Associate Director of Fundraising
Blesma - The Limbless Veterans is the national charity and membership association for limbless serving and ex-service men and women and their dependants. It exists to help its people to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
We help all wounded servicemen and women who have lost limbs, the use of limbs or eyes, to rebuild their lives by providing rehabilitation activities and well-being support.
Blesma campaigns for our veteran’s rights and looks after individuals and their families by offering a comprehensive grants and welfare system. Rehabilitation, support, counselling and care are the four principle foundations of our organisation. Together, we can help our men, women and their families face the challenges ahead with renewed confidence and self-belief.
The Associate Director of Fundraising is an important role within Blesma that sits on the Executive Team and leads a high-performing team that delivers efficient, effective and sustainable fundraising programme that has gone from strength to strength over recent years.
With a turnover of £6.6m in 2016, we successfully raised in excess of £3.5m the following year in order to continue to deliver our activities and adapt to changing needs. As a charity, we are committed to ensuring that every penny we receive is spent wisely and this forms the foundation of our commitment to the donors who support our work.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced fundraiser who thrives on ‘doing’ the fundraising and who takes a relationship approach to developing long-term partnerships that lead to multiple gifts.
Blesma is an organisation that is fundamentally concerned with people and individual relationships, which informs how we do our fundraising.
We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society. Blesma encourages a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. With an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements where appropriate.
