About us

Changing Lives is a national charity that supports over 17,000 people each year. We are a well-respected, growing organisation dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable people across the UK.

We began as a soup run supporting people who were homeless in the North East over 45 years ago, and are proud to still have our main base and central office in the North East. Since 1970, our services have grown and developed to support people experiencing a wide range of personal challenges, including addiction and recovery programmes, employment guidance, help for people in prison or on probation, and support for people experiencing sexual exploitation or domestic abuse.

We’re looking for committed and compassionate professionals who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.

About the job

We are a well-respected, growing organisation with income generated through contracts, grants and trusts, and rents. Fundraising, however, is still underdeveloped and this is an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of fundraising within Changing Lives.

Working with the Fundraising team, the Fundraising Officer will help to develop unrestricted income for the charity. The post holder will be expected to proactively recruit new donors, provide excellent donor care to support and retain existing donors, and will use their fundraising skills to deliver both financial and non-financial KPIs.
