About Turn2us

Turn2us is a national charity that helps people through times of financial crisis, often caused by life changing situations like a bereavement or illness.

At Turn2us, we know that often it’s an unexpected event that can have the biggest impact on your life and working out where to get help can be very difficult. In a time of change or crisis, you need to know where you stand. That’s where we come in.

We support people through our grant giving service, website and helpline, and we also collaborate with specialist agencies and other organisations to help tackle the causes and symptoms of poverty.

During the Coronavirus pandemic Turn2us has been in the forefront of supporting people in our communities and we know that in the coming months the need for support is only going to grow. This is an exciting time to join a busy and dynamic team and being a part of the rebuilding our communities in these difficult times.

The opportunity

Over the last year, the organisation has seen an exceptional increase in the demand for our services and has been at the forefront of supporting families and individuals struggling because of the pandemic.

We have seen significant growth in income generation and we are now entering the next phase of our growth and the evolution of our fundraising function.

We are now keen for a creative Fundraising Manager to join our dynamic Income Generation team on this journey to supporting people to thrive.

About the role

About you

You will be an exceptional and multifaceted fundraiser, an excellent relationship manager with the skills to build upon our fundraising function within a growing charity.

You will have an entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for fundraising and working within a small team to build new high impact initiatives. 

You will be a true team player, eager to understand the work of the wider team and organisation’s ambitions and powerfully translate these for our supporters. 

An excellent project manager, you will have a natural ability to create processes that empowers agile decision-making rather than slow things down.

The role

The purpose of this role is to oversee the strategy and management of the organisation’s individual giving function. There will be a particular focus on building long term relationships with current supporters and building a mid-value programme based on donor centric supporter journeys. You will also build a pipeline of major donors.

This is a full-time and permanent position and, in addition to the above salary, Turn2us also offers a competitive benefits package.
