Appointment of a Head of Fundraising
Every day someone in the UK takes their life because of gambling. Gambling with Lives (GwL) was set up by bereaved families in 2018 and since then it has had a remarkable impact on the discourse around the dangers of gambling and the case for gambling reform. The charity is also developing innovative programmes around supporting bereaved families, education provision, information and research.
The purpose of this newly created role is to develop and deliver a fundraising strategy for the long-term sustainability of the charity which will allow it to grow its impact. The charity’s financial position is strong, however its ambitions are such that new and sustainable income is required. The challenge for the successful candidate will be to find and develop sources of income that are free from the influence of the gambling industry and fit the charity’s values, goals and ambitions. The charity’s leadership believe these will likely lie within trusts and foundations with interests in the charity’s programmes (mental health, family support, research, education and treatment) as well as corporate giving.
What they are looking for
They are looking for someone with a significant track record of raising funds from multiple income streams, including trusts and foundations, corporates, high net worth individuals, government and public bodies, as well as experience of growing and developing an organisation’s fundraising and income generation capability. The role holder will work as part of a senior management team and will become an important advocate in their own right. They will take a leadership role in steering the charity’s strategy and development.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a flourishing organisation, and to create a role with the backing of a charity that has substantial resources for its stage of development. They are looking for a Head of Fundraising who shares their passion and determination for the work they are doing. If you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of GwL, then they would be delighted to hear from you.
