We’re recruiting a Fundraiser

Join our amazing team taking our charity to new heights and help us sustain a community which has supported thousands of Edinburgh’s and Lothian’s most vulnerable.

Are you a great communicator with a passion for inclusive communities and social enterprise? We’re looking for a part-time Fundraiser, 2 days per week, to complete grant applications and undertake fundraising activities to help the Grassmarket Community Project (GCP) flourish. The role is flexible and can be mostly carried out from home and tailored to your current life or work commitments. Ideally you will be able to visit the programmes regularly to learn about and enjoy the community’s wide range of activities, events and support. An appropriate working pattern can be agreed.

We are looking for someone with excellent written and verbal communication skills to best present our community to prospective and existing funders, donors and friends. Reporting to the CEO, you will be responsible for applying and reporting on grant funding and managing existing and prospective funder and donor relations. As part of the team, the role may also involve community fundraising initiatives, partnerships (e.g. groups undertaking sponsored events, or corporate firms), and delivering talks to visiting groups and supporters involving a wide variety of different needs and abilities. You will be able to work on your own initiative, manage deadlines and prioritise your workload to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
