Do you want to use your fundraising skills to support a charity which supports and champions the young people of Wirral?
Wirral Youth Zone, named “The Hive” by local young people, has been serving the young people of Wirral since opening in April 2017. The Hive is an inspirational charity, employing exceptional youth workers and an army of volunteers. It changes the lives of thousands of young people each year, delivering social impact on an incredible scale.
The facilities are state-of-the-art and second to none, delivering over 20 sporting, artistic, cultural, and recreational activities each session when schools are closed (evenings and weekends), plus throughout the school holidays. The building itself and facilities on offer are the initial hook for young people, but the real magic happens inside with a fully qualified, highly skilled youth work team who support and empower young people to overcome challenges and reach their potential.
About the Role
Working within a small fundraising team, the Community and Corporate Fundraiser will make a significant contribution to securing a legacy for thousands of local young people through the generation of new income. This income generation is broken into two programmes: the Community Fundraising programme and the SME Corporate Partnerships programme, both of which you’ll be involved in.
The Community programme will encourage the local community to fundraise for the Hive through approaching schools, groups, and associations, and recruiting participants for events. The SME Corporate Partnerships programme will encourage businesses to donate up to £1000 through initiatives such as Charity of the Year applications, staff fundraising initiatives, and recruiting support from smaller local businesses. You will also support and inspire existing corporate partners as part of your role.
This role is perfect opportunity for a fundraiser with a proven track record of securing funds via community and corporate fundraising, to set up a new Community programme at the Hive. We are also very much open to candidates from a sales, marketing, and account management background. To be successful in this role, you will have experience meeting financial targets, and managing a pipeline of potential supporters/donors/clients.
You’ll be a strong networker and relationship builder, with the ability to communicate effectively, understanding what drives donors. You’ll be results-driven, ambitious, with creative thinking and a strong sense of teamwork. Most importantly, you will believe in the power of excellent youth work.
If this role piques your interest, please get in touch with a copy of your CV to Ellen Drummond at Charity People who will be happy to provide lots more information including how to apply.
Deadline: 9am Friday 16th February
Interviews: Monday 26th February in person (and informal second stage including a tour of the Youth Zone would follow on Wednesday 28th February)
