Why Join Magic Me Now?

Embark on a thrilling journey with us during this transformative period! Our 3 Year Strategic Plan, developed in response to our community’s evolving needs post-COVID, builds upon three decades of intergenerational expertise. Throughout the pandemic, Magic Me remained a beacon of connection, delivering innovative activities to combat social isolation and foster community bonds. In April 2023, Magic Me joined Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations, marking a significant milestone in our journey. With newfound support, we’re gearing up to expand our reach and strengthen our impact. As we step into a new chapter, we’re recruiting for the role of Fundraising & Development Manager to support our growth.

  • Impactful role: Lead the delivery of our new Fundraising Strategy, developing and adjusting our approach, ensuring Magic Me thrives financially.
  • Diverse collaboration: Work closely with our team, partners, and stakeholders to secure a sustainable balance of funding sources.

We believe diversity enhances the relevance and quality of our work and we use a blind recruitment process – our panel does not see any personal details during the shortlisting process.
