Reporting to the Regional Fundraising Manager, you will take responsibility for an agreed income target, achieved by working proactively across the region with community groups (i.e. educational establishments, Rotary Clubs, Cubs/Brownies) volunteer fundraisers and local companies.

- Confident in the application of charity law as it applies to regional fundraising – you use your knowledge of the principles that underpin customer care to not only maintain current income levels, but to build upon them year-on-year
- Practical and outgoing – you will thrive working independently, taking ownership of delivering something new, and delegate effectively following up on timeliness and quality
- Demonstrable success in meeting income and expenditure targets - you understand the importance of researching before making an approach and know when to make the fundraising ‘ask’.
