Harris Hill is thrilled to be assisting the fantastic charity, Group B Strep Support, in the search for a new Head of Fundraising at their office in Haywards Heath, West Sussex on a full or part time basis.

Group B Strep Support is a National charity that works across the UK, striving to prevent life-threatening group B Strep infections in new-born babies. They aim to inform every expectant parent of the dangers posed by group B Strep infection. If a pregnant woman is tested for group B Strep, she can be offered antibiotics in labour to minimise the risk to her baby - preventing illnesses such as sepsis, meningitis and pneumonia.

GBSS is looking for a creative Head of Fundraising who can create, implement and keep under review a new fundraising strategy for the charity. Their income comes from a narrow range of income streams events income and corporate fundraising. You will build on the current fundraising streams and look to grow their income via trusts and foundations, major donors and individuals.
The role is for someone to really make their own as you will be leading on creating and delivering the strategy. Ideally you will have implemented a stewardship plan that empowers and retains supporters, so you will come into this role with your creative cap on. You will be joining a wonderful small team who are incredibly passionate and driven fundraisers.

Ideally you will have a background of delivering within mixed income streams, but it is essential that you have had experience of securing four/ five-figure donations from Trusts & Foundations and HNWIs.

If you would like to receive a full job specification for this role or have a confidential conversation, please send your cv to hannah.laking@harrishill.co.uk or call Hannah at Harris Hill on 0207 820 7336.
