Summary of Role:
This is a brilliant opportunity for a Trust Fundraiser to take a step up and contribute to Groundswell’s overall fundraising strategy by managing important applications and relationships with some key funders. We are at an exciting time in our growth, as we approach an annual income of £1million for the first time ever and look to roll out our Health First strategy nationwide. By working for Groundswell you will benefit from a busy yet positive environment. There is no shortage of dedicated staff and volunteers full of ideas on how to develop our projects using participation to overcome homeless health inequalities.
