Fundraising Team (x4)
Beloved Rabbits are entering a new phase of ambitious development, that seeks to improve the charity’s financial strength as we work towards a three-year plan that will culminate in the opening of a new purpose designed rabbit welfare services centre.
To support the organisation’s operational vision, a Fundraising Strategy is being developed to underpin the funding necessary to achieve these goals.
We are looking for four new members of our management team to take on the roles as Fundraising Managers, critical roles identified within the Fundraising Strategy necessary to meet the fundraising objectives.
The role forms part of the charity’s two-tier management structure encompassing four charity trustees and 10 Management Team members. There is also a wider team of dedicated volunteers in excess of 100 individuals, which we anticipate growing in number as we expand our activities further.
Working as a team, under the leadership of the charity's Director and support of the whole volunteer team, our Fundraising Managers will share responsibility for the successful delivery of our fundraising objectives:
- Partnership Development
- Fundraising Events & Activities
- Grant Funding Applications
- Supporter Engagement
The role holder would also be expected to motivate volunteers and members of the public to engage with all aspects of fundraising as part of instilling a culture of “The Fundraising Conversation” needed to support the important rabbit welfare activities the charity undertakes.
It is anticipated that, with the support of the Board of Trustees and Management Team, the Fundraising Managers would recruit dedicated and casual volunteers to assist with the delivery of their activities.
The Skills You Need:
- Experienced in fundraising, either professionally or within a volunteering capacity.
- Interest in animal welfare
- Good organisational skills
- Attention to detail
- Work as part of a small team
- Leadership qualities
- Excellent Communication & Customer Service

What's In It For You?

- Be part of making a positive change to animal welfare in your area.
- Enjoy being part of a team of active and enthusiastic volunteers.
- Pivotal to the growth and development of a young Scottish charity.
- An invaluable way to turn a hobby into community benefit.
Due to the nature of the role:
- An interview process will be followed to select the right person.
- Details of the interview requirements will be shared upon application.
- Whilst the role is voluntary in nature, there is still an expectation of regular commitment to the charity’s activities.
- Applicants should ensure they have suitable availability to commit to the role.
- An initial probationary period may apply, at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.
This role reports directly to the charity’s Board of Trustees.
As with all roles at Beloved Rabbits this is an unpaid voluntary role.
Working from your own home, and events throughout Central Scotland.
Flexible, but as required. Most volunteers offer their time during evenings and weekends alongside other work and family commitments.
Part-time equivalent, estimated to be a 5-14 hours per week. Minimum commitment of 12 months due to charity investment in the role.
The role holder will also have the optional opportunity to act as a shift manager for one of our weekly Care Team shifts at our local centre.
