Fundraising Assistant

Multi award-winning Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, is expanding and looking to recruit a Fundraising Assistant to join our busy fundraising team based in central Bristol.

Now celebrating its 21st anniversary, The Grand Appeal is one of Bristol’s most well-known charities, responsible for both the Gromit Unleashed and Shaun in the City art trails, the flagship Wallace & Gromit Charity Shop at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway and the Cots for Tots House family accommodation. The charity has raised over £40 million, supporting sick children in hospital.

The new Fundraising Assistant will be the first line of communication with donors; responsible for interacting with our supporters to provide the excellent level of donor care that has become synonymous with The Grand Appeal.  This includes thanking and engaging with donors to ensure their fundraising is successful, and providing an excellent administrative service to the fundraising teams.

Previous experience in the charity sector is welcomed but not essential, as we’re looking for an enthusiastic and energetic self-starter who may be looking for a first step into a career in the charity sector.  Our ideal candidate will have a warm and engaging personality, great organisational skills and be able to demonstrate the ability to build relationships with potential donors and supporters.  

The Grand Appeal’s HQ is in central Bristol opposite Bristol Children’s Hospital where the Fundraising Assistant will be based.

This post is subject to DBS disclosure. The Grand Appeal is committed to safeguarding children and young people.  All staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment.
