Head of Fundraising, Brook

Are you passionate about young people's wellbeing? Are you a successful fundraiser and income generator?

Brook is the only charity working across the UK that specialises in working with young people to promote their sexual health, in the wider context of health and wellbeing. For over 50 years, we have been delivering free and confidential clinical services, education, counselling, advice and campaigns to improve the sexual health and wellbeing of young people. Last year we helped 787,803 young people and 99% of young people said they would refer a friend to Brook.

We are entering a new strategic phase and a period of growth and are looking to expand our fundraising team and recruit a Head of Fundraising. This is a new role, leading on the growth and diversification of Brook's income through grant funding from trusts, foundations and other funding bodies.

Reporting into our Director of Business Development, as Head of Fundraising you will be joining a well-established senior management team. You will be responsible for growing Brook's income, working with colleagues across the organisation. You will support income diversification, innovation and business growth by identifying and securing funding from a range of trusts and foundations. You will be responsible for developing partnerships and writing compelling funding applications and proposals that meet Brook's strategic aims and support delivery of business priorities. On a wider income generation level, you will also support our tender development for commissioned work, corporate engagement and community fundraising.

We are seeking someone with significant experience and a successful track record in securing funding through grants and foundations or other funding bodies. The successful candidate will have substantial experience of leading and writing compelling proposals and experience of working at senior management level. Ideally, you will have knowledge of youth/sexual health policy and its impact on service development, delivery and funding. If you share our values which are centred around collaboration, leading the way courageously and being a trustworthy service for young people, then we would love to hear from you.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a trailblazing charity with a proud history and an exciting future.

This is a full-time role although we are happy to consider applications on a part-time basis. Ideally, candidates will be based in London but we also have a Liverpool office and would consider applications from North West-based candidates.

"Brook has been putting young people's health and wellbeing first for 50 years, often swimming against the tide, but always putting young people front and centre."

Eastside Primetimers is supporting Brook in recruiting for this role. Please download the candidate information pack for further information. Application is by CV and a covering letter which should indicate why you are interested in applying for the role and how you meet the role requirements.

The closing date for applications is the July 29th, 2019 with initial interviews with Eastside Primetimers taking place that week/the week after. We are able to offer some flexibility given it is the holiday period. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to interview with Brook.
