Whether it’s access to work, education, medical care or a social outing, Dial-a-Journey has been providing a transport lifeline to residents across Forth Valley for over 30 years.
Established in 1986, the organisation initially consisted of 2 employees and 2 vehicles. Now with over 40 employees and a fleet of vehicles, as well as additional mobility services, the organisation is crucial to thousands of Forth Valley residents.
Dial-a-Journey’s invaluable service provides affordable accessible transport, ensuring those with limited mobility do not become house-bound. For others, the organisation offers vital employment and training opportunities.
The organisation is supported and receives financial assistance from the Order of Malta and three local authorities – Clackmannanshire Council, Falkirk Council and Stirling Council. In order to develop the organisation and safeguard its services for the next 30 years and beyond, Dial-a-Journey is looking for its first Fundraising Officer.
You will be a confident fundraiser with the knowledge and experience to put fundraising in the fast lane for this hard-working charity. Initially, you will prepare a fundraising delivery plan based on the fundraising strategy and advise the Senior Management Team and Board of Trustees on how the plan should be taken forwards. There are great opportunities to fundraise in the local community, through grants and trusts, major donor cultivation, corporate support and legacy/in-memorandum giving. This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious self-starter to really make an impact for a well-established, stable organisation which delivers life-changing services.
If you have the drive to propel Dial-a-Journey forwards into a new era, a rewarding journey awaits!
