Job Description

We are looking for a fundraising specialist to work for 16 hours a month on securing grants from charitable trusts and similar bodies.  The postholder will work on their own initiative at home, liaising with individual committee members on such matters as funding priorities, project descriptions and feedback to grant makers on how the money has been spent.


Our current fundraiser is retiring after more than 20 years’ service and will be leaving as soon as we are able to appoint a replacement.  We envisage offering an initial three-year contract but are open to negotiation.  We believe that the position is an excellent opportunity, enabling a fundraiser the flexibility to work an average of four hours per week from home at an attractive hourly rate. 

Further information

The Braille Chess Association is a small charity, founded nearly 90 years ago, and our role is to promote the playing of chess among blind and partially sighted people throughout the United Kingdom, to enable such people to enjoy chess and improve their chess playing techniques. We cater for players of all levels of ability and all ages and currently we have around 230 members.
