Community Fundraising Officer – Maternity Cover

Closing date: 27 January 2021
Fundraising Community
  • Salary £23,293 per year
  • Location Norwich, Norfolk
  • Job Type Contract, Full-time
  • Sectors Mental Health
  • Job Reference :

The post-holder will be responsible for ensuring fundraisers have a great experience supporting Beat, helping to maximise the amounts they raise, as well as coordinating a range of activities and events within the community fundraising programme which includes challenge events and DIY fundraising. 

Community fundraising is Beat’s most established area of income, generating approximately £550k per annum (before the coronavirus crisis). The success of Beat’s community fundraising is both a reflection on the hard work of our fundraising team and on the dedication, passion and creativity of our supporters, many of whom are motivated to support us because of their own experience or a loved one’s experience of an eating disorder. 

The ideal candidate for this role will be a real ‘people person’, someone who enjoys supporting and enthusing others to realise their aims. You will be prepared to try new things, learn when they go wrong and capitalise when they go right. You will be joining a team of four, including a Community Fundraising Manager and two other Community Fundraising Officers. Working together, you will take community fundraising forward through the uncertain times ahead, adapting as you go and thinking creatively about how we raise income and provide supporters with a fantastic fundraising experience in the new, socially distanced normal.

The role is based in our Norwich office with some home working possible in the short and longer term.
