Fundraising Officer

Could you help Extratime make a difference to the lives of children and young people?

Extratime is an award-winning children’s charity working across Brighton & Hove and West Sussex. At Extratime clubs and holiday schemes, children and young people with disabilities, complex medical needs and conditions such as autism, have the specialist support they need to have fun, try new things and make new friends. Families consistently tell us that that Extratime is their life-line. The specialist care we provide broadens horizons for children and young people. For their families, Extratime’s after school clubs and holiday schemes also provides an important break from the pressures of caring for a child with a disability.

About the role

This new post presents a fantastic opportunity for a skilled and experienced Fundraiser to join our friendly team to support Extratime’s vital work. The successful applicant will quickly develop an understanding of Extratime, our work and our values.

This new post also provides an opportunity for the right person to develop and grow the role to achieve long term funding success as Extratime continues to grow and change to meet the needs of our young service users and their families.
