Fundraising Officer

Just for Kids Law is proud to have a diverse and inclusive workforce, and we are looking to build on this and support applications from all parts of society.

Just for Kids Law transforms the lives of some of the most disadvantaged young people in London and beyond. It has direct frontline contact with young people, but it also leads in influencing national policy in key areas, so there’s always something new and interesting going on. It’s a vibrant charity, with strongly committed staff, and the CEO, Senior Management Team and Trustees are actively involved in helping with fundraising. We’re also increasingly involving young people who have used our services in participating in our work, and there’s an exciting opportunity for the fundraising team to develop ways for young people to be involved appropriately in fundraising.

This role could suit someone who already has some experience in fundraising, but we are also keen to hear from those with transferable skills, especially if you have done business development, marketing, or similar, in a paid or unpaid role. A significant part of the role will be fundraising from trusts and foundations, so you’ll need to enjoy writing persuasive applications and reports with an attention to detail and to the needs of the funder. You will be involved across the whole fundraising mix, engaging with major donors, companies and individuals fundraising for us. You and the Head of Fundraising & Development will each have a varied and manageable portfolio of current and potential donors, allowing you to take ownership of your work, with as much or as little support and mentoring as you need. You’ll also lead on pulling together media content for fundraising, such as case studies, newsletters and social media posts, working closely with the Communications Officer. This could involve talking to colleagues and young people, and writing things up yourself, or commissioning others to write/record/film material. The role has a potential salary range of £28,700 - £32,800 per year, depending on skill and experience.

To apply, please complete the application form CVs will not be accepted.

Closing time for all applications is midnight on the 23rd January 2022.

Interviews will be held the week commencing 7th February 2022. If you have not heard from us by the 31st January 2022 you have not been selected for an interview. Unfortunately, we cannot give feedback to unsuccessful applicants.
