Are you an experienced fundraiser passionate about transforming education? East Kent Sudbury is looking for a dedicated individual to help us expand our reach and impact more children and young people than ever before. 

What will you be doing?

Why Join Us?

At East Kent Sudbury, we believe in re-imagining the future of education because we know that every child is unique—there is no standard child. By joining our team, you'll play a crucial role in shaping an educational environment that celebrates individuality and fosters growth.

About East Kent Sudbury

East Kent Sudbury is a part-time educational setting for Home Educated children aged 5-18 supplementing the home education provided by parents. Giving children the opportunity to benefit from connection and learning at home and in a community setting.

It is an education for today and for the future.  We recognise that in today’s world it is not an ability to follow orders but to take charge of your own life that is vital for success.  We believe the best way to practise making real decisions and taking responsibility for your actions is to do it from the start.  By being self-directed, children are in charge of their own education, their preparation for their future.  Democratic governance gives students a share in the responsibility for maintaining the community they are a part of, empowering them to enact change and to think beyond their own self-interests.

What You'll Do:

  • Develop Fundraising Strategies: Craft and implement effective fundraising campaigns to support our mission.
  • Engage with Donors: Build and maintain relationships with donors, sponsors, and community partners.
  • Plan and Execute Events: Help us to organise events that not only raise funds but also raise awareness about our innovative educational approach.
  • Promote Our Vision: Use various platforms to share our story and inspire others to support our cause.

What are we looking for?

Who We’re Looking For:

  • Experienced Fundraisers: You have a proven track record in fundraising and are ready to take on new challenges.
  • Passionate Advocates: You believe in our mission to create a personalised, dynamic and self-directed educational experience for every child.
  • Creative Thinkers: You bring fresh ideas and innovative approaches to fundraising and community engagement.
  • Team Collaborators: You work well with others and thrive in a collaborative environment.

What difference will you make?

Your help and expertise will enable us to adapt and survive, to scope new possibilities, activities and ways of working.

We believe that self-directed democratic education paves the way for a new definition of success. A definition that focusses on the joyful threads of humanity, happiness, fulfilment and the ability to actively engage in the society we live in. If this was a popular frame of reference for success then perhaps we would have an education system that promoted wellbeing above all else.

Your fundraising activities will help us thrive and make our long-term growth sustainable at a critical time.
