This is a pivotal role in the organisation heading up our relationships team, which includes fundraising and marketing communications and holds some of our most important strategic relationships. With substantial oversight of the organisation and liaison with service teams, Senior Managers and Leadership we are looking for a strategic thinker who can scan the horizon and see the big picture whilst ensuring that the talented team has everything it needs to deliver the fundraising and communications plans.

This role requires someone who can build trusted relationships across the organisation and has significant experience of building strategies that move an organisation forward for example for fundraising, marketing and communications or organisational development etc.

This role requires proven and demonstrable competence in fundraising strategy but more than that we seek an individual who is adept at creating and telling compelling stories, someone who can grasp a complex organisation, someone who can understand data and build a vision for how we communicate both within and outside the organisation.

You will be approachable, proactive, resilient and motivated to perform to a high standard. You will demonstrate patience, understanding and the ability to nurture relationships internally and externally to the benefit of all.

The ideal candidate will thrive on autonomy and be compelling, inspiring and strategic of thought. You will see trends and developments early and be a strong support for the Director and Leadership Team.
