Job title: Charity Advisor
Contract: up to 12 months FTC
Reference: MB197
Based in: London
Department: Charity Advisory and Programmes
Hours: 35 hours per week
Grade: D
Salary: Up to £32,000 per annum

The Charity Advisory Team at CAF has grown over the last two years and we are now seeking a dynamic, enthusiastic Charity Advisor to join our team. You will provide long-term consultancy to charities, and charitable organisations bringing your own knowledge and experience of income generation, fundraising, and business planning to support our clients to become more resilient and have a real lasting impact.

The position is within a fast paced team at CAF that works closely together, and will report into the Lead Advisory Manager. You will be based in our London office but will travel across the UK to work on site with our charity clients. Working closely with all colleagues across CAF to make best use of our knowledge to support your charities and partnerships is also a key part of the role.

You will have experience in working within or with charitable organisations in a strategic or advisory role, with a good understanding of income generation strategies. This role is a real opportunity to build on your knowledge and gain exposure to a range of causes, models and issues.  It could be an ideal role for someone who already has some experience and is keen to develop a career in consultancy, advisory or other strategic sector support roles.   

A typical day might involve researching the potential for charity corporate partnerships in one part of the country, working with a local partnership to explore sustainability, or helping a trustee board to consider alternative income models. We are looking for someone who is able to devise strategy as well as advise on implementing it. You should be keen to learn and good at making connections between what we know at CAF and what charities need.

If you enjoy working with a wide range of people and organisations, have excellent facilitation and analytical skills and good knowledge of the challenges facing the charity and social sectors then we would love to hear from you.
