Job description...

AWS Executive are working exclusively with LGBT Health and Wellbeing to appoint their Head of Income Generation and Engagement.

LGBT Health and Wellbeing was established in 2003 to support the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people in Scotland. We’re a nationally respected charity that provides support services and social spaces that improve health and wellbeing, reduce social isolation, and increase community connection.

Although we are known as ‘LGBT’ Health and Wellbeing, we provide support and services to the entire diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community across Scotland including queer, intersex, asexual people and all identities under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella. We also support families and friends of LGBTQ+ people, and health and social care professionals working with LGBTQ+ people, as well as those questioning or wanting to discuss their sexuality or gender identity.

As well as providing support programmes for LGBTQ+ people, the organisation directly contributes the expertise of our community members to a wide range of individuals and organisation, including the Scottish Government in an effort to influence the development of law, policies, and strategies.

LGBT Health and Wellbeing’s current high-level objectives are to:

  • Make a real difference to our community.
  • Generate funds from a diverse income stream, and increase awareness of our organisation.
  • Attract and retain the best possible team of staff and volunteers who are suitable placed to serve our community.
    Develop and implement effective and efficient organisational processes and systems.
  • We are increasingly recognised as a ‘go to’ organisation in relation to LGBT+ issues. Recently these have included Gender Recognition, Trans Healthcare, Conversion Practices, Mental Health, Suicide and Self Harm, and the National Care Service.

The main purpose of this role is to maximise income and other opportunities afforded to us through the support of charities, organisations, and individuals. This will include writing compelling and motivational funding applications to Charitable Trusts and Foundations, and developing and nurturing relationships with High Value Donors and private businesses.

You will work with your colleagues across the organisation in order to understand our communities’ needs before sourcing and pursuing appropriate funding opportunities that will enable us to meet this need. As a member of the Senior Management Team, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of our overarching organisational strategy, along with leading on the income generation and engagement strategies.

You should have a good knowledge of the funding landscape in Scotland as well as an understanding of the social, political, and human rights issues that impact on the lives of LGBT+ people in Scotland. You will be able to evidence a track record in generating six-figure income streams (annually) in charitable fundraising.

We recommend a discussion with our external consultant – Alan Surgeon at AWS Executive, [email protected].
