This news post is about 1 year old

The move is part of an “organisational redesign”. 

The Chartered Institute of Fundraising (CIOF) is consulting with staff on a proposed new structure which would see as many as ten jobs cut

The CIOF said the move would “streamline” its working model and bring in a more “agile, efficient and member-centric” approach.

A full review has been carried out of the organisation’s products and services to inform the consultation, and external expertise, HR and organisational design, have aided the development of the proposed new structure.

The organisation has said that they expect the number of roles removed from the organisation to be “fewer than ten”. 

In a blog published on the CIOF website and shared with members, Katie Docherty, CEO, said: “While the shape and size of our team may change, our key services and activities that members engage with and value will continue. 

“We have a strong and committed membership who express support and positivity on our new three year strategy and we are delighted that flagship events like Fundraising Convention are flourishing – with in-person tickets almost sold out.

“Whatever the outcome of this consultation is, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to all of the team at the Chartered Institute. They are committed, talented, and hard-working professionals who should be proud of their achievements. 

“They care deeply about supporting fundraising, and many have had long-standing friendships and working relationships with our members all across the UK.

“Our work as an organisation and our mission as a charity has never been more important. I am confident that with a redesigned organisation we will be the best place to support our members, champion fundraising, and take forward the profession so that you can make the biggest difference to the causes that mean so much to us all.”
