Fundraising Assistant

Contract: Part-time, 21 hours
Salary: £18,300 to £22,000 dependent on experience
Location: Ross-on-Wye
Closing: Sunday 17 November 2019
Interviews: Monday 25 November 2019

We have ambitious plans to substantially grow our income over the coming years from existing and new partnerships and we are looking for a motivated Fundraising Assistant to play an active role in our fundraising initiatives and provide support for our high-achieving team.

Providing an excellent standard of administrative support is core to the role, but it doesn’t stop there - you will be able to take responsibility for specific donor communications and initiatives both on community, events and corporate fundraising activities and our trust and grants programme. Efficient and effective support makes it possible for our fundraising team to maximise the opportunities and enable our vital work to make changes for our marine environments.

No two days will be the same – you’ll be supporting our supporters and fundraisers in the community, actively researching new corporate contacts, handling enquiries over the phone and in emails from our existing and potentially new community and corporate donors – ample opportunities to demonstrate your excellent customer service skills and attention to detail.

You will be a self-starter, used to supporting a motivated team in a busy environment, and confident in your ability to take a proactive approach when managing a varied and busy workload.
