At Befriend a Child we believe every child deserves a happy childhood and the best chance in life to succeed and thrive. We support children and young people growing up in difficult life circumstances across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. We help them develop into confident young adults and achieve their full potential. We do this by matching them with trained volunteers who deliver 1:1 befriending and mentoring programmes, which over time have a transformational effect.

We are looking to recruit a Fundraising Coordinator to join our dynamic Fundraising and Marketing team and have responsibility for developing and delivering fundraising activities across a range of income streams. These primarily include income from individuals, schools, community groups, small companies, and 3rd party fundraising events. This essential role will develop, implement, and evaluate fundraising activities and campaigns that have defined targets and outcomes, with the support of the Head of Fundraising and Marketing.

If you are inspired by our cause, can demonstrate success achieved in a similar role, are organised with excellent communication skills, we would love to hear from you.  This is an exciting time to join the charity as we grow and develop our fundraising activities to support local children, young people and families.

This is a full time post, working 37.5 hours a week.  Our working day is generally 9.00am – 4.30pm with occasional evening and weekend work in which we operate flexitime and TOIL.  This role is based in our office at 9 Bon Accord Square Aberdeen with some hybrid working if desired.  A full clean driving licence and access to a car is essential due to the nature of the role.
