Alzheimer's Society

Summary:

We have an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to join the Community Fundraising team at Alzheimer’s Society Cymru.  The environment is fast-paced, creative and inspiring and combines the requirement for you to be out and about in the community, working with our wonderful fundraising supporters, as well as spending time in our local offices in South West Wales, performing a range of admin and database led tasks and attending team meetings.

About Us:

Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity.  We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

Job Role:

If you have a passion and skill for supporting volunteer fundraisers, this is an exciting opportunity for you to build on your volunteer management experience, and truly make your mark in this rapidly expanding charity.

You will be joining a team of three other community fundraisers covering and raising funds in their own areas as well as working with the corporate, legacy and memory walk fundraisers for Wales.

About you
We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person who has excellent experience of working with donors and volunteers. We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running and has ideally worked within a similar role or can demonstrate the relevant skills and experience required in the job description.

You will need to be an excellent communicator and confident in contacting supporters over the phone as well as giving presentations to various groups, associations and local businesses.  You will need to demonstrate your ability to be a real team player, as well as having the ability to work well on your own initiative.  This is a busy and demanding role often with conflicting deadlines so the ability to prioritise your workloads and have an organised, methodical approach is essential.

You will have experience of recruiting, managing and working with volunteers to deliver organisational objectives as well as a proven track record in achieving financial and non-financial targets and good working knowledge of budgets is also essential.

The successful candidate will benefit from working in a dynamic and well-supported team where you will have a direct impact on the lives of people affected by dementia.

If this sounds like you then we’d love to hear from you!
