Fundraiser Officer

  • 21 hours per week (negotiable)
  • £32,195 pro rata plus benefits

We are looking for a creative, confident, and experienced individual, ideally with a charitable organisation background, to join us to support and promote the work of Families Outside through a fundraising and business development programme.

Families Outside is the only national organisation in Scotland working exclusively on behalf of families affected by imprisonment. The organisation exists because the negative impact imprisonment has on the children and families left behind, often leading to longer-term hardship and exclusion. Our purpose is to improve outcomes for children and families affected by imprisonment so they can live lives free from stigma and disadvantage.

We are now recruiting for a Fundraising Officer at a time of growth for our organisation. This is an exciting opportunity to work in collaboration with a small team, working closely with colleagues and with responsibility for embedding a fundraising strategy to ensure Families Outside can address the immediate impact of imprisonment on the families left behind and inspire longer-term structural change. This new role is designed to play an important part in delivering these aims and objectives while ensuring our viability, effectiveness, and impact.

With experience in fundraising, income generation, and proven experience of relationship management, you would be able to identify, contact, and develop potential new funding relationships and manage existing ones. You will be a professional with excellent communication skills and able to set priorities for your own work and for the work of others.

If you are this person, then we want to hear from you.
