Job Description

About the Role
This is an exciting opportunity to join Leonard Cheshire - as a member of the fundraising department - at a time of unprecedented change for disabled people.

In this varied role you will support the Trusts and Philanthropy team to raise funds for our UK and International programmes and projects.

You will carry out administrative tasks to support the team, updating our database, carrying out research to identify new funding opportunities, and manage our regular appeals cycle to contribute to the Trust team’s unrestricted income target.

The role requires you to work very closely both across the team and with departments across the Charity.

About You
We are looking for a creative self-starter, with excellent attention to detail, strong organisational skills, and the ability to handle multiple, and varied tasks simultaneously. You will be keen to learn and to progress as part of a busy and high performing Trusts and Philanthropy team.

You will be educated to a degree level, with at least one year’s experience in a hands-on administrative role. You will be confident working with financial data, and proficient in using the whole Microsoft Office suite, particularly Excel.

You will have excellent communication skills – both written and verbal, with the ability to problem solve. You will have good research skills and a genuine commitment to Leonard Cheshire’s manifesto to work for a society in which every person is equally valued.

About Leonard Cheshire
Leonard Cheshire supports individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability. We are the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of services for people with disabilities. This is an exciting time to join us as we launch our new brand and grow our reach across communities.

What we Offer
We offer a wide range of employee rewards and benefits including:

  • Fair and competitive pay rates
  • A generous employer contribution to a company pension scheme with additional life cover benefit
  • Substantial and flexible annual leave, with the option to buy or sell leave
  • Access to a cash health plan at favourable rates
  • Access to cycle-to-work benefits
  • A comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme
