Fundraising Manager

Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby (GBWR) is creating an amazing opportunity for a committed, creative and experienced fundraiser to join our team. GBWR is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sport of wheelchair rugby in England, Scotland and Wales. In addition to the Great Britain team we have 22 teams across the country and we deliver programmes in Spinal Injury Units, military rehabilitation centres and as part of a growing number of charitable foundations such as those of Saracens, Harlequins and Exeter premiership rugby clubs; we also have a national youth programme. We work with a number of partners and are fortunate to have BT as our principal partner, but we are now looking to make a step change in our sponsorship and fundraising efforts.

We have never had a fundraiser in our team before and this is your opportunity to create something which you can be proud of. You will join a small, highly dynamic and focused management team which is totally committed to providing opportunities for disabled people to become part of vibrant wheelchair rugby communities. This is an exciting time to join us as we continue to grow and provide more wheelchair rugby to more people – if you are as excited about that as we are then we would like to hear from you.

This is initially a fixed term contract until 31 March 2018 based on 20 hours a week but with the expectation that it will become a permanent role for the right person.  Our Head Office is at Twickenham and the successful candidate will be expected to attend regular meetings there but this is essentially a home based role.
