Director of Fundraising

The TPP Fundraising and Development team are working with a high profile national health charity, based in Central London, who are looking for a Director of Fundraising. Reporting to the CEO, this role will lead the fundraising directorate and will involve considerable liaison with teams across this ambitious, fast-moving and collaborative organisation.

Specifically, you will:

- Hold responsibility for the overall strategic development, direction and delivery of the charity's fundraising portfolio; currently legacies, individual giving, gaming, trusts, major donors, corporates, innovation funders, sporting events and community. Currently, this involves the responsibility for the delivery of c£8m income, and a leadership of a team of c25 staff.
- Build a culture of innovation that values, enhances and builds on proven methods of raising funds, whilst embracing new opportunities presented by new fundraising technologies, and wider digital innovation initiatives
- Develop and maintain high-level relationships with key funders, and other significant partners
- Work as part of the Senior Leadership Team to contribute to, and be jointly responsible for, the development and delivery of the charity's organisational strategy

You will be a strong leader, able to contribute to the overall strategic direction of the charity, and drive the charity's shared vision through your team and colleagues across the organisation. You will have a demonstrable track record of managing a broad portfolio of income generation activities, of having built high performing teams and of working with colleagues to fully integrate their work with fundraising activities.

The charity's culture is one that suits impact-driven candidates who are excited by the opportunities offered by digital, data and technology. It is also a great environment for candidates who are intellectually curious, open-minded, and thrive in an organisation that is still of a size that allows for agile decision making. You'll be excited by change, be willing to roll up your sleeves and pitch in when needed, and enjoy working collaboratively.

If you are interested in this excellent opportunity, in the first instance please send through an updated CV in response to this advert. Alternatively, please contact Matt Adams on the TPP Fundraising and Development team for a confidential discussion.

We value diversity at TPP and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
