The TPP Fundraising and Development team are supporting a large national charity with a strong UK-wide brand with the search to a Head of Philanthropy and Special Events vacancy. This is a new role, working to the Director of Fundraising - you will be joining during an exciting period of change, and will be responsible for leading the development and implementation of a philanthropy and special events strategy and for establishing a new department.

In this role you will support the CEO, the Director of Fundraising and other senior colleagues in their development of successful donor relationships. You will also be expected to personally, and through your team, create, manage and develop relationships with high net worth donors and prospects to maximise their lifetime support for the charity.

This is a hugely exciting role and will suit a candidate with a track record of having personally secured six or seven figure gifts and of having driven income growth with high net worth individuals in a complex environment. Experience of having set up a philanthropy function will be highly advantageous although not essential. You will however, need to have some experience of leading, inspiring and motivating a fundraising team.

To apply, send through an updated CV in response to this advert in the first instance. Alternatively, contact Matt Adams on the TPP Fundraising and Development team for a confidential discussion.
