If you have experience of fundraising leadership this is an opportunity where your skills could make a difference in helping to end homelessness and rebuild lives.
About the role
We are looking for a Director of Fundraising, available to start in mid-April 2021 while our existing Director is on maternity leave until the end of October 2021.
You will provide senior level advice, start our thinking about our next fundraising strategy and provide vision and direction to a team that is growing in size and also in ambition. You will be part of the leadership of the Development Directorate and will also work closely with senior colleagues across the whole of St Mungo’s.
What we’re looking for
This role will suit a strategic individual with experience of managing successful fundraising functions and working with colleagues across a variety of teams. You will bring to the role a well-developed understanding of different types of fundraising as well as experience of leading teams. Equally important will be your skills in using data to inform approaches and your strong communication skills.
If you have experience of leadership in fundraising, building motivated, engaged and high performing teams, developing strategy and advising at a senior level we would be delighted to hear from you.
We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) applicants, as they are under-represented within St Mungo’s at this level.

- A Diverse and Inclusive Work Place
At St Mungo’s, equality, diversity and inclusion are central to the organisation's values and how we work.

Our Networks include: BAME, Carers and Parents, Lived Experience, LGBTQIA+, Disability Awareness, South West, Irish and Women’s Action.
- Flexible Working and Pension
We are committed to maintaining your work/life balance. We offer 25 days annual leave, and operate a very popular Flexi Time scheme, which allows you to supplement your annual leave entitlement. After 5 years, staff annual leave entitlement increases to 28 days.
St Mungo’s contribute 4% of your gross annual salary, and you are able to enrol in the Defined Contribution scheme following a successful probationary period in which the employer contribution is 6%.
What we do
At St Mungo’s our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions. As a homelessness charity and housing association, our clients are at the heart of what we do, and in 2019 we supported nearly 30,000 people who were either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Our staff are crucial to making this happen.
