About the Charity

The Children’s Air Ambulance which provides paediatric transfers across the UK. Our objective is to save lives, utilising specialist pilots, doctors, and paramedics and

with our work centred on saving lives, improving clinical outcomes and being able to react quickly and efficiently to emergencies. We are at the forefront of innovative clinical care and we challenge boundaries. None of this can be achieved without a hugely dedicated team of colleagues, volunteers and the general public.

The Opportunity:

We are looking to continue to grow our Fundraising presence in Oxford and the surrounding areas including some occasional trips to London. This means that the role initially will be approaching new opportunities for us within the local community to grow our brand. This could be with local groups such as rotary clubs and commercial organisations that potentially want to support us. You will have the ability to grow a future pipeline that supports us in the years to come. With that in mind the role has a key business development focus in the region often from a ‘cold’ point of engagement. As we move into a new world of fundraising you will be comfortable utilising new innovative techniques and also creating them to drive income for the Charity. We will support you every step of the way with the tools you need.

The person:

Whilst with most roles we can offer some flexibility we do need someone who is an experienced Fundraiser. This role is out of our traditional patches so you will be able to self-manage and-self motivate yourself, we will support but the drive to achieve is essential. You will thrive on winning new opportunities and continually look at ways to innovate how we operate – We love tenacious big thinkers with big ideas.

What we can give you is the opportunity to be independent in your role, we encourage our people to use their creativity to achieve success, we just give you the support every step of the way.

We are on a journey to be the organisation of choice and opportunity for the most talented and driven people from diverse backgrounds.
