Full Description


Community Creations is the not-for-profit company behind SpunOut.ie, Ireland’s award-winning youth information website, and 50808, a new free 24/7 text service, providing everything from a calming chat to immediate support.

SpunOut.ie is Ireland’s youth information website, by young people for young people. SpunOut.ie’s vision is to help create an Ireland where young people aged between 16 and 25 are empowered with the information they need to live active, happy, and healthy lives. SpunOut.ie supported over 1.6 million young people with information resources in 2019.

50808 is a first of its kind for Ireland: a free 24/7 text service, providing everything from a calming chat to immediate support for people going through a mental health or emotional crisis - big or small. From breakups or bullying, to anxiety, depression and suicidal feelings, our Crisis Volunteers are available 24/7 for anonymous text conversations. Our aim is to provide immediate support in the short term and connect people to resources that will help them into the future.


Community Creations is now seeking to appoint a dynamic Head of Fundraising to join our team and maximise our impact for young people by expanding our fundraising and communication activities and generating income from a diverse range of sources. We are seeking applications from individuals with at least 5 years’ experience in a fundraising or business development role and a genuine interest in the not-for-profit sector demonstrated through either professional or voluntary involvement. Experience working across the fundraising mix with corporates, major donors, trusts and foundations, and community fundraisers would be a distinct advantage.

This will be a busy and varied role and to succeed, you will need excellent communication skills, expert networking and negotiation abilities, and a passion for improving the lives of young people in Ireland. You will have strong analytical and reporting skills and you will be comfortable working to targets and managing budgets.

If you’re an experienced, enthusiastic fundraiser or business development professional with experience developing new and innovative ways of attracting and engaging with supporters, and exceptional relationship building and influencing skills, we’d love to hear from you!
