Part Time

Devon In Sight provides practical help and advice to people across Devon affected by sight loss. This is an exciting time of growth and service development in the Charity. We have recently launched a new Community Support Service which enables us to extend the provision of a broad range of support across much of the County. Whilst some funding has been secured to deliver this extended service (including from the BIG Lottery Fund), it is important that the Charity now broadens its fundraising activities to ensure financial sustainability for this project and for the Charity has a whole.

We are seeking an experienced Fundraiser who can develop and implement a successful programme of community and business fundraising. This will involve raising the charity's public profile so that potential donors feel engaged with, and supportive of, the cause. You will also have the opportunity to support the charity’s marketing activities and to drive its presence on social media.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a successful track record of both business and community fundraising and will be able to contribute to the on-going success of the Charity. Experience of identifying, developing and nurturing key relationships with individuals, groups and businesses, and recruiting volunteers to support fundraising activities will be essential, as will the ability to work with the senior team to develop and deliver a fundraising plan that will meet targets.

The charity is looking for someone who works well both in a team and independently, who is highly self-motivated and confident in their own abilities. You will be very organised, able to manage a number of projects and meet deadlines. Exceptional communication skills are naturally an essential requirement, as is IT expertise across the Microsoft packages.  You will be travelling across Devon and therefore you must have a driving licence and your own transport.  The nature of fundraising does mean that occasionally you may be required to work during the evening or at the weekend with time off in lieu. 

If you would like to be considered for this role, please email your CV and covering letter to Jackie Dawkins at Shine Charity Recruitment.
