We currently have the following opportunities to join the PiP team;
Community and Events Fundraising Officer
We’re looking for a smart, experienced fundraising officer to lead on our community and events fundraising. From working with schools to developing our new challenge event you’ll work closely with the Head of Fundraising to reach PiP’s fundraising potential. PiP is growing and the fundraising team will be doubling in size over the coming year, it’s a great time to join our wonderful charity and feel the impact you are making daily!
Sessional Worker (Maternity Cover)
We are looking an enthusiastic and energetic individual to join our service delivery team. The role of sessional worker is to provide support to our Development Workers with the flexible delivery of a programme of creative education and development opportunities for adults with learning disabilities. Responsibilities also include key worker support to specific individuals, as well as organising and participating in the organisation fundraising activities and events. Initially we are recruiting for a maternity cover but there is a potential that this role may become permanent as we are growing.

We are also looking for new members to join PiP’s Board of Trustees. Are you interested in becoming a Trustee of our vibrant local charity?
The Trustee Opportunity
PIP’s recent success has been underpinned by strong leadership, with the development of a skilled management team over the last few years, and by sound governance and oversight from the Board of Trustees.
Our Board comprises 6 committed Trustees including the Chair. They have a mix of backgrounds, across the voluntary and private sector. A number of vacancies will arise over the next two years as some of the Trustees finish their term of office. We are therefore looking to recruit two new Trustees to join the Board during 2018.
A passion for the sector and for improving the lives of young adults with learning difficulties is the overriding qualification. Experience of operating at Board level or as a Trustee is obviously helpful as is any specific expertise or experience in relevant fields – finance, the learning disability sector, fundraising, marketing and communications. We expect all our Trustees to be actively involved in our fundraising efforts and to use their networks, contacts and enthusiasm to generate support for PIP.
If you want to contribute to a vibrant local charity, have relevant skills and experience, together with strategic vision and a creative approach, and can commit up to 10 days a year, we would like to hear from you.
