Are you looking for a career in fundraising or digital media and looking to build on your experience? We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed individual to join us. You’ll play a crucial role in helping to promote our work through social media, co-ordinating fundraising events, and helping to develop our community fundraising programme. This is an ideal opportunity for a creative individual with excellent organisational and communication skills to work with a local women’s charity to help us reach more survivors, and get more public support for our work.
We work in a highly sensitive environment in which client confidentiality is paramount, so you must be responsible and sensitive to the work we do.
If you’ve got experience of working or volunteering in community fundraising or digital communications within a charity, we would like to hear from you.
We are a small charity based in Leicester, supporting women survivors of childhood sexual abuse. We do this through a crisis and long-term counselling service and helpline, which aims to reduce distress and trauma of the women who use our services, and improve their mental health.
We have been in Leicester for over 25 years and our goal has always been to offer a specialist, high quality and accessible service to those who need it. We have three staff supported by a Board of Trustees, and run our services through a team of professional volunteers. Over the last year we have grown and expanded our services to offer outreach and telephone counselling, as more women come to us for help.
We are a flexible employer, and can negotiate a working pattern to suit, within certain requirements. We are in a central location in Leicester and easy to get to by public transport.
We are a women only organisation, in accordance with Schedule 9 (part 1) of the Equality Act 2010, this post is only open to women applicants.
