, and willing to engage with a flexible workforce that operate in an interesting and dynamic environment, with a high degree of job satisfaction.
They will contribute to the development and implementation of a fund-raising strategy with a real opportunity to bring a fresh approach and be creative within the role. The role is being offered on a full-time basis with a degree of flexible working hours as agreed with the Fundraising and Partnership Manager.
The closing date for all the posts is 4pm on Friday 2nd June. Interviews will be held on 27 June 2017.
