The charity steps in where statutory healthcare, support and funding ends, to ensure that children have the support they need to reach their potential and thrive, regardless of their health, mobility, abilities and economic background.
We may be celebrating our 70th anniversary this year but we still have ambitions for growth and hope you choose to help us get there. We have already commenced our journey by creating new and re-imagined roles and have recently secured David Walliams as Patron to our 70th birthday celebrations this year.
The Head of Fundraising we are looking for will be an experienced, committed and versatile professional with a passion for all that is corporate fundraising including new partnership development and account management. We have existing relationship but many new partnerships to identify and grow. The ideal candidate will be both a strategist and hands on manager, enjoy leading from the front and working with colleagues in an integrated way, i.e. working closely with the Head of Marketing and Communications, the CEO, and key stakeholders. Ideally you will lead on corporate fundraising opportunities but also bring experience in another income stream ideally community, events, or individual giving more widely.
So, if you like the idea of developing the corporate partnerships strategy which proactively builds a new business pipeline as well as maximising on existing corporate support, managing a growing team, and working in more than one income stream then we would like to hear from you.
