Full Description

Scotland is on track to be one of the first countries in the world to achieve zero HIV transmissions, and Waverley Care will play an essential role in getting the country there. A positive HIV diagnosis still has the power to knock people off their feet and impact every part of their lives. People living with HIV still carry the burden of decades of discrimination and misinformation about HIV. HIV is treatable, but the stigma and shame surrounding HIV holds people back and makes it different to other lifelong conditions. Stigma and the fear of an HIV diagnosis still prevents many people who are at risk of getting a test and knowing their status.

Waverley Care’s vision is for there to be a Scotland where no one faces, HIV alone. They aim to achieve this by fighting stigma and empowering people living with HIV to live full and healthy lives.

Waverley Care is Scotland’s leading HIV and hepatitis C charity, and everything they do is guided by the experiences of the people they work with. Waverley Care are at an exciting point in their history as they strive to reach the goal of zero transmissions by 2030. They are in the first year of an ambitious new strategic plan, and they are investing in digital transformation, communications and policy. They also aim to significantly increase their fundraising to invest in support and prevention work across Scotland.

Waverley Care is now looking for an ambitious Fundraising Development Manager to join and lead the growing fundraising team. The team are about to embark on an incredible fundraising journey which will see them significantly increase their unrestricted income over the next 5 years. The Fundraising Manager will manage a Community and Events Lead Fundraiser, a Trust and Grants Fundraiser and a Fundraising Administrator.

Alongside the leading of the fundraising team, you will deliver on fundraising and work to grow the individual donor base. You will work towards tripling Waverley Care’s fundraising income over the next 5 years.

We are looking for someone who is a natural relationship builder and is passionate about using their stills to help Waverley Care to achieve its strategic aims. If you are an experienced fundraiser and are looking to take a step up in your career, or are currently a fundraising manager looking for an exciting new challenge this is the perfect opportunity for you. You will have demonstrable experience of securing income in previous roles. Ideally you will have knowledge and/or experience of corporates/individual giving. The ability to inspire and lead a team is essential.
