Upmo are an Edinburgh-based charity that provides support and opportunity for adults with learning disabilities and autism across Edinburgh, East Lothian and Midlothian. Upmo was founded in 2006 by Josh Barton and inspired by the belief that services for adults could truly be exciting, dynamic and meaningful.
In 2006, adults with learning disabilities lacked opportunities in higher education and there was a lack of understanding around individual needs. Those who understood the needs of service users operated with limited scope to encourage, inspire and motivate. As a result, many service users were isolated and desperately in need of opportunities to become more socially engaged, active and valued.
The response from Upmo was combining progressive learning within an educational curriculum and the development of support service provision – placing the needs of students at the heart of services. Distinguishing themselves by adopting an unconventional approach, Upmo provides custom-tailored support services alongside a well-regarded curriculum featuring creative workshops, educational activities, and vocational programs. The charity has also expanded its impact through a growing number of social enterprises aimed at creating job opportunities and preparing students for employment.
Upmo is actively seeking an accomplished Senior Fundraiser equipped with a diverse skill set, who are able to craft strategic approaches for accessing new funding streams and fostering income generation. The ideal candidate should possess experience in securing support from Trusts, Foundations, and private sector sponsors that align with the organisation's strategic plans.
Responsibilities include planning, coordinating, and submitting funding applications, as well as developing and maintaining relationships with stakeholders. The position requires the successful delivery of funding campaigns, objectives, and targets within set deadlines. This entails monitoring funded projects, completing progress reports, and conducting necessary research for new opportunities.
If you possess experience in these fundraising areas with a proven track record of success, along with effective organisational and communication skills, and if you are driven to surpass targets, we encourage you to connect with us for more details.
