Closing date 21st November

Charity People are working with an amazing specialist cancer charity to find their new Head of Philanthropy who will build on an existing donor base to really increase philanthropic giving to the charity. You will work with the full support of the Director of Fundraising and the board to develop and manage relationships with philanthropists to build and deliver on key income generation for the organisation. This is a key role and area of development for the charity and you will lead this area of income and create a first class stewardship programme. You will work to identify opportunities to secure sponsorships of special events and secure potential prospects to support the charity.

This is a phenomenal opportunity for a self motivated major giving professional who wants to work to build on a small, existing portfolio of supporters, but this is a chance to really create a more in depth major giving programme. Ideally based at home across London or South East (not restricted to this area), this is a chance for somebody with major donor experience who really wants to impact a role and organisation and be a superstar fundraiser for the charity. You will need to be someone self motivated and willing to travel across the UK when needed.

This charity has a fantastic Director of Fundraising, who will work with you to support and develop where needed, a Major Gifts Officer that you will have dotted line management to, and with the head office in one of the UK’s most beautiful cities!

Charity People is committed to promoting equal opportunities across the sector.
