About NOAH Enterprise
NOAH helps people experiencing homelessness, extreme poverty, and other disadvantages to make positive changes in their lives. During their 34-year history, they have earned a reputation across Bedfordshire for effectively supporting those who are street homeless, especially EU migrants, and for helping people with very little confidence to get into work. They work with those who are hardest to work with, those not supported by ‘mainstream’ support services, and work effectively with these people because they earn their trust. Their incredible team of staff and volunteers not only all manifest NOAH’s values, but many have lived experience of the issues our beneficiaries face.
There is much more for NOAH to do, and their 2021-26 strategy seeks to build on their strengths and respond to the need. They have a broad remit, an ambitious strategy, a talented Board, and a committed staff team. They are now seeking a Head of Fundraising to lead their income generation and communications functions.
Head of Fundraising role
NOAH is looking for a committed and motivated individual to join them as Head of Fundraising. Reporting in to the CEO, this role will have overall responsibility for the management, growth, and diversification of NOAH’s restricted and unrestricted fundraising. This will involve overseeing their retail and marketing social enterprises, and growing income from these sources and also the strategic management of NOAH’s internal and external communications.
They are seeking a self-starter who is target driven and has an entrepreneurial mindset. Increasing their statutory funding is a key part of their strategy, so strong experience in this area as well as wider fundraising experience is ideal.
Candidates must have excellent interpersonal skills, be willing to be an active ambassador for NOAH and have a real empathy and passion for the work they do. They’re a passionate and very committed team.
They work within particularly diverse areas, and it is important that the team is representative of the communities that they serve. They would particularly welcome applications from people from an ethnic minority background who are currently under-represented on the staff team.
This role presents an opportunity to work with an established organisation at an exciting point in its development. They are looking for a Head of Fundraising who shares their passion for the work they are doing. If you want to play a leading part in shaping the future of NOAH’s services, then we would love to hear from you.
