Fundraising Ireland, the association for professional fundraisers in Ireland, is to recruit its first Chief Executive Officer.
Established in 2007, the organisation has until now been managed by a voluntary Board. For the last two years the Board has been supported by a Business Development Manager, Ed Hurrell, and for the last nine months there has been additional, part-time back-office support.
The opportunity to recruit a CEO has arisen following recent confirmation of a new three-year funding stream. Fundraising Ireland has therefore started recruiting someone to drive forward its fundraising education programme, grow and diversify its income streams, and expand its membership offerings. The successful candidate should, according to the association's recruitment advert, be able to "act as the voice for charitable fundraising in Ireland".
