If you are a talented and qualified fundraising professional with experience of grant proposals and working with major donors, this is an outstanding opportunity to advance your career with our relevant and exceptional charity.

2020 has been an incredibly challenging time for our ambulance crews and now, more than ever, we need to make sure they are supported and enabled to continue their vital work.

Your role will see you working with senior figures in our organisation, driving income growth and delivering funds that will mean we can support more people with a wider scope and remit.

What's more, alongside doing some real good on a daily basis, you will be able to undertake other commitments outside of work, meaning this is the perfect role for those with a busy lifestyle.

Specifically, aiding our team with a variety of fundraising tasks, you will build on our fundraising programme. You will be involved in a variety of areas including researching potential new fundraising streams, developing specific funding proposals and bids and building our ability to raise unrestricted funds from major donors.

Your role will also involve:

- Supporting the development of new applications and partnerships
- Working with colleagues from other departments on supporter engagement
- Building positive relationships with corporate supporters
- Working with, updating and maintaining our fundraising database
- Reporting on monthly fundraising activity

* Significant experience gained in a charity fundraising role that includes achieving fundraising targets

* Experience gained in the charity sector

* The ability to help produce reports that support analysis and inform decision making

* An appropriate degree, or equivalent experience, in the Third Sector
