We have an opportunity for a Trust Fundraiser to join our small and friendly team based in Market Deeping near Peterborough. We may also consider applications from Freelance Trust Fundraisers working remotely, though travel to the office and London will be required. This is a part-time position (14 hours per week) offered on a two year contract with a salary of £25,000 – £28,000 per annum pro rata, dependent on experience.
Facial Palsy UK believes that any person affected by facial palsy should have access to the best information, treatment and support available. A recent study found it takes patients with facial palsy on average over five years to access specialist help. We urgently need to transform the way health professionals and the general public think about facial palsy. In order to meet the growing demand for our services we aim to double our fundraising income in the next eight years.
This is an exciting time to join us and you would have the opportunity to grow this role. Facial Palsy UK is a young charity established 2012 and this is the first fundraising role in our organisation. We need you to be involved at the early stage of planning our programmes, to understand our work and our developing needs.
About the role
