Full Time, 35 hours per week
Camden, London

In the UK there are more than 1.3 million children and young people living with a disability and nearly four million children living in poverty. This charity exists to improve the lives of these children.

They provide practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference, which includes grants for specialist equipment as well as accessible transport used by schools and other non-profit organisations across the UK. Their Great Days Out are also legendary.

The impact of the Covid pandemic on their event income has highlighted the importance of growing even further their other income streams, and they have approved new investment in fundraising and communications to strengthen the team and its performance.

They aim to double non-event fundraising income over the coming five years, create a sustainable fundraising programme for the long-term and bring about a culture change that sees non - event fundraising income take an equally important role alongside their event fundraising income.

The Head of Fundraising and Communications is a pivotal appointment for the charity in achieving that ambition.

The position will join their leadership team and be responsible for delivering a transformation in their fundraising activity, performance, and positioning.

This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional senior fundraiser to join an ambitious and passionate children’s charity and play a pivotal role in helping the charity grow its services for children and young people across the UK.

They are looking for someone who excels at relationships fundraising, (particularly as they seek to maximise on their corporate and major donor work), has strong leadership and communications skills with multi-income stream experience. The successful candidate will lead by example undertaking as well as directing the fundraising. They will develop the charity’s fundraising income, grow and influence the future growth of the fundraising and communications team, and be a key member of the senior management team.
