Community Fundraising Officer
MAG (Mines Advisory Group)

Job Description

Manchester City Centre

£23,016 - £26,040 per annum (plus contributory pension)

As the only UK aid and development charity to have shared the Nobel Peace Prize, Mines Advisory Group (MAG) is an energetic, inspiring and forward thinking organisation. Wars and conflicts erupt, subside and end. But they leave behind millions of landmines, unexploded bombs and unsecure arms. These pose an every-day danger for decades and disrupt the lives of communities for generations. At MAG, we believe that whenever and wherever wars happen, ordinary people should not be the ones who pay the price.

We are looking for a driven and enthusiastic individual to join our fundraising team. You will work closely with other fundraisers to maximise opportunities and will be responsible for running MAG’s community fundraising programme. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop an effective community and events fundraising strategy in a Nobel Peace-Prize co-recipient international charity and you’ll be supported throughout by our dedicated and knowledgeable Fundraising Team.

Based in our Manchester HQ, this will be a varied and challenging role where you will act as the first point of contact for community-based fundraisers, the public and media. You will recruit new and steward existing community fundraisers to generate unrestricted income for MAG through a programme of communications, events and awareness building activities.

You will have previous experience of working within a community fundraising role and be interested in MAG’s humanitarian mandate. You will be an excellent communicator and team player and be able to develop relationships with supporters. You will also recognise that volunteers can make a real difference to MAG’s success in saving lives and building futures.  Overall, you will be an outgoing team player, pro-active, determined and keen to help MAG achieve its lifesaving work.

Training and professional development opportunities are available for the right candidate.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
