We are seeking a professional, energetic and creative Fundraiser to join our team. We work to give vulnerable young people and adults a safe place to call home, and also have a variety of outreach services within the local community. The Fundraiser will be an integral part of the Income Generation, and wider staff teams.

By having strong relationship and networking skills, you will plan, implement and achieve successful income generation for the charity. By having a sound understanding of the organisations needs, an approachable nature and the ability to develop positive working relationships internally and externally, you will realise fundraising targets.

Demonstrating strong relationship and networking skills, presentation skills, project management, good marketing skills, as well as great organisational skills, you will contribute to the growth of the fundraising strategy. Particular focus will be in the areas of Corporate and Business, Churches, Payroll Giving and Legacies. The successful person will also work closely with the rest of the income generation team to contribute to the overall fundraising plan which also includes Individual Giving, Community, Events and Bid Writing.

A particular focus for this post is; to build and develop connections corporately and also within the church community, to demonstrate and represent the Christian faith, ethos and values internally and externally, to attend, support and lead on Christian based activities for and on behalf of the organisation i.e. prayer meetings, fellowship or church attendance. There is therefore an occupational requirement that the post holder is a practicing Christian committed to the objectives and values of YMCA Burton and is able to work in an interdenominational environment.

If you have the background and experience required for this Fundraising role and have a genuine interest in what we do as a charity, we want to hear from you.
