Job Title: Fundraising Leader
Working For: Make Votes Matter
Location: Internet (or Bristol HQ if local)
An unmatched opportunity for an ambitious and capable professional to lead fundraising during the most crucial period of the nation’s most critical political campaign: reforming the First Past the Post voting system that is the true author of the UK’s woes. The successful applicant will inherit our impressive track record in grants and crowdfunding, a hugely enthusiastic supporter base, and an awesome sense of momentum around the emerging opportunity for democratic change.
They will need to provide the skills, determination and sound judgment required to strengthen our fundraising channels, deliver on and review our fundraising strategy, and consolidate the medium-term sustainability of the campaign. Success in this role will mean development and demonstration of the full range of professional fundraising capabilities at a senior level - and will be a crucial contribution to the biggest advance in British democracy since women won the vote.
The role will require confidence in delivering fundraising results, a high level of organisation and motivation, the flexibility to work on multiple channels, and the ability to quickly learn new skills where required. It will be wide ranging and varied, including crowdfunding, regular giving channels, mid- and high-net-worth donors, legacies and collaborating on grant applications. To support this, the successful applicant will hold key stakeholder relationships with potential funders and will design and deliver a package of incentives for donors. In delivering their objectives, the job holder will have active support from the expert and enthusiastic team members who have enabled our fundraising successes to date, including both staff and experienced fundraising volunteers.
This role would suit a talented junior fundraiser who is keen to step up to a leadership position, or an experienced industry professional who is willing to offer their services in order to bring about the vital change we seek.
