This is an exciting time to join the growing team at Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity. We are recruiting for a passionate Trusts Officer to generate and grow income from trusts and foundations to support the charity's work.
The case around the need to support people of all ages with dyslexia is compelling. About 1 in 10 people have a degree of dyslexia, and this can affect people’s lives in a fundamental way. If not addressed correctly, it can leave people feeling like failures, and choosing negative paths in life. Whereas if the right help is provided, people can learn to use their dyslexia extremely positively, and as a strong advantage in life. The key is to get the right help, advice and support. And always to remember that everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Don’t we all?
We are committed to further increasing our reach and impact over the next 5 years, with the aim of more than doubling the number of beneficiaries we support, and particularly to assist significantly more people who are from lower-income backgrounds. In order to achieve this, we have created the important role of Trust Officer.
This is a great opportunity for someone who connects with our values and wants to make a significant impact by raising funds to support the great work we do.
We do hope you feel inspired to be part of our journey and look forward to receiving your application.
Please see the attached application pack for full details about the role and how to apply.
