Fundraising Officer

Application deadline: 21/10/2019

This is a fantastic opportunity to join the fundraising team at one of the UK’s leading interfaith organisations.  As a Fundraising Officer, you’ll help make a real difference by raising vital funds for our work to build understanding between people of different faiths, beliefs and cultures.

You will work closely with our fundraising team across a variety of projects and initiatives to help us secure income and manage our fundraising portfolio.

In this role you will be working on a broad range of fundraising projects like delivering high-profile fundraising events, liaising with Trusts, Foundations and Major Donors as well as working with colleagues to organise community fundraising initiatives. You will be part of a dynamic fundraising team which has enabled the organisation to grow year on year for the last three years.

This is a new role, so as well as supporting our existing fundraising activities, we’re excited for you to bring your own enthusiasm and ideas to the team, and in doing so contribute to the future direction of our work for years to come. The person we’re looking for will be proactive and able to take forward new fundraising campaigns, as well as use their strong administrative skills to keep track of existing projects.

This is an exciting time to be joining a growing organisation working to build positive and lasting relations between people in a climate where this work has arguably never been more important.

This role will involve:

  • Leading on key areas of delivery for a range of special and high-profile fundraising events
  • Managing existing grants and designing stewardship plans to engage stakeholders
  • Being responsible for overseeing our fundraising records and for tracking donations from individuals and organisations
  • Contributing to new fundraising initiatives such as community fundraising, corporate fundraising, challenges, and developing your own ideas
  • Working closely with the rest of the team to pursue new fundraising opportunities, partnerships, and bringing funders closer to our work

To do this, you will need to:

  • Have experience raising money for charity, through volunteering or paid work
  • Be able to use your excellent communication skills to make the case for our work to a range of potential supporters
  • Feel comfortable talking to new people on a regular basis and building relationships
  • Enjoy working on very different projects simultaneously
  • Be proactive in developing new ideas and driving them forward

You’ll be joining an organisation that embodies the inclusive and welcoming values we want to see in wider society. We pride ourselves on our diverse and collaborative working environment, where your passion and dedication will be rewarded through a flexible rewards package and ongoing support. At our most recent staff survey, 100% of staff said believe in the aims of the Faith & Belief Forum and 100% enjoy the work they do.
