Community and Events Fundraiser

Based: Luton
Salary: circa. £35,000 (dependent on experience)
Hours: 37.5 hours per week

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic fundraiser (or someone who can demonstrate the relevant transferable skills) to join our small, dynamic, and friendly team raising funds. Support and training will be given to help you gain experience and further develop your existing key skills.

As NOAH’s Community and Events Fundraiser you will be responsible for generating over £90k per annum by developing our new community fundraising strategy. You will progress and maximise income from community led fundraising, with a focus on community, religious and educational groups. This will include organising mass and medium sized events to generate income which will help to deliver our services to clients facing rough sleeping, homelessness, or severe poverty.

You will support third parties with their fundraising activities and be confident public speaking and delivering presentations to community groups and large organisations.

This role focuses largely on increasing contributions from individuals, community groups, businesses, and other organisations that the charity could benefit from. Identifying new contacts and support through effective community engagement is essential, as well as developing existing relationships to secure continued support.

This role will lead on providing first class stewardship and event support to all supporters and groups. You will play an active part in creating our own voluntary fundraising groups, ensuring those you interact with have an exceptional experience and continue to support our cause.

The successful applicant will have exceptional communication skills, strong relationship building skills and a thirst for delivering excellent customer service that inspires and motivates. As a highly motivated individual you will have great attention to detail and the ability to manage this varied and sometimes demanding workload. You will also enjoy taking ownership over your work, be able to work independently and as part of a wider team. You’ll be ambitious to drive your own progression as well as fundraising streams within NOAH.

You will need to hold a full, valid driving license.
