Description:

Do you have proven fundraising, transferable or relevant experience, a passion for proactive Fundraising and a real desire to be part of Shelter’s campaign against homelessness and for social justice? Then join us as Community Fundraising Area Manager and you could soon be playing an important role at the heart of our Community & Events team. 

About Shelter Scotland

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet over a million people in Scotland struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

At Shelter Scotland we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter Scotland and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation. 

About the team

Community & Events is made up of Community Fundraising, Challenge & Bespoke Events and Culture, Entertainment & Sports sub-teams. Together, we look after a wide variety of fundraising activities that encourage supporters to raise money and provide them with excellent support to do so. We’ve made a significant investment in Community Fundraising to grow the team from five in 2019 to 24 currently, despite the pandemic. That’s because increasing engagement in local communities is a central part of both our fundraising and organisational strategy. We now have 12 Regional Fundraisers across England and Scotland; a central Community Fundraising National Relationships team and a robust and supportive management team which, should you join us, you’ll be part of.

About the role 

An exciting opportunity with lots of existing and new avenues to explore, you’ll have every chance to really make your mark. That’s because, we have a strategy in place, but there’s still lots to do - and you‘ll be key in developing what we do and how we do it, as well as leading direct reports and the wider team to deliver on your plans. One of your main challenges will be to develop an overarching Community Fundraising team strategy to ensure a clear plan of projected growth and agreed objectives over the next five years. We’ll also look to you to significantly increase Community Fundraising income by enabling the team to proactively engage key audiences and improve the supporter stewardship experience. Creating and delivering an annual budget, taking the lead role for key income streams or activities, helping to create new fundraising products and engaging and influencing key stakeholders – these are just some aspects of this interesting, varied and vital role.

We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit. 

About you

To succeed, you’ll need to be creative, innovative and able to learn from failure as much as from success. The opportunity to lead, support, coach and empower a team to get out there and achieve success really appeals to you too. You’re also a great believer in putting the supporter experience at the heart of everything you do and eager to engage new and diverse audiences and build authentic relationships – both externally and internally. Adept at influencing and negotiating and great at carrying out detailed analysis or making data-driven decisions, you’re also resilient and, crucially, keen to create a strong, supportive and aspirational culture where the team are motivated by exceeding targets.
