Job Information

BACKGROUND

There are currently over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and this is expected to increase to 1.1 million by 2025, and 2 million by 2050.

In response to this Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through the Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them, giving the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions people need. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline – it helps everyone in the family to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

The charity has seen significant income growth over the past four years, (income has more than doubled to £8m), and there are ambitious plans to maintain this growth so the number of Admiral Nurses can be significantly increased.   Community Fundraising will play a key part in this expansion, as a key income stream for the charity. This is a great opportunity for someone to have a real impact and make their mark across their region, raising vital funds and awareness.

THE ROLE

Working closely with the Regional Fundraising Manager, you will be responsible for the delivery of the Community and Challenge Events strategy and operational plan and meeting those targets and KPI’s.

You will manage existing and develop new areas of community fundraising including: schools, universities, golf clubs, rotaries, faith groups and other community groups and support the flagship community fundraising event, Time for a Cuppa, within the region.

A key part of the role is to recruit, manage and motivate volunteers to undertake fundraising and awareness

and manage and develop relationships with supporters, delivering excellent levels of supporter care, motivating them and recognising their achievement to encourage their long term support.

There will be a need to attend events on behalf of the charity, receiving donations and delivering presentations on the charity’s work and promote Community and Challenge Events opportunities in region.

IS IT YOU WE’RE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for a special person for this exciting role.  Working from home you will be covering a large region and so you will need to be highly organised, confident and self-disciplined.  There will be a need to work variable hours with occasional evening and weekend events and you must be happy to travel across the region.  Naturally you will be IT literate with experience of working with databases.    In addition you will be able to demonstrate the ability to build positive relationships, confidence in networking and have excellent communication skills.

We are looking for an experienced Fundraiser who is a real team player and has a commitment to achieving financial targets.
