Signal has an opportunity for an individual with experience in and enthusiasm for the third sector to join its team. We are recruiting a full-time Grants Fundraiser, after extending a previously part-time post. Because of the rapid increase in services and projects undertaken by Signal, a new full-time post is required.
Signal is a small UK charity dedicated to supporting deaf people and people with hearing impairments both at home and overseas. The charity was created in October 2013 by the joining together of the Woodford Foundation and the Shropshire Deafness Association, which had collectively been in existence for over 160 years.
The main purpose of this role is to increase the contributions from grants to Signal’s work. The Grants Fundraiser will achieve this by identifying and researching funding opportunities, developing and writing grant applications and managing relationships with trusts, foundations and other funders. The post holder will also assist the management team with institutional and other large fundraising proposals. The successful candidate will be expected to raise in the region of £200,000 per annum.
The post is based in Signal’s Shrewsbury office, although, for the right individual there may be the option of working from home.
