Are you a passionate advocate for global development? Do you believe in the power of education to transform lives and lift communities out of poverty?

Link is a dynamic and ambitious international charity, headquartered in beautiful Edinburgh, which is helping more children than ever in impoverished, rural Africa to access quality education and the tools they need to get the very best start in life.

We are looking for a driven fundraising professional to join our team as our Development Manager. You will lead the fundraising strategy and creatively develop and deliver fundraising activity to achieve our income targets, securing core and programme funds crucial for our work to support the most vulnerable children.

The successful candidate will have experience in identifying and cultivating new prospects, managing complex fundraising projects and nurturing strong relationships with donors.
