Young Epilepsy is the children and young people’s epilepsy charity. Our purpose is to create a society in which children and young people with epilepsy are enabled to thrive and fulfil their potential, in which their voices are respected, and their ambitions realised.
We work with children and young people across the country, as well as many of those people and organisations who shape their lives - parents, health and care professionals, researchers, teachers, policymakers and more.
Informed by young people and drawing on our strong legacy of expertise in education, health and research, we have developed and published our new 2020-2025 strategy. This focuses our work around 4 offers; Learning, Health, Research and Information, with firm foundations in our three value statements:
- Young people are at the centre of everything we do
- We work together to make a greater difference
- We are courageous and ambitious for change
These values will ensure that we always put the voices, the rights and the best interests of children and young people first and commit us to working in partnerships that can increase our impact. They also ensure that we are inspired by the courage and ambition of the young people with whom we work, knowing that together, we can drive the change in society and services we all want to see.
The Fundraising and Communications teams at Young Epilepsy are going through an exciting phase of change and growth. With the challenges in the current funding climate, we need an agile and skilled team who can help us deliver our goals that will enable young people with epilepsy to thrive.
This means significantly increasing our income and engaging our supporters in a more meaningful way, putting them at the heart of our fundraising and delivering excellent customer service.
We need data driven insights to help us target our engagement in the right way and we need to improve and adapt our fundraising proposition to reflect the changing needs of both beneficiaries and donors and stand out in a crowded market.
With the development of a new website, investment in our brand and communications and with growing ambition across our service delivery, this role will be pivotal in navigating our way to success, in a time of complexity and uncertainty.
What we need from you
We are looking for candidates who can lead with vision, set clarity and purpose to a team dealing with ambiguity and change. This means thinking both creatively and analytically, staying focused on the goal, and having a passion for the work we do.
