Small to medium sized charities here in the North East are finding it hard to recruit fundraisers in to their organisations.
Institute of Fundraising North East, VONNE, KEDA Consulting and Charity People are bringing a free two hour event to Newcastle to address the main issues faced by charities in this recruitment process, from writing the right job description and setting a competitive salary, to addressing what skills are a prerequisite to what can be learnt on the job, and what support and training can then be offered once a fundraiser is in post.
Join us on Tuesday 12th November 2019 from 3-5pm at MEA House to have conversations with expert organisations in the sector and to meet with peers from senior management at other small to medium charities in the region.
We’ll start with discussing key issues and sharing experiences, followed by presentations and conversations on key areas including how to write a job description, how to advertise a role, shortlist and interview, what salary should be offered, what flexibility the role should offer, what the charity should do once person is in post, and what training, mentoring, coaching is available to the board/senior management and to the fundraiser themselves.
Along with expert advice shared on the day, attendees will leave with a hand out with top tips, resources and training and mentoring available.
Places are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
