Scotland based: blend of office (Edinburgh) and home working
35 hours per week
Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that they can love later life.
We support and enable hundreds of communities and older people’s groups across Scotland. We provide information, friendship and advice through our free helpline and publications. We tackle loneliness and isolation with our Friendship Line and much more.
We work in Scotland with older people’s groups who provide vital activities and services for older people in their local community. We campaign on the issues that older people tell us are important to them.
Our Fundraising & Marketing Team are looking for a Community Fundraiser to take a lead role in generating and maximising income from community fundraising activities with a focus on challenge/sponsored events, bespoke Age Scotland events, private and street collections, static collection boxes, fundraising volunteers, and local businesses.
The post will be a blend of office based (in Edinburgh) and home-based work.
Due to the Covid outbreak in the UK, we have adapted our way of working to ensure the ongoing delivery of services, while minimising risk to our employees. Depending on guidance from the Scottish Government regarding the lifting of lockdown restrictions, this role may initially be completely home based, incorporating office work and face to face contact when it is safe to do so.
In return for your expertise and commitment to our values you’ll receive a generous holiday allowance, a range of learning and development opportunities, optional healthcare benefits and a contributory pension scheme with employer contributions of up to 9%.
Full details of the role are available below. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries about this role.

Due to the ongoing Covid situation, all our staff are currently working from home with access to the office granted only for business critical purposes. We are therefore unable to accept postal applications at this time.
Closing date: 12 noon on Thursday 28 October 2021.
Interviews will take place via Zoom (video conferencing software) on Tuesday 9 November 2021.
