Have you the passion and drive that inspires every supporter to experience the Joy of Giving?
Three children die in Scotland each week from an incurable condition. Presently, CHAS is only able to reach one of those children and their families. We are determined to change that.
Our ambition is to be there for each and every one of those children and their families. To achieve this, we need to inspire people across Scotland to take our vision to their hearts and make sure that no child with a life-shortening condition or their family should go without having the opportunity to be supported by CHAS.
To ensure we achieve this mission, we are establishing a new team as part of our five-year “Joy of Giving” fundraising strategy. With the recent appointment of CHAS’ first ever Head of Supporter Engagement who will join the team shortly, our intention is to bring together exceptional fundraising professionals to drive forward our award winning Keep the Joy Alive campaign. Is this you?
If you thrive on the challenge of setting and achieving audacious goals, think the only way to approach a target is to smash it out the park, have the playful creativity that doesn’t ever settle for the moon on a stick, and can bring the energy that adds that unexpected sparkle to how you approach your fundraising, then CHAS would love to support you in reaching out and touching your fundraising stars.
Magic is what happens if you are someone that can transform kilobits of data into incredible moments of joy for the children and families we support as a result of awesome data-driven fundraising campaigns that smash targets. You will support your colleagues to “love” their data, harnessing insight to develop marketing campaigns and fundraising products that inspire and grow support
