About the Chartered Institute of Fundraising

The Chartered Institute of Fundraising is the professional membership body for UK fundraising. It supports fundraisers through leadership and representation; best practice and compliance; education and networking; and it champions and promotes fundraising as a career choice. Our members raise more than £10 billion in income for good causes every year. 

The Chartered Institute has developed an active and change-focused position on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, creating a new conversation and expectations around diversifying the fundraising profession. 

We believe that fundraisers should represent the communities they work in and the donors they work with. Our ground-breaking Change Collective campaign brings together professionals from across the sector, working together to redefine its identity.

The Role

Reporting to the Chief Executive, our new Director of People and Resources will ensure the Chartered Institute has the right people, systems and resources in place to deliver its strategy. 

Key to this will be leading the overall business planning and risk management process, managing our budgets and facilities, and monitoring and reporting on our performance. 

You will also be responsible for ensuring our approach to developing our staff and volunteers is class-leading, and for developing a truly learning, collaborative and inclusive culture within the organisation.

About You

To be considered as the Director of People and Resources, you will need: 

- To be an experienced, people-focused senior manager with significant financial expertise
- A record of consistent achievement in strategic business planning and resource management
- A personal sympathy with the Institute’s membership profile
- An understanding of the role that fundraising plays in charitable impact across the country
- An awareness of the important relationship between rigorous planning, ongoing monitoring and timely reporting

Experience of people and organisational development will be a major advantage, and a good grasp of the nature of working within a membership organisation will set strong candidates apart.

Other organisations may call this role Director of People, Director of Organisational Development and People, Director of Organisational Development, Head of HR, Head of Organisational Development, Director of HR and Resources, or Director of OD and HR.
