Join the Transition Network team!
By Yaz Brien 30th July 2020
Do you have skills and experience in fundraising?
Are you interested in joining a creative, innovative and committed team working to support the international Transition movement, amplify stories of community-led change, and nurture collaborations across difference?
Can you contribute to our development as a non-hierarchical organisation exploring, and seeking to model, the changes we want to see in the world?
We are expanding our small team and are looking for someone with dynamism, flexibility and self-awareness to occupy shifting roles within our constantly-evolving structure.
TN Team Members have a generic role description and are also assigned roles according to the needs of the organisation and where it’s felt that their experience, knowledge and creativity will have the greatest impact. In this recruitment round we are seeking to appoint someone with significant experience of fundraising for environmental and social projects, including international projects and for network organisations.
Beginning in the Fundraising role, you will help to ensure that Transition Network has adequate financial resources to fund its staff and projects. You will coordinate and oversee fundraising either by directly writing funding applications, or by working closely with staff and contractors as they prepare applications. You will monitor and manage Transition Network’s relationships with funders, and respond to, seek out, and assess which funding opportunities to pursue.
Whilst our team is mainly UK-based at the moment, we support an international movement and are actively seeking opportunities to distribute power, influence, resources and opportunities for paid work as widely as possible. We are very happy to explore the practicalities and costs (carbon and financial) of employing individuals based in mainland Europe or beyond. We encourage you to apply for the role if you feel you meet the person specification.
We are also actively seeking to recruit individuals whose background or lived experiences will bring extra depth and/or a diversity of perspectives into the TN team. The range of diversity we hope for might include: people of black or minority ethnic heritage, from working class backgrounds, people living with disabilities, a range of ages or sexualities, and/or those who have experienced disadvantage in society or their lives.
