Honeycomb is delighted to be working with a Nationwide charity, to recruit for an Executive Project Executive for an initial period of 6 months. This is a critical role for the charity and the successful person will work closely with the CEO.
Our client is the only charity across the UK focused on the abuse of older people and building a safer ageing agenda. The charity has a life-changing helpline which supports older people, families, professionals and practitioners by providing advice and guidance. The charity also works across all four nations to develop campaigns whilst lobbying for legislation change to protect and enhance the lives of older people at risk of abuse. The charity is undergoing a significant modernisation and change agenda and this is already seeing demonstratable benefits and impacts. This role fills an important part of the strategic jigsaw of the charity.
The charity are looking for a very special person to join their team. What's particularly interesting about this role is the variety and impact the postholder will have during a pivotal time for the charity. They are looking for an all-rounder - somebody who understands communications, projects, budgets, presentations and how innovation plays a part in raising money for charity. This is a truly one-off opportunity to help shape a charity with a new brand, new name and creating a real impact by changing the lives of the most vulnerable in our population - older people.
The job reports directly to the NI-based Deputy Chief Executive and will be working on creating narrative for new programmes and projects, ideas and innovations as well as ultimately shaping them for the Lottery Community Fund, the Governments and Assemblies across Northern Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland - as well as the general public. The role will take an idea or innovation and work with the Directors of the charity to really bring it to life - in terms of narrative, presentation and budgets. There is a need for the charity's stakeholders and funders to be excited and understand quite how essential the charity is - and build new narrative which will work for a variety of audiences.
The role doesn't require fundraising experience (but it would undoubtedly help); you don't necessarily need to have worked for a charity and you do not need any prior knowledge or understanding of working with older people or the age sector. Instead - what the charity need is someone organised, driven and with a good understanding of communications, marketing, project management and budget management.
Salary for this role is £30K
