Fundraising Manager opportunity — freelance/part time/consultancy

FUNDRAISING MANAGER (freelance/part time/consultancy)

The Jericho Foundation supports people to become fulfilled, skilled and employed, working especially with people who experience significant personal or occupational barriers to employment, training or social inclusion.

Along with four other voluntary sector organisations, Jericho has identified a building from which the partners wish to deliver a holistic package of support services to marginalised communities in inner city Birmingham.

Jericho now wishes to identify a fundraiser who will secure the resources for the building (approx. £250K) and develop a long term fundraising strategy for its sustainability.

Role: This new role will provide a great opportunity for a senior fundraiser to work with Jericho and the collaborations development manager as they embark on a period of significant growth and development.

Applicants: You will be responsible for raising the funds for the building and developing a long term fundraising strategy for its sustainability. As well as sourcing revenue funding for the joint and individual needs of consortium members.

You should have a proven track record of raising funds for capital projects from a diverse number of sources including the Big Lottery, GMT, central and local government, public and corporate sectors.

The successful applicant/s will be innovative, inspirational and energetic in approach and will empathise fully with the charity’s aims and ambitions. Ideally, you will be a member of the Institute of Fundraising Managers or equivalent.

We will consider offers on a paid fee basis but offers where some or all of the fees are paid on a commission basis may be considered favourably.
