We are currently recruiting for the following opportunities:
Located in Staffordshire, at the heart of the nation and part of The National Forest, the Arboretum is independently registered and part of the Royal British Legion family of Charities. The Arboretum will undergo a major transformation from summer 2015 through to autumn 2016 when a much needed new visitor centre and facilities will be constructed. A major capital campaign has been underway and over £10 million of the £15.7m target has been raised.
Against this exciting backdrop, the Arboretum is looking for a successful and dynamic Fundraising Officer who shares our values and can drive annual giving across a range of appeals and platforms. Reporting to the Head of Fundraising key responsibilities include:
The successful candidate must have proven fundraising experience to include direct-mail, membership based and person to person fundraising. Good interpersonal and communication skills are essential. Attendance and delivery of events outside normal working hours will be required and the ability to work under pressure and prioritise workload will be essential.
Closing date: Friday 13th March 2015.
Conceived as a living tribute to war-time generations of the twentieth century, and as a gift to their memory for future generations, planting began at the National Memorial Arboretum in 1997.
The project began with no money, no land and no staff. The original volunteers made the growth and development of the Arboretum possible and regular volunteers now number over 150. Getting involved in all areas, the volunteers keep the Visitor Centre running, lead guided walks, help out with grounds maintenance and much more besides!
