Outward requires a fundraising officer to support fundraising within our organisation. The post holder will also provide administrative support as required within the New Business team.

Outward is a London based charity. The Fundraising officer will have the opportunity to see first-hand exactly what the money raised makes possible by adding value to our services.

The Role

Are you experienced and knowledgeable about fundraising, maybe having held a previous fundraising role?

Are you ready to help deliver Outward’s fundraising activity both within our organisation and externally?

We are looking for a creative-thinking fundraising officer, who will work with the New Business Manager to manage fundraising campaigns and take a lead in researching opportunities and making links with Trusts, Statutory Authorities and other appropriate bodies and individuals to raise funds.

With excellent attention to detail you will have a wide range of responsibilities including completing fundraising applications, maintaining all required fundraising records and providing administrative support as required within the New Business team.

As a newly-created role, this is a great opportunity to make it your own.

We employ more than 400 people, provide services in 9 London boroughs and work with many community volunteers who support our charitable activities. Our vision is that every person should have the opportunity to be valued, active participants in their communities; living the life they choose and breaking down barriers they face by support which engages, enables and empowers people towards further independence.

We want to secure voluntary income to do even more to support people to live active, fulfilling lives and to tackle the health and wellbeing impacts of the pandemic. The new Fundraising Officer is central in our ambitions to secure the income we need to achieve this.
