We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary in 2019, have recently launched our Strategy to 2022 and have a clear vision for the next three years supported by ambitious income targets. This is a key outward facing, leadership role within the organisation which will be central to us realising our ambition, responsible for securing significant levels of funding and developing strong strategic partnerships across the sectors in which we operate - employability, education, health, social work, regeneration etc.
We are looking for someone who is dynamic and experienced in business development; someone who can demonstrate considerable experience in successfully generating income and writing compelling bids and who wants to join us in our mission in tackling inequalities across Scotland.
Are you gifted at gaining support from trusts and foundations for good causes?
Do you love bringing projects to life for potential funders through your creative writing?
Are you passionate about the arts?
We are seeking a dynamic individual to work closely with our Head of Development to drive forward the company’s revenue and capital fundraising strategies, with a specific focus on achieving income targets for trusts and foundations. You will be joining one of Scotland’s leading theatre companies at a vital and exciting chapter in its history as an extensive £21.5m redevelopment of the Citizens Theatre gets underway.
To be successful in this role, it is essential you have a proven track record of informing development plans and achieving fundraising targets. Given the nature of funding applications, you will be happy working on your own initiative whilst being part of a supportive and engaged team. Whilst previous experience of working in theatre is not essential, you will have a genuine interest in the arts and derive satisfaction from being part of a committed team who are passionate about making great theatre in Scotland and involving the people of Glasgow in the transformative power of the performing arts.
The Self-Directed Support Forum, East Renfrewshire is a local organisation for anyone who is thinking about directing their own support or that of someone they care for. We also support individuals and families who are already directing an existing social care package.

This mission is brought to life by a staff of 30 who are located around the country. In addition, groups of volunteers run nine branches around Scotland who offer an invaluable peer support network at local level.

Key attributes must include being:
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.
Great fundraising campaigns don’t just happen. They are planned with precision and executed with passion and pin sharp focus. They need that someone who has the courage to push themselves out of their comfort zone and take others with them. They make lots of things happen, quickly, in all the right order and bring everyone with them to campaign launch day and beyond. They make this look easy. Is this you?
You will lead the delivery of CHAS acquisition and retention strategies. Flair and creativity will see you work with colleagues to harness direct marketing techniques and you will have a proven track record on executing integrated multi-channel campaigns that deliver target-beating results.
