Fundraising secondment opportunity: Fundraising Events Co-ordinator

Everyone understands how one brilliant person can make things great things happen in a charity – especially when it comes to fundraising and putting on great supporter events.

As Children England approaches our 75th anniversary at the end of the year, the Trustees have set us a bold new ambition – to generate income from our 75th celebration events and establish a new case/appeal for donor support of our ongoing work.

We’re a small team of mainly policy and campaigns people here – and we desperately want to learn and benefit from the skills and experience that we know our members have in abundance in making fundraising events a success. We’re therefore looking for a secondee who could take a lead in setting us off on this path, creating and coordinating a series of events, and sharing skills with our team to continue and sustain our efforts beyond their secondment period.

We think this could be a great career development project for an enthusiastic fundraising professional who’s keen to embrace a new challenge! We envisage the secondment being for the equivalent of 2 days a week over 9 months, but we would be very open to flexibility in how that spreads in practice, and can be flexible about where they work from too. We can contribute £10,500 to the seconding organisation and hope very much that you’ll consider whether there is anyone within your own teams, or wider professional networks who you think would be great for this opportunity.

We are keen to find potential candidates by early/mid June and in the event that we have multiple offers we will create an appointment decisions process led by a selection of our Trustees.

We are a founding member of the Open To All campaign, meaning that when we recruit, we won't ask candidates to have a degree unless it's technically essential for the role.
