Are you an experienced Fundraiser with a passion for building relationships and raising funds in your local community? Do you have a knack for identifying opportunities and maximising support? If so we need you!

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the fundraising team at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home to join us as Community Fundraiser (East), working alongside our Community Fundraiser (West) and the wider fundraising team. Covering Edinburgh, East Lothian and Mid Lothian (split by postcode) you will be responsible for generating support for the Home through volunteering, community events such as gala days and exhibitions, building relationships with individuals, local business, groups and schools as well as growing our Companion and kennel/cat pen sponsorship programmes within your patch.

This is an incredibly busy role so we are looking for someone with strong organisational skills who can prioritise and build volunteer support to help them maximise opportunity in their area. To succeed, you will need to be a real people person with a passion for animal welfare.
