SiMBA is here to support anyone affected by baby loss. We help bereaved families create precious memories with their baby and offer beautiful ways to honour and remember them.

It’s an exciting time of growth at SiMBA, and we are looking for a Head of Fundraising and Communications to grow this flourishing area of income. This hands-on role brings lots of opportunity to shape and develop the income stream.

If you are a team player who is able to engage with people at all levels, establishing relationships with all key stakeholders and has proven experience across the fundraising and communications functions, then we want to hear from you. You must be passionate about working with the fundraising and communications team to engage with every fundraiser and donor to ensure they receive a high quality and consistent supporter journey.

The Head of Fundraising and Communications will be responsible for the smooth running of the day-to-day fundraising and communications function, leading a small, newly established team to deliver on our fundraising target and strategy. This role is largely operational in its focus but will require you to support the CEO and our Board at a strategic level. You will work very closely with your team to deliver on operational activities, whilst still able to focus upon setting and monitoring progress against the fundraising and communications strategies and establishing effective processes and systems.

This role would therefore be ideally suited to an experienced Fundraising Manager looking to take on more responsibility in the management of a small team or applying skills learnt as a departmental lead in a larger charity to a “Head of” function role in a smaller organisation.
