National Fundraising Officer
MSSC (Marine Society and Sea Cadets) is a friendly and focused place to work. As the parent charity for two dynamic, nautical and seafaring organisations we aim to be the leading maritime charity for youth development and lifelong learning. We are the governing body of the Sea Cadets, which gives 14,000 young people a great head start in life through nautical adventure based on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy, and Marine Society which supports the personal and professional development of seafarers where ever they are in the world.
We are seeking a motivated self-starter to join our successful Trust Fundraising Team as a National Fundraising Officer. The role offers a fantastic opportunity for you to provide vital support to 14,000 young people across the UK, by generating income for Sea Cadets premises. Joining a team of three, you’ll play a crucial and integral part in helping the charity increase its fundraising efforts and be the main point of contact for our volunteers. You will have demonstrable trusts/statutory fundraising skills and strong communication skills, particularly within the voluntary sector. Your positive and approachable manner will aid you in delivering compelling presentations to large groups of volunteers, empowering and informing them to fundraise more effectively.
At 160 years old, Sea Cadets is at an exciting and pivotal time in its history and this role offers you the chance to be in the thick of it, joining a tight knit team, directly helping our beneficiaries.
