Paid vacancies

Role: Senior Fundraiser

Hours: Full time (35 hours per week)

Deadline for applications: 5pm Thursday 4 May 2017

We’re looking for a talented individual to lead our small fundraising as we grow the charity. You’ll report to our Chief Executive who has led the charity’s growth over the last four years while supporting staff in achieving their own goals as well as delivering effective services to people with M.E. You will lead our income generation work alongside colleagues who are responsible for major donor fundraising and corporate partnerships. Alongside supporting junior fundraising colleagues, which accounts for about 10% of your time, you will bring your creativity to help the organisation raise more money from all its activity. For the remaining time, you will be responsible for writing larger trust applications, supporting community fundraising, increasing membership and identifying ways to better steward and excite our donors through events and launching a mid-level donors’ club. We’re a friendly, ambitious team taking action to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by people with M.E. As the leading UK charity for people with M.E., we deliver services to improve the lives of children and adults living with the illness, raise awareness and understanding and fund biomedical research. You can play a pivotal part in helping us to grow the charity to reach more people and deliver critical services and support. If you are a dynamic, charismatic person up for a challenge and want to work with us to stop M.E. stealing lives, we’d love to hear from you.

Volunteering can be hugely rewarding and as the hours are often more flexible, it could help you get back into work. As former volunteer Jane told us before she found paid employment: "Thank you so much for being so supportive and giving me the chance to get my confidence back again."

We will post volunteer vacancies here as soon as they become available.
