We are looking for a Fundraising Assistant and an Individual Giving Fundraiser. This page is for the Fundraising Assistant. Click here for details of the Individual Giving Fundraiser.

About Amaze

Amaze is a highly regarded Sussex based charity that supports families with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We provide a wide range of services and projects, funded from a range of statutory grants and contracts, trusts and foundations, small corporates, running events and a smaller proportion from individuals and community giving. Much of our funding is short-term and we need to keep innovating to come up with new ways of raising funds and researching/finding new funding partners. More children and young people with SEND and their families are turning to us for help than ever before, and you will be at the heart of our team making sure we can continue to grow to meet their needs and diversify our income so we become more sustainable.

Amaze is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe having a diverse workforce at all levels allows us to represent the communities we serve. We would particularly welcome disabled applicants and applicants from Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic communities. Amaze offers incredibly flexible working arrangements and will support you to work across our offices (in Brighton or Eastbourne) and home if you choose.

The deadline for applications is 12pm on Friday 8th July.

Please save Monday 19th and Tuesday 19th July for interviews.
