Events Fundraising Manager
Victoria, London
£33,000 - £36,000 per annum + Benefits

The Whizz-Kidz events programme plays a critical role in enabling us to achieve our goals. Driving around £1.5m of income each year through a varied and engaging events mix, including our Flagship London Marathon Event, the team has developed a reputation for excellence based on outstanding customer care and service. An opportunity has arisen to lead this team of five and we are looking for a special individual who can step up to this challenge.

Reporting to the Director of Fundraising, and in line with the vision and aims of the charity, you will:
• develop and implement an events fundraising strategy that enables delivery against agreed financial and non-financial targets
• grow a portfolio that includes third party and bespoke events
• have experience of incorporating and implementing stewardship into your successful strategies
• be highly motivated and organised
• be a strategic thinker who is willing and able to lead a team to achieve stretch targets.

We’re a national charity with a strong, local case for support. Through our Ambassador network and Kidz Board, we involve our beneficiaries in all aspects of our work from consultation on strategy to involvement and support at events. Our young people are at the heart of everything we do.

This is a key role in a successful Fundraising Management Team and an excellent opportunity for a collaborative, creative and driven fundraiser looking to develop their skills and experience. If you want to develop your career in a charity that will reward your hard work with a commitment to broadening your fundraising skills, then this is the charity for you.
