Is encouraging and motivating people your superpower?
Could your passion for fundraising inspire supporters to raise the vital funds needed to help save young people’s lives?
Working for the UK’s leading charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide, the biggest killer of people aged 35, you agree with PAPYRUS that suicide can be preventable with the right support and education.
As Community Fundraising Officer, you’ll help to fund the incredible HopelineUK ensuring it’s staffed with highly-trained suicide prevention advisers. You’ll raise money for education and training to create suicide-safer communities, and press for change to current legislation.
Salary: £25,419 – £28,336 per annum
Hours: 36 hours per week, flexible working or 4 days considered
Location: Hybrid, office in Warrington
About the role:
To allow PAPYRUS to continue to provide and grow this vital support, you’ll develop and maintain long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with volunteer fundraisers. Through individual giving and in-aid of events, your brilliant stewardship will support, motivate and inspire a team of passionate supporters with creative and innovative fundraising ideas.
About the person:
Ideally, you’ve already got fundraising experience in community or volunteer management.
However, we’d also welcome applications from people with transferable skills e.g. events, business development or account management wanting to take their first step into the charity sector.
Many of PAPYRUS’ supporters are people whose lives have been touched in some way by suicide, so we’re looking for someone who is empathetic and has exceptional communication skills.
You’ll also need to be highly organised and able to juggle multiple priorities, have access to a car and a full UK driving license.
If you want to be part of the PAPYRUS team, please send a copy of your profile or CV to Amelia Lee at Charity People for more information on how to apply.
Deadline: 9am on Monday 15th August
Interviews: 22nd August, but we can be flexible if you are on holiday
