Prospectus are excited to be working exclusively with Mermaids UK to help them recruit a Head of Fundraising in a newly created position. Mermaids has been supporting trans children, young people, and their families since 1995. Mermaids has evolved into one of the UK's leading LGBTQ+ charities, empowering thousands of people with its secure online communities, local community groups, helpline services, web resources, events, training, legal support, policy and stakeholder engagement and residential weekends.

This role will report into the Director of Communications, Fundraising & Digital and is offered on a permanent full-time basis paying up to £45,000 per annum. They are working fully remote at the moment but there are offices in Leeds and London and they are ideally looking for someone who can come in two days a week, although this is not compulsory.

The young people, children and families that they support are at the heart of Mermaids' work. They have significantly expanded and now need a highly effective and experienced fundraising professional to join them, leading a team to strengthen and grow their income, both restricted and unrestricted. They currently have developed income streams across Corporate Partnerships, Individual and Digital Giving, Community Fundraising, Trusts and Foundations, and the National Lottery.

They are looking for a generalist fundraiser with a demonstrable track record of success achieving seven figure overall targets made up across multiple income streams. They are encouraging applications from those with lived experiences (directly or indirectly) and/or close ties to the LGBTQ+ community.
