Head of Fundraising & Marketing (GE2019064) at The Grace Eyre Foundation

Grace Eyre is a Sussex based charity supporting and being led by what people with learning disabilities and autism tell us is important. We are embarking on our ‘Big Build’ – refurbishing our main building in Hove to a state of the arts theatre, offices and flats. We also run a number of projects where raising funds from trusts and foundations is crucial to their survival and where our supporters help us achieve our goals. This is a really exciting time for us – but a challenging one as well.

We are looking to recruit an experienced and creative Head of Fundraising & Marketing to develop and lead our new Fundraising and Marketing Strategy, to build a team of fundraisers, marketing co-ordinators and where all our supporters are keen to be a ‘Grace Eyre Fundraiser and Ambassador’. This post holder will be pivotal in leading our new strategic plan – Our Plan 2020-2025.

The successful applicant will need to have experience in fundraising and marketing, even better if this has been gained by working with people with learning disabilities, their families and friends. You will be part of the senior management team and as such will be able to influence the direction of the charity. We are looking for strength in raising money, marketing, and someone who can inspire a staff team. You need to be able to manage projects successfully from planning to delivery and completion. If you think you would thrive in this role we would love to hear from you. For your skills and energy, we can offer good terms and conditions of service and a positive, vibrant working environment.
