Job Description

Why work for The Bridge? There are a hundred reasons.

Maybe you’ve known someone suffer without help, or try without success to make positive changes in order to move forward? Join us and you can help change lives.

Everyone at The Bridge has heaps of energy and positivity, and we are lucky to say we start every day knowing we can make a difference to local people. We are a small charity, but we’re also a close-knit family that’s organised, focussed and driven.

There are loads of great benefits to working for The Bridge, such as the extra holiday days or the flexible working. However, these benefits are not why you join in the first place... or why you stay. From day one you’ll receive all the training you need. Here, helping you develop your career and skills is a top priority. We value you, partly because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it really helps you achieve what you came to The Bridge for: changing other people’s lives for the better.

The Community Engagement Lead is a new role, providing a unique opportunity to support the ongoing sustainability of The Bridge during an exciting time of change for the charity. This is an engagement and fundraising position, working with a variety of supporters of the charity’s important work, including developing a team of volunteer ambassadors and fundraisers.

The Community Engagement Lead will work closely with the fundraising team, and wider Senior Leadership Team to develop and deliver the fundraising strategy and will involve developing new and existing community fundraising products, growing the third-party events programme, and attracting small grant and trust fund donations and supporting the growth of corporate partnerships. The role will also support the Communication and Engagement Officer and the Grants and Trusts Fundraiser.

The role requires someone with excellent relationship building skills and substantial previous experience in community engagement and generating unrestricted income. The role necessitates a strong communicator across various platforms (in person and on/offline) who enjoys working collaboratively with others as well as taking ownership in their role. Most importantly, they will be passionate about raising funds to eradicate and prevent future homelessness.
