Leeds Mencap is looking for a creative and experienced fundraiser to increase the number of people who support our services for people with a learning disability and their families. The role is temporary for up to one year to cover the current postholder's maternity leave.
Leeds Mencap is a busy, friendly and ambitious local charity based in East Leeds but operating city wide. Based at The Vinery Centre, we have a thriving community nursery and room hire enterprise running alongside our specialist services for children and young people with learning disabilities and their families. We are an independent local charity and we need to raise all our own funds.
You will need to be proactive and flexible in your approach and you'll be able to hit the ground running. You’ll have excellent communication and writing skills and be able to craft stories that inspire and engage supporters. You’ll be a self-starter who can manage their own workload and be willing to get stuck in.
In return you’ll work in a supportive team in a bright and airy building which is humming with a wide range of activities. The children in our on-site community nursery never fail to entertain. We can offer flexible working and a generous annual leave entitlement with company sick pay entitlement from the first day of employment.
Even better, you’ll go home each day knowing you have made a difference to the lives of people who have a learning disability. This is a fantastic opportunity to join an ambitious local charity and we look forward to hearing from you.
