Branch Fundraiser

Closing date: 2nd May 2021

Interview date: 7th May 2021

Salary: £25,000 p.a.

Hours: 37.5 hours per week

Start date: Immediate Start

Contract: Permanent, subject to a satisfactory 6 month probation period and achieving agreed fundraising targets. 
Reporting to: Branch Manager
Location: Time Split between Home-Based and the York Animal Home – Landing Lane, York, YO26 4RH. The post will require regular travel around the York, Harrogate and District area.  

Over the last 18 months the organisation has gone through a significant period of change as we try to reduce our expenditure and increase our income to ensure the branch is sustainable for the future. The branch has no dedicated fundraising resource and has relied upon groups of local supporters to raise the money it requires to operate. The post holder will be required to develop and grow the branches existing fundraising activity in order to meet its fundraising target of £180,000 for 2021, with a view to grow this further in the future.

The Branch Fundraiser will be leading on all fundraising focussing primarily on:

  • digital fundraising,
  • individual giving,
  • corporate sponsorship,
  • events
  • community fundraising.

There is a good foundation to build upon, but there will be plenty of opportunity to put your stamp on the work of a well-respected local charity. You'll be a key part of a small team so we're looking for an individual who's willing to work hard and excited to get involved. 

It is an exciting time to be part of the organisation and we’re looking for an enthusiastic individual who can help us develop further and overcome the challenges that lie ahead.
