Scope & identify new funding opportunities not in pipeline; to include commercial partnerships, sponsorship and large scale Charity of the Year partnerships. To assist in preparations for applications &/or pitch
Enthusiasm, thoroughness, positivity and determination at the moment!
Experience of researching funders (or similar research) to add to our pipeline, to support our enthusiastic, welcoming, high-performing team who are under a lot of pressure at the moment. An ability to identify relevant opportunities and think innovatively about how our 3 core charitable aims (Bereavement Support, Awareness-raising and training health professionals, Research to reduce baby deaths), could be met by different funding opportunities. An ability to liaise effectively with other teams for gathering info and building an evidence base. Ability to work remotely with a new team, with regular contact from team members.
By volunteering with us you will be making an enormous difference to the experiences parents have when their baby dies, whether this be excellent bereavement care from a specialist midwife, a lifetime of support from our Bereavement Support Team or contributing to the wide range of research projects we fund to reduce the numbers of babies dying before, during or shortly after birth. Helping us to research funding opportunities in these challenging times will support our team who are working incredibly hard to enable us to continue our work.
We would love to welcome you to our team, who are open, friendly, incredibly supportive and dare I say it, fun! We are learning quickly and effectively how to work remotely and support each other to work as effectively as possible. If you are looking for a move into the voluntary sector after Covid, then this will provide a fantastic insight and experience for you and if not, you will have made a huge difference either way.
