We currently have the following vacancies:

Post: Fundraising Officer
Hours: 20 hrs per week
Salary: £24,313 – £25,295 (pro rata) per annum

Here at DRC, we support over 4500 disabled people every year, helping them to gain independence and move closer to achieving their goals. To do this, we need to raise over a million pounds each year – and we’re looking for a very special person to help us do this and join our Fundraising and Marketing Team.

No two days will be the same in this exciting, varied new role – you will be researching trusts and foundations, writing funding applications, engaging support of the local community, producing engaging content for our website and social media and helping us drive our marketing and fundraising strategy forward. And as a small charity, you’ll see the results of your efforts and will be able to witness first hand just what an impact the funds you raise can have.

We’re looking for someone with strong writing skills and great people skills, who is passionate about helping disabled people. Although we’d like to see some fundraising experience, we will help train you – the most important thing is your determination to raise funds to help support our work.

Although ideally based in our Birmingham office, home working will be considered. For more information, please download the DRC Fundraising and Marketing Officer JD or call Steve Moralee for an informal chat about the role on 03030 40 20 40. To apply for the role, please either use the DRC application form (link above) or send a CV and cover letter to smoralee@disability.co.uk

Closing date for submissions: We are reviewing applications as we receive them and interviewing on a rolling basis, so we recommend sending in your completed application as soon as possible.
