Current vacancies

Fundraising Officer

  • Full time
  • £30,240 – £33,630
  • Hybrid: Glasgow
  • Closing 26th July 2024

SCIAF is the official overseas aid and development agency of the Catholic Church in Scotland. Working with people of all faiths and none, our mission is to enable the poorest to lift themselves out of poverty and work together to protect our common home, help people recover from disaster, and inspire people in Scotland to put their faith into action. We are passionate about the work we do and need equally committed members on our teams.

The Role

The Fundraising Officer will play a key role in developing and maintaining relationships with the supporters who enable SCIAF to create a just and green world. In this pivotal role, you will research, write and own compelling fundraising propositions that capture the hearts and actions of our amazing supporter base.

You will be a crucial member of the team that creates a calendar of activities and campaigns that enable SCIAF to change the poorest of the poor.

This role is based in our Glasgow office; although a degree of flexibility can be offered in terms of where and when this role is undertaken.

Who we're looking for

We’re looking for someone with the skills, experience and passion for fundraising who can help us to increase revenue and to enhance our relationship with our supporters. You will have a flair for crafting funding propositions that inspire action and a deep commitment to tackling global poverty and injustice.

Your excellent organisation and planning skills allow you to work with a high level of accuracy to meet tight deadlines. You’ll be ambitious, analytical and be inspired by SCIAF’s mission and values.

We’re looking for a high-performing individual with initiative and enthusiasm who can use creativity and strong problem-solving skills to help us reach our goals.

You will also have a good working knowledge of a variety of IT systems (particularly MS Office products), good written English, an ability to exercise initiative; and be proactive and resilient.

As an inclusive employer, we want our staff team to reflect the communities in which we live and work. We therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community.


SCIAF works in partnership with local and church organisations, supporting communities across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, to bring about lasting change.

SCIAF undertakes to ensure that all staff, volunteers and relevant others, whose work might involve contact with children and/or vulnerable adults, will have completed additional recruitment procedures and have PVG Scheme membership. We would also confirm that all staff are expected to adhere to SCIAF’s Safeguarding Policy and a Code of Conduct which specifies the attitudes and behaviour that all staff are expected to maintain.
