About us, the role and you

From our charity headquarters, you’ll hear the rush of the helicopter engines as they fire up in preparation for the next mission – one of around 1,500 the Great North Air Ambulance Service launches every year.

Your role will be integral in making sure the next time the emergency bell rings, the team can respond yet again.

You’ll be helping to shape a programme of activities that attract supporters old and new. You will lead the Community Fundraising Team within your geographical area to maximise the potential of engagement opportunities, build local awareness, increase income and our supporter base. In addition, you will support, motivate, and deliver training to the team to help ensure that our Community Fundraisers meet their full potential.

The perfect candidate will have at least two years experience of working in fundraising, alongside demonstrable sales and leadership skills and experience. Excellent interpersonal, customer service and organisation skills are a must. As the role involves business travel across your designated region, a current clean driving licence is essential.

This role is perfect for someone who wants their skills to make a real difference.

Why work for us?

Our employee rewards and benefits include:

  • A generous annual leave entitlement, starting at 23 days holiday in addition to bank holidays, increasing to 27 days with service
  • Flexible working schemes
  • Private healthcare schemes (upon completion of a 6-month probation period)
  • Access to a 24/7 counselling and advice service
  • Supportive training and development programmes
  • Organised staff social events
  • Free onsite parking (if based at HQ)
  • A modern working environment

By joining the GNAAS family you will be part of a fantastic team all working together. All our roles require innovative thought processes and a willingness to learn new skills. If you are looking to be part of a vibrant and positive environment and are excited by the opportunity to support the charity’s fundraising function, then please get in touch.
