Full Time

Our vision is for life to be better for children and young people who have life-threatening or life-limiting conditions; and for their parents, brothers and sisters, and those who love them, to receive support. 

Our primary aim is to provide specialist care and support to babies, children, young people and the whole family from diagnosis, during day to day family life, times of crisis, end of life and through bereavement. 

By virtue of our preeminent position, we also seek to influence the care and support provided by other professionals.

We say that we are all about life, which means that we are all about people.

As Director of Fundraising and Marketing you will bring that genuine empathy needed to understand why people will want to support our work if only we ask them in absolutely the right way and at the right time.

Long-term partnerships are the foundation for all successful fundraising and we are no exception so careful cultivation of the individuals and organisations that support our work is absolutely central to our ongoing success and it will be your #1 priority.

You will be comfortable leading from the front, being a visible face of the organisation.  You will be equally at ease alongside local volunteer groups who fundraise on our behalf, influential donors and major celebrities.

When the ‘ask’ is needed, you will know how to craft it.
