Join our supportive and impactful team at Bethany Christian Trust as an Events and Engagement Fundraiser, where you can make a real difference in ending homelessness in Scotland through creative event coordination and heartfelt support!


Each year, Bethany Christian Trust helps over 7,000 people throughout Scotland avoid or move out of homelessness. We achieve this by providing emergency and supported accommodation and services that help people build resilience to the challenges that often lead to homelessness.

To help carry out this work, our Fundraising Team raises significant income while stewarding new and existing supporters. Our Fundraising Team describes their work culture as supportive, loving, friendly, fun, hardworking, and collaborative. They say, “It’s like spending every day with your friends.” If you are brilliant at organising events and have a heart to help people, then we would love to hear from you!

As an experienced, proactive, and creative events fundraiser, you will assist your Team Lead in coordinating a programme of national events that align with the strategic aims of raising funds, building brand awareness, and increasing fundraising capacity through ambassadors and participants.

You will be part of a multidisciplinary team and will support other areas of fundraising, including churches and community fundraising, corporates, individual giving, and marketing. Living our values, you will work with colleagues across the charity to encourage event participation so that, together, we can help end homelessness in Scotland one person at a time.

We are committed to helping our employees flourish personally and professionally. Below are a few examples of the ways we support our employees.

  • Bethany provides 30 days of annual leave initially to all contracted staff, rising to a maximum of 40 days depending on length of service.
  • Bethany provides enhanced payments for maternity, paternity, and adoption.
  • Bethany operates a company pension scheme to which all staff are auto-enrolled, with option to opt out. We will match any staff member’s pension contribution up to a maximum of 5%.
  • Bethany provides a death in service benefit scheme.
  • (Depending on the role) Optional clinical supervision will be offered in line with best practice and fully funded by Bethany.

As Bethany is a Christian organisation applicants interested should be in sympathy with and accept the mission, vision and values of the organisation.
