I am working on with a great Health Charity, located near Herfordshire as they are currently in need of a new Head of Philanthropy to join them on a Maternity Cover Contract, with the opportunity for a permanent part time job share extension. They are looking for someone to work 4 days p/week (30 hours) and are offering a competitive salary + benefits, including a 7% employee pension contribution.

As part of this role, you will manage the Major Donor and Legacy income streams which has a combined target of £1.15M in 2018/2019 out of the £3M annual revenue of the organisation. You will be identifying and developing relationships with new mid-level and major donor prospects, as well as leading on the stewardship of the existing supporters.

In terms of the work you'll be doing with Legacy - you'll be leading on the development and implementation of the legacy strategy and managing existing projects with administrative support.

It is important for you to have prior experience of managing major donors and be able to demonstrate key examples of previous strong relationship building to both new and existing supporters. If this is you, they would love to have you join their busy, dynamic and professional fundraising team!
