Turn2us, a national charity helping people when times get tough.
Unexpected illness, job loss or relationship breakdown can turn any of our lives upside down, leading to loss of income, loss of housing, and financial crisis for any of us and our families. Around 14.4 million people live in poverty in the UK including a shameful 4.5 million children.
So people can build financial sustainability and thrive, Turn2us gives people the information and support they need in the face of life-changing events, and collaborates to tackle the causes and symptoms of poverty. We are here to end the crippling impact of financial shocks. As well as giving direct financial help through our own charitable grants and highlighting ways to reduce essential costs, we support people to increase their income through welfare benefits, charitable grants and other support. No one in the UK should live in poverty.
The Director of Income & External Affairs is an extraordinary opportunity to join an inspirational and focused senior team that’s building and delivering a refreshed operating model for this respected and effective charity.
You will be the driver of our fundraising team to increase our voluntary income so we can achieve more impact for people facing financial hardship. You’ll lead the external affairs team to reach people before and as they face financial shocks and build the profile of our work to secure more income and have more influence. You’ll work hand in hand with your senior colleagues on the leadership team to take the organisation in to the future and to tackle financial exclusion.
We are more interested in your potential than we are in a perfect career or education. We want to recruit so we can build a strong, high-performing leadership team full of complementary experiences and strengths, not a group of people with the same perspectives.
