Full Time
Would you like to be part of a very special charity that for its size makes a huge impact on the community it serves? And be the person who ensures it connects with the people it supports and the people who support it?

We are Embrace (formerly Bedford & District Cerebral Palsy Society), and we enable people with complex disabilities and their families to live life their way by unlocking possibilities and embracing life.

We are looking for a Grants Fundraiser to lead our fundraising efforts through our 70th year and beyond.

This is a new role, with the most important traits being a genuine passion for the aims and values of our charity, a desire to work flexibly as part of a small, highly committed team, and the ability to make positive things happen in the fundraising space. You must be able to communicate with very different people in different grant giving settings.

You might join us with significant professional grant fundraising experience, or you may have been an active grant fundraising volunteer with other charities, schools or hospitals. You may be a recent graduate or someone returning to the workplace, or deep into your fundraising career. What is important is that you can bring bright ideas to life and action well thought through grant fundraising applications.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to enable us to grow a sustainable, annual income, through planning and executing successful grant applications and reporting. You’ll also need to identify and deliver future grant fundraising opportunities to grow core income.

We are flexible about hours and hybrid working, but you will need to be prepared to come into the Bedford office on a regular basis.

Do you want to make our 70th year and beyond aspirational, impactful and sustainable? Then come and join us at this critical time and continue our journey as we continue to extend our legacy.
