Interim Head of Community Fundraising

Social welfare

£53,000 to £58,000

About the role

We are looking for someone to lead the team responsible for the strategy and delivery of an 8-figure community product.

With two Senior Managers reporting to you, each leading a geographical region, and a team of 75 in total across the country, this post is the main strategic lead pulling together the campaign.

There are two key aims of this role over the 9 month contract:

  • Building on incredible foundations, to conduct a strategic review of the product and the team, devising a refreshed strategy and suggestions for any changes to improve and tidy the current system
  • Ensure the team’s successful delivery of the 2022 fundraising campaign

The Interim Head of Community will bring a consultancy-style approach to the assignment, in order to make a strategic assessment of the future needs of the team to reinvigorate the already hugely successful and high-performing team.

There will be a permanent need for this role, and the Interim may decide to stay on in the role, but we are equally happy to hear from candidates who prefer short-term contracts.

Previously this role has been the media lead for all TV and radio appearances – the incumbent will have the opportunity to take this on, but the media side can also be covered internally if the incoming postholder prefers to stay out of the limelight!
