The successful candidate will work within the Corporate and Major Gifts Team and have a direct influence on fundraising income generated.

You will have enthusiasm for research, lead generation and winning new business opportunities. You should have either recent similar corporate experience, or transferable skills from other industries and sectors.

You will be able to balance working independently, as well as within the wider team.
