Fundraising Officer

Ring20 is seeking a Fundraising Officer to join our team to support our existing Fundraising Manager and help the Trustees deliver their fundraising objectives. The role will include researching and applying to companies and charitable trusts, as well as exploring other donor sources e.g. Challenge Events and member fundraising support.

Financial position and future goals:

Ring20, a small charity with a current income of £18,370 for core funding is seeking to move to its next development stage aiming to support research into the condition and a target income of £50,000 per year

Key responsibilities:

Ring20 is seeking further funds from charitable trusts who focus on supporting the medical and healthcare charitable community. We are seeking a Fundraising Officer to support the process of researching appropriate trusts, writing bids, and managing relationships as well as exploring other funding streams.

• The volunteer will ideally work from home using their own personal computer but would be in regular contact with the Trustees, reporting to Allison Watson/ Don Gordon, co-founders and Trustees.

• The Fundraising Officer should have a minimum of 2-3 years' experience in a similar role and a track record of appropriate success.

• The Fundraising Officer will have operating autonomy in the role and help develop strategy including the potential to look at Corporate Funding, Challenge Events and support member/supporter fundraising activities.

• This is an ongoing role, which we estimate to require about four days per month, subject of discussion.


• Self-starter

• Planning and development

• Writing fundraising applications

• Fundraising events

• Researching funders

Person description:

Well-qualified candidates will have experience of fundraising through grant funding and a reasonable track record of success. Good writing skills, strong verbal communication and the ability to interact at management level are other key qualifications. An interest in the promotion of medical advancement and helping those in need would be an advantage.

What impact the opportunity will have

The role is important to the next stage of the charity's development and providing hope to those with this epileptic condition by research into the condition and its incidence.

A good Fundraising Officer would provide hope for the future and enable the charity to continue supporting its current client patient base and raise research funds for dedicated medical professionals.

If this motivates you we would be pleased to hear from you.

What's in it for the volunteer?

You would join a small but friendly team of Trustees and volunteers and could make a real difference towards meeting the charity's goals and objectives.

We have contacts with senior neurological consultants and anybody interested in medical advancement should find this an interesting and absorbing role.

Please send a brief covering letter outlining why you're interested in the role, and a CV of relevant experience. We look forward to hearing from you!
