  • £20,516 FTE (pro rata for part time hours) 
  • Carers in Bedfordshire’s Bedford Office, Pilgrim Centre, Brickhill Drive, Bedford MK41 7PZ

We help families affected by dementia navigate a seamless route through services available to them, guiding them along the way. 

We are looking for someone with experience working with people with dementia or memory loss and carers to join our busy team of staff and volunteers.

These include one-to-one support, both over the phone and face to face, and group activities including cognitive stimulation activities, carer groups, information sessions for people living with dementia and carers and training.

Community Engagement and Fundraising Coordinator Ref: CEFRC2020 

  • 16 - 21 hours per week 
  • £22,246-23,700 FTE (pro rata for part time hours) 
  • Carers in Bedfordshire’s Bedford Office, Pilgrim Centre, Brickhill Drive, Bedford MK41 7PZ 

We are fortunate to have supporters who regularly give to us to sustain and grow the wide range of services we offer to local carers. We could not maintain the range of services we offer without the voluntary income we receive.  

We are now looking for a Coordinator to take our community engagement and fundraising to the next level. With a track record of hitting robust targets, you will excel in identifying and engaging supporters, giving them both the practical support and inspiration to help them in their fundraising efforts. You’ll be persuasive when you’re talking about the work we do, so that local groups and businesses will be excited about supporting and working with us. But you’ll also have an eye for process, be financially literate and experienced in working with a database.  

If you are an experienced fundraiser, a people person, a numbers person and are inspired about helping a growing local charity achieve even more for local people, we would like to hear from you.  

  • We offer flexible working in a supportive, friendly working environment. As an employer, we know that family and life outside work is important and we are as flexible as we can to support all aspects of our staff’s wellbeing. 
  • Talk to us if you would prefer to work some hours from home, some out of office hours 
  • We may be able to offer more hours in due course if targets are fully met
