When someone becomes ill, the effect on them, their friends and family can be life changing. It can happen to any of us. The consequences of mental ill health are far reaching – affecting employment, relationships, finances and even life expectancy. This charity exists to fund the people and projects striving to improve care, support recovery and prevent mental illness.
NHS Trust Engagement & Fundraising Manager
Location: Denmark Hill, London (and home working)
Salary: £36,000 - £43,000 per annum
Contract: Permanent, up to fulltime, open to flexible working
This role will develop an Engagement Strategy for South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) to deliver growth in voluntary net income and build awareness of the charity and its impact within the Trust. As the NHS Trust Engagement & Fundraising Manager, you will also be the central contact for fundraising, building meaningful and lasting relationships with Trust staff, service users, carers and families; supporting them to achieve their fundraising ambitions.
The charity already has a good relationship with the Trust but now they want to work more strategically, so staff know who they are and how they’ve supported them in the past, how they can help them and the Trust to make a greater impact on people with mental illnesses, and how they can support the charity to do that.
You will be joining a small but mighty Fundraising and Communications team, right at the start of their journey, so this role will be both rewarding and challenging. You’ll need to be able to flex between designing well-informed plans that look to the future, to doing the groundwork to get the basics right. But you’ll be working with the new supportive Director of Fundraising & Communications and the small but mighty Fundraising & Comms team, as well as the wider organisation to celebrate your achievements and help you navigate the challenges.
The organisation values potential as much as transferable skills and experience and are looking for a wide pool of candidates for this role. They particularly welcome your application if you are from a Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic background, have a disability, are LGBTQ+, or have any other protected characteristic.
For this role they are running a blind recruitment process; will pay for UK travel expenses for interviews if needed; none of the criteria for this role is essential so encourage you to talk about your potential as much as your transferable experience and skills in your application; they will give you the interview questions before the interview so you can prepare if you’d like; you’ll be scored fairly; and are encouraged to find out as much about the organisation as they want to find out about you. They are committed to offering interviews to candidates who meet the role requirements and have lived experience of mental illness.
The successful candidate will be able to navigate complex organisations, build strong relationships and engage people individually and en masse through a range of channels. You’ll need to be able to balance looking and planning ahead with rolling your sleeves up and getting stuck in. It would be helpful if you’ve worked in a fundraising environment before, if you have managed long-term donor or client relationships, or have experience of working in an NHS or mental health charity. Above all, they are looking for potential, so if you think this role is for you, please get in touch with Harris Hill for more info and to apply.
Closing date for applications: Friday 8th July 2022
1st Interview date(s): W/C 18th July 2022
2nd Interview date(s): Friday 29th July 2022
