CPotential

Do you want to work for a small charity that thinks big?

CPotential is recruiting for a new team of corporate, trusts, grants and individual giving fundraisers. We spoke to them about the team culture and what makes it a 'wonderful workplace'.

Tell me about CPotential and the work you do

As our name says, we are all about seeing and nurturing potential.

We recently changed our name from the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy to reflect our ambition to support many more children and adults (for example, people with multiple sclerosis) who could benefit from our exciting holistic approach.

We currently work mainly with children aged 0-15 who have movement disorders due to conditions such as cerebral palsy or acquired brain injury.

We teach practical everyday ‘learning for living’ skills, conductive education and a range of therapies including music therapy to help each child gain confidence, skills and independence to achieve their potential now and in the future. We also offer support and information for parents, provide free assessments for the innovative Mollii Suit assistive device and the charity runs Woodstar School, its own school and nursery for 3-11 year olds.

We believe everyone has the potential to learn – and we’re here to make that happen.

What does the fundraising and marketing team do?

We are a small but dynamic team. Working closely together, we’re responsible for reaching our fundraising target of £¾ million this year through events, trusts, major donors and corporates to support CPotential’s range of services.

Can you tell me about the roles you're recruiting for? How have they come about?

The charity has entered a new and exciting era. We’re developing a new organisational strategy to increase the scope and impact of our services and a fundraising strategy to support this. We’re recruiting a new team of corporate, trusts, grants and individual giving fundraisers and want to ensure that we have the right people in place to deliver the best for the children, young people and families who use our services.

What sort of people are you looking for?

We’re looking for people with the right skills and experience for the roles. We want people who can apply their skills and experience with passion and drive. They’ll be looking for a challenge, able to hit the ground running, with personality and brilliant communication skills. A good sense of humour will come in handy too.

What exciting projects are you working on?

We have several great projects focusing on developing impact and services to reach more children and young people with disabilities. We are developing our ‘learning for living’ appeal to generate unrestricted income for our school and sessional services for children.

What are the biggest challenges the post holders will face?

We are a small charity with big goals so the challenge is to raise awareness of the amazing work we do.

How can CPotential enhance the career prospects of a fundraising professional?

All of the fundraising posts we’re advertising have scope to enable the post holders to make the roles their own, to carve their way, developing and implementing growth at an exciting time for the charity.

"We value everyone’s contribution and welcome ideas and innovation. We support our staff to develop personally and professionally and offer an excellent package of benefits. Plus, we have free onsite parking."

Why would someone want to work at CPotential?

Unusually for many charities, our ‘back office’ team work onsite with our frontline services so we meet the children and their parents every day and see how our work really makes a difference, which is what it is all about.
