Job Vacancy: Head of Fundraising & Promotion
(Maternity Cover for Executive Director)
21-25 hours per week
Wellspring is a Christian charity based in Starbeck, North Yorkshire that offers affordable counselling and training to adults and young people.
Wellspring’s current Executive Director has been in post since June 2015. In the Autumn of 2020, she is due to start her maternity leave. This has given us an exciting opportunity to develop a new role within the team: Head of Fundraising and Promotion.
We are looking for a hard-working, driven team player who is passionate about promoting our cause with the aim of generating increased financial and relational support for the organisation.
The three main objectives of this role will be:
- To provide leadership, together with trustees and the management team, through maintaining a culture in line with Wellspring’s values and vision.
- To lead in maintaining and developing the organisations’ external relationships with stakeholders, donors, and other external bodies, leading to the promotion and increased financial support of the charity.
- To be responsible for all areas of fundraising to ensure the charity’s longevity and sustainability.
The charity is still in a time of development and growth, since moving into larger premises in 2018, to expand its services. Therefore, there is a possibility this role will be continued beyond a maternity cover position. This will be reviewed subject to the organisation’s needs and finances.
It is a genuine occupational requirement for this post holder to be a Christian, able to uphold and implement Wellspring’s Christian ethos, vision and values.
