Challenge & Community Fundraising Assistant
As part of a transformational growth strategy the Home has invested heavily in a new fundraising team and activities, increasing income more than tenfold since 2010 and substantially reducing an over reliance on legacy income.
Our fundraising programme has grown rapidly across all areas; most notably by developing a significant individual donor base, establishing a major gifts programme and launching new corporate partnerships, events and community fundraising activity. Yet the opportunity to increase our impact for animals through growing a significant and sustainable income base remains considerable and our fundraising team are set to achieve ambitious year-on-year growth in order transform the lives of the animals in our care.
Our talented and award-winning fundraising team is vibrant, ambitious and well respected. It’s therefore an exciting time to work at one of the country’s most loved and best known animal charities – and work as part of one of the fastest growing fundraising teams. Mass participation events and community fundraising are a vital part of a new fundraising strategy, and as part of this fast paced, dynamic team, you will play an important part in rising to the exciting challenge of maximising the many untapped opportunities for community fundraising and mass participation, challenge and public events fundraising at the Home.
