This is an exciting time to join the growing team at Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity.   We are recruiting for a committed Individual Giving/Digital Fundraising Officer to generate and grow income to support the charity's work.

The case around the need to support people of all ages with dyslexia is compelling. About 1 in 10 people have a degree of dyslexia, and this can affect people’s lives in a fundamental way. If not addressed correctly, it can leave people feeling like failures, and choosing negative paths in life. Whereas if the right help is provided, people can learn to use their dyslexia extremely positively, and as a strong advantage in life. The key is to get the right help, advice and support. And always to remember that everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Don’t we all?

We are committed to further increasing our reach and impact over the next 5 years, with the aim of more than doubling the number of beneficiaries we support, and particularly to assist significantly more people who are from lower-income backgrounds.  In order to achieve this, we have created the important role of Individual Giving/Digital Fundraising Officer.

You will work closely with our Fundraising & Communications team based at our Surrey centre with the option of working from home.  Our team of staff and volunteers are brilliant and our reputation is second to none. We have a growing number of people joining the Helen Arkell family. This is hardly surprising, as we provide support to over a thousand people with dyslexia each year, and many of these see their first contact with us as a life-changing moment.

This is a great opportunity for someone who connects with our values and wants to make a significant impact by raising funds to support the great work we do.

We do hope you feel inspired to be part of our journey and look forward to receiving your application.
