For over 50 years our research has saved lives. We've broken new ground, revolutionised treatments and transformed care. But heart and circulatory disease still kills one in four people in the UK. That's why we need you.

About the role

Our Community Fundraising team has ambitious targets to help us in our fight for every heartbeat. We are recruiting for a home based Fundraising Manager to develop and grow our supporter network and income in Suffolk, this is a newly created role as we are expanding and investing in our team to help us achieve these goals.

Putting the supporter first, you'll maximise income and awareness for the BHF within your patch through proactively securing and managing community fundraising partnerships and recruiting/supporting networks of fundraising groups, supporters and volunteers. Other responsibilities include proactively building and developing fundraising groups and recruiting individual volunteers and supporters; securing fundraising partnerships; and delivering national campaigns, local projects and maximising community engagement.

About you


The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in fundraising at a community level; having been involved in projects such as the winning and management of charity of the year or longer term corporate/clubs/association partnerships, volunteer or people management experiences and supporter/customer engagement.

With strong evidence of transferable skills and experience, e.g. a track record in sales or account management, customer service or business development would be considered valuable in this role. You'll have excellent communication, networking and relationship building skills and be passionate, tenacious and motivated to make a difference in the fight against heart disease.

This is a brilliant opportunity to join our ambitious forward looking team and contribute to our recent track record of fantastic growth. This role provides a brilliant opportunity to transition from a local charity to gain experience with one with nationally recognised brand presence. Or for an ambitious sales person who is an expert in their field, to use their transferable skills to help our vision become a reality. We're brave, informed, driven and compassionate in our fight against heart disease and, if that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.

You will also need a full UK driving licence plus previous experience of working remotely and be able to demonstrate an ability to manage and motivate yourself.

Please note this is a home-based position and you will need to live in Suffolk. Candidates who live outside of the local authority should highlight an intention to relocate to the area in their covering letter for their application to be considered.
