We are looking for an experienced Fundraising and Development Manager to join RICE at an important and exciting time of growth for the organization. This role will be key to achieving our strategic growth through 2019/20 and beyond. You will lead our fundraising and communications activity and will develop new opportunities and income streams whilst ensuring existing donor income is maintained and improved.  As a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT) you will work closely with colleagues across the organization to deliver strategy and will participate in Board of Trustee meetings and appropriate Committees.

You have both a strategic and operational ‘hands on’ approach to income generation and communications work, and a track record of setting and achieving financial targets.  You have proven experience of successful and significant income growth across multiple income streams, amongst them trusts, foundations, major donors, corporate engagement and legacies,   and communications activity to support and promote our work.  You will lead and motivate your small team by example, and will enjoy working for a small charity/not-for-profit company. Your interest in health and research charities and/or previous experience of working with people with dementia or in the older age group will be an advantage.

RICE is an independent charity and an internationally renowned centre for dementia research, diagnosis and treatment. Our research aims to improve life for people with dementia and their families and carers, and to find drug and non-drug treatments for people with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other diseases predominantly affecting older people. Our contracted NHS Memory Clinic service and allied activities also provide support to patients, families and carers. We are currently in an ambitious phase of development to significantly increase our clinical and academic research programme. We work closely with the Universities of Bath, Bristol and other research institutions, both nationally and internationally, and with the Royal United Hospital.
