Hours: 22.5 hrs per week

Location: Northumberland

Deadline: Friday 27 September 2019 at 12 noon

The Hextol Foundation is a Charity based in Hexham, which provides working opportunities to people with learning disabilities and mental health needs. We do this by operating a suite of businesses, including: the Hextol Tans vegetarian café; a pack and post operation; catering; warehousing; gardening in Hexham and Newcastle; a handyperson service; and internal admin and cleaning functions.

We believe that by working in a supported and encouraging environment people develop new skills, grow in self-confidence and self-esteem, reduce social isolation and improve their mental and physical health. Where appropriate this may enable people to obtain paid employment.

We operate as a social enterprise in that we charge a commercial rate for the services we provide, but we need to raise additional funds through grant applications and other fundraising activities.

We are seeking an individual to be responsible for fundraising who has experience of successfully raising money from grant making bodies and events.

The role is part time, 22.5 hrs per week and the salary is up to £23400 FTE (to be pro-rated) depending on experience. Applications close on 11 September 2019. Interviews are anticipated to take place in week commencing 16 September 2019.
