Closing date: Monday 3rd May, 2021

This is a great opportunity for an experienced feminist Fundraising and Communications Manager to set RISE on a new path to independence. We are looking for a new person to join us to grow income from trusts and foundations, to enable us to diversify our fundraising approach, including major donors, legacy giving and securing corporate support and sponsorship. Managing a small team of staff and volunteers, you will also take the lead on communications, marketing, press and media working closely with the CEO.

RISE is a relatively small but highly respected women-centred domestic abuse charity deeply embedded in the Brighton and Hove community with 26 years’ experience. Our vision is ‘Freedom from Abuse and Violence’ and our three main strategic aims are: Excellence, Community Focus, Voice and Leadership (read more here).

The role has clear fundraising priorities, but we are looking for someone willing to lend-a-hand to support our high profile events and able to work well as part of a relatively small staff team. We are hoping to find someone who is a confident feminist leader and an influencer who is as committed and passionate as we are to ending male violence and abuse.

RISE is a relatively small organisation with around 26 staff. We are a busy and (for our size) complex charity, with a friendly team, a positive ethos, and a commitment to ensuring that RISE is a strong and efficient organisation and a great place to work.

The successful candidate will be creative, organised and resourceful, possess excellent cross-discipline communication and income generation skills and have solid experience in running successful awareness-raising campaigns, maximising digital channels and securing press coverage to increase RISE’s reach. The role will oversee both internal and external communications and marketing and report to the Income Generation Sub-Group of the RISE Board.
