Dyspraxia Foundation Job Vacancy : Fundraising Coordinator

2018 marked the 30th anniversary of the Dyspraxia Foundation, the UK’s only charity dedicated to raising awareness of dyspraxia, a neurological condition affecting fine and/or gross motor skills. We have achieved so much over the last three decades and aspire to create a sustainable future for our charity by building on our reputation and performance. We want to grow our offering and develop our capabilities, so that every donation we receive enables us to achieve that little bit more, from promoting better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia, to helping education and health professionals to assist those with dyspraxia, to doing all we can to promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia throughout society.

We are a forward-thinking charity who seek to involve service users in all that we do, and fundraising has a pivotal role to play in our future. Now, at a significant time in our development, we’re recruiting for a talented and experienced fundraising professional to join our team and take the lead on all nationwide fundraising activity.

The successful candidate, taking on the title of Fundraising Coordinator, will work in partnership with the Chief Executive Officer and Board of Trustees, tasked with identifying new fundraising opportunities as well as developing new channels. The role will be broad, covering large grant applications, trust funds, community and corporate fundraising, aligning with the fundraising strategy.  The role will predominantly be based at Dyspraxia Foundation HQ in Hitchin but comes with the opportunity for flexible working and is on a 24-month contract (but with the potential for extension).

To find out more, please view the job description and person specification. To apply, please send an up-to-date CV and covering letter outlining why this role is of interest to you and outlining what makes you a great candidate. This should be sent to Eleanor Howes, Chief Executive Officer, Dyspraxia Foundation, 8 West Alley, Hitchin, Herts, SG5 1EG or by email to admin@dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk. Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.

Closing date for applications: Thursday 31st January

Post:                      Fundraising Coordinator

Hours:                   35 hours per week, Monday – Friday (9am – 5pm)
