Project Manager needed

The Friends of HighGround (FHG) is looking for a new Steering Group member.

FHG is the voluntary arm of HighGround which supports and promotes the work of the Charity through Fundraising and community awareness initiatives both locally and nationally.

The Vision is to create a community of Friends who will promote and facilitate the work of HighGround.

FHG’s Trustee who sits on HighGround’s Board is Sue Harper and a small group of individuals with a shared desire to support HighGround have formed a Steering Group to take this forwards, both locally and nationally.

As demand for our services increases, the need to raise more money to ensure we can sustain and develop these services is a constant challenge.

For the next financial year, FHG has undertaken to raise 10% of HighGround’s annual budget via our programme of events and increased public awareness of our work with those who have served their Country.

We are looking for someone with Project Management skills to join our Steering Group which meets in London every 8 weeks.

This individual should have a high level of attention to detail (bordering on obsessive is fine) and be well organised. A well-developed sense of humour is essential.

Please contact Anna BC in the first instance.
