Fundraising Manager

The Eric Liddell Centre (ELC) is a local care charity and community hub in the South West of Edinburgh delivering a range of services throughout the City.  Founded in 1980 in memory of the 1924 Olympic 400m gold medallist, Eric Liddell, our mission is to be at the heart of the community, enhancing health and wellbeing and improving people’s lives.

We are embarking upon a period of growth and development through to 2021. There is also a new vision for services for the local Community offered at the ELC linked to our Strategic Business Plan 2018 -21.

The Fundraising Manager will play a key role in developing the Fundraising strategy of the organisation and driving forward new initiatives and projects to assist the long-term sustainability of the Centre.  You will identify, generate and grow charitable income to underpin the ELC’s work in the community by managing a portfolio of funders and prospects, creatively stewarding existing relationships and maximising opportunities for giving.

If you have a proven track record in generating major income streams from trusts, foundations and grant funders and are passionate about enriching and supporting people’s lives, please get in touch. This is a full-time post subject to a successful probationary period.
