Yemen conflict: How my country has changed - BBC News

Fundraising Coordinator – An exciting and challenging opportunity has arisen with The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace, an internationally renowned conflict resolution and peace building charity based in the North West of England.

The Foundation was established in 1995 in memory of Tim and Johnathan who were killed by the IRA in the bombing of Warrington in 1993. Colin and Wendy, Tim’s parents, made a commitment to keep the boys names alive, and help future victims of violent extremism and acts of terror, which led to them creating a lasting memorial, known as the Peace Centre. The £3.3 million purpose built Centre was opened on the 7th anniversary of the bombing, on March 20th, 2000.

The Foundation is a charity that works nationally and internationally FOR PEACE and non-violent conflict resolution.  It does this from its major asset, the Peace Centre, and throughout the country and Europe, delivering a series of projects and services commissioned in the prevention, resolution and response to terrorism and political violence.

The Foundation is looking to employ a Fundraising Coordinator to work with the Events Manager to deliver a fundraising strategy in support of the organisation.   It will be an exciting opportunity to join the Foundations growing team, expand the Charities fundraising activities and generate new income streams.

In 2018, the Foundation and the people of Warrington will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Warrington bombing. This will be a time when not only will we remember Tim and Johnathan, but a time when we will celebrate all that has been achieved in their names.  During this time, the Fundraising Coordinator will work with the Founders and Trustees to create and market a campaign for the anniversary year.

The successful candidate must be professional, creative and self-motivated. Capable of speaking with key decision makers in corporate organisation and community groups and able to generate charitable donations from a variety of sources, including community groups, corporate organisations and individuals.
