We’re looking for a Development Manager

Jim Hollington

The Development Manager role is a new full-time and permanent post created to build our fundraising function from the foundations that have been laid in recent months.

You’ll deliver the fundraising strategy to raise income across individual giving, trusts, corporates and statutory funders, with support from the Chief Executive and other key members of the staff team and board.

Mentoring support will also be provided by our fundraising consultant in the first 12 months of the post, to support any skills development and training requirements, and to ensure a smooth operational transition from the consultancy project.

Access to external training and professional development opportunities will be provided wherever possible, including an individual membership to the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a fundraiser to build and grow development function within a well-established organisation and with a unique package of professional development support.

Salary £33,500 p.a.
