The TPP Fundraising and Development team are supporting a successful and highly ambitious Sussex-based Youth Charity with the search for a Fundraising and Commercial Director. This is a newly created role and you will work closely with the CEO and wider Executive Team to implement and further refine strategies to increase unrestricted income from both Fundraising and Commercial income streams. You will also be responsible for the organisation's communication strategies, leading on work to effectively communicate the organisation's purpose and fundraising propositions across local communities, businesses and corporate organisations.

Specifically, you will:

- be accountable for developing the organisation's fundraising strategy by building and developing a fundraising team with targets to significantly increase unrestricted income across a variety of income streams (in particular Grants/Trusts, Individual Giving, Corporate, Events and Sponsorship)

You will be a proven strategist, confident in building and leading teams of staff, and a knowledge (or aptitude for) communications and brand development. The role will be based in East Sussex with some travel possible throughout East/West Sussex and Surrey. An allowance may be available for candidates looking to relocate.
