Fundraising Manager - North Wales
- Contract Type
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is the nation's heart charity with a mission to lead the fight for every heartbeat through pioneering cardiovascular research. We fund thousands of scientists carrying out more than half the UK's cardiovascular research and our work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are helping to change the face of the UK's fight against heart disease.
About the role
We are recruiting for a Fundraising Manager to work and cover the north of Wales. Our Community Fundraising team has ambitious targets to help us in our fight for every heartbeat and we are investing in our team to help us achieve these goals.
You'll be maximising income and awareness for the BHF within your patch through proactively securing and managing community fundraising partnerships and recruiting and managing 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.
The successful candidate will have a proven track record in fundraising at a community level or strong evidence of transferable experience, for example an outstanding track record in sales or account management. You'll have excellent communication, networking and relationship building skills.
This is a brilliant opportunity to join our ambitious team looking to continue our recent track record of fantastic growth. We're looking for people who are as ambitious as we are as well as being experts in their fields 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 the north of Wales. 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.
