The Stroke Association is the UK's leading charity dedicated to conquering stroke. There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK - almost two thirds have a disability and one third rely on others for help, making stroke one of the biggest causes of disability.
This is a very exciting time to join the Stroke Association, and this opportunity presents an ambitious fundraising leader with a real opportunity to make their mark. The Stroke Association is preparing a new five-year organisational strategy which will set out a new vision for conquering the devastating human consequences of stroke. This role will lead the Stroke Association's fundraising work with community groups, mass participation events, in memoriam funds and mid-value corporate support. With a significant increase in funding required, the successful candidate will play a vital role in shaping, and then leading the implementation of a new strategy for support from these key stakeholders.
This role will suit an accomplished leader with demonstrable, progressive personal experience of developing events and regional fundraising (or with similar commercial experience leading field-based sales teams). The successful candidate will lead and motivate a large team of talented and ambitious fundraising specialists - driving and ensuring team performance whilst cultivating a confident, collegiate and professional team culture.
In order to be considered for this role you will bring significant experience of managing high performing, geographically dispersed staff teams and of supporting their personal development. You will have excellent interpersonal skills, a proven track record in building long term value and of meeting revenue targets. You will have an ability to develop productive relationships both internally and externally, and demonstrate a commitment to the Stroke Association's corporate values.
