Head of Fundraising
£55,000 pro rata (£44,000 per annum)
Part-time, 28 hours per week
12-month contract with possible extension into substantive
In the UK there are more than 1.3 million children and young people living with a disability and nearly four million children living in poverty.
We exist to improve the lives of these children and since 1949 Variety in the UK has raised more than £270m in pursuit of this objective.
Variety provides practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference, which includes grants for specialist equipment as well as accessible transport used by schools and other non-profit organisations across the UK. Our Great Days Out are legendary.
As with many organisations we are re-calibrating to adjust to the changes that have been brought by the Coronavirus pandemic, which has only increased the demand for what we do.
Our 75th anniversary in 2024 is fast approaching, which gives us a huge opportunity to put 2020 firmly behind us, and to re-double our efforts in generating funds, raising our profile, and most importantly increasing the impact and reach to those children and young people who most need our support.
The Head of Fundraising role is part of a new leadership team being established to position the charity to be able to maximise on future opportunities afforded by our 75th anniversary, evolve our services and to secure a bright future for the decades to come.
The initial contract is for 12 months but there is every hope and expectation that this will be extended, and that the role converted to become permanent. You will have our full support in making this a reality.
