Employment Opportunity at RainbowYOUTH

RainbowYOUTH is excited to announce a new employment opportunity with the expansion of the existing role of Fundraising Coordinator into the full time role of National Fundraising Manager.
The position has opened up after current Fundraising Coordinator Paul Stevens announced he was moving on to concentrate on becoming a full-time teacher - something he has been studying towards.
General Manager of RainbowYOUTH, Duncan Matthews says, "Paul has been a key driver behind allowing RainbowYOUTH to grow and keep doing the work we do over the last 18 months. I am very sorry to see him go, and he will be missed around the centre!  We wish Paul all the best for his future, as he follows his dream of becoming a teacher.”
Paul says it is "bittersweet to be leaving the RY staff after being there for such a period of growth and transition, working with such an amazing group of people. I have deeply valued being part of such a vibrant and passionate community of people - staff, board, interns, and RY members included. With so many lifelong friendships created, and a commitment to stay involved with this incredible organisation, I see this as more of a new beginning than an ending, and I have every faith that Duncan and the team will continue taking RY to new and ever greater heights."
The role of National Fundraising Manager will expand on Paul’s success in gaining financial support for RainbowYOUTH by focusing on collaborative opportunities with other community organisations and building a team of volunteers. As well this, the new position concentrates on looking at national level funding to work towards RainbowYOUTH’s strategic goal of developing and expanding their services to a national level.
Matthews explains that this position “presents an exciting opportunity for someone to come on board with RainbowYOUTH, with an expanded scope, to help us to continue to grow and support queer and trans* young people around the country".
