Many in our communities are in crisis, facing eviction, disconnection and food-poverty.

So, we need an exceptional fundraiser to support our mission.

The COVID-19 crisis has laid bare Britain’s fault lines. An estimated 4.6 million people already affected by debt have accumulated £6.1 million in new arrears, leading to depression, illness and family breakdown. We’re here to help them control their money and rebuild their lives via professional advice on debt management, budgeting and education – doing whatever it takes to remove the fear of bankruptcy and homelessness. That’s because we believe that nobody should have to choose between heating and eating. If you feel the same way, you can make an enormous difference with a unique and exceptionally worthwhile charity.

Taking charge of our fundraising, you will go the extra mile to ensure we have the funds we need to transform lives. Closely partnering the Chief Executive, you will be one of our most visible advocates as you engage with trusts, foundations, individuals and corporations. But that’s not all: you will guide the fundraising activities of our partner charities as you champion joined-up thinking whilst taking the lead in our supporter engagement activities. So needless to say, we’re looking for the best.

Chances are you will already have experience of trusts and a strong footprint in community or corporate fundraising, and you’ll be excited about stepping into senior management. You will certainly be passionate about supporting vulnerable people, adept at influencing diverse audiences and capable of building productive, lasting relationships. Above all, you will be a true self-starter who can make things happen, develop strategies that deliver, and think creatively to boost our bottom line – allowing us to do the same for our clients.

If people experiencing hardship can rely on you, we need to talk.
