We’re looking for an enthusiastic, all-round fundraiser who can support our fundraising goals and work with our fab part-time Fundraiser as part of a job-share at Scouts Scotland HQ in Dunfermline.
Internal Relationships: This role will work in a job share alongside another Fundraiser. Scouts Scotland colleagues and Senior Volunteers

We operate three Scout Adventures Centres that deliver outdoor learning, adventurous experiences and residential programmes to both our own members and a range of partners, including schools and other youth charities.
Our Centres deliver a wide range of opportunities – everything from fully programmed and catered residential weeks to traditional camping and bush craft experiences.
As Scout Adventures Centres, we deliver a progressive range of experiences across our three sites – from a first night away in a bunk bedded dorm to a gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition on Loch Lomond. In fact, we are one of Scotland’s largest providers of Duke of Edinburgh’s expeditions.
We want to grow and so we’re looking for a Business Development Manager who can help us. We believe that we can achieve growth with new and repeat Scouting and Uniformed customers, the education market, the wider third sector, corporates and school holiday clubs.
This role will have two main functions: to proactively sell our centres to new and existing customers, achieving sales targets; and to review our products and services to make sure they’re priced right and attractive to our customers and markets.
We’re a charity and membership organisation. You’ll be passionate about the work we do helping young people to become the best they can be. You’ll enjoy forming relationships and working with our amazing volunteers and always be on the lookout for where we can make the biggest difference.
