Executive Director, Income Generation
Executive Director, Income Generation, Stroke Association
Flexible, London/South East England
Stroke is the leading cause of disability and one of the biggest killers in the UK each year.
The staggering truth is that the majority of these strokes are preventable. It is this that drives us to achieve our bold and clear vision of a world where stroke becomes a diminishing condition and all those who are affected by the disability and disruption it causes to their lives receive the best possible help and support.
We have valiantly led the fight against stroke for over 20 years and achieved so much through our tireless work in influencing and campaigning to improve stroke care and support people to make the best possible recovery. We fund world-class research to develop new treatments and ways to prevent the devastation of stroke and it is heartening that breakthroughs in treatment have halved the number of people dying from stroke in the UK. It is equally disheartening that stroke is still the second biggest killer in the world, which is why we are also committed to crucial research and projects across the globe.
Under our new Chief Executive, and with the full support of our Trustees, we are committed to achieving so much more through a dynamic new strategy and ambitious plans for growth. Essential to achieving our success is the role of Executive Director of Income Generation with the compelling brief to bring outstanding leadership to an established function together with a refreshing, creative and successful approach to significantly increasing our income. We need to maximise every opportunity to fund and expand our vital work.
As a key member of the Executive Board and a strategic leader, you will develop an exciting and highly effective new fundraising and income generation strategy and lead a team of engaged and motivated fundraising specialists. In short, you and your team will be integral in making a significant step change, uncovering significant untapped potential and doubling our income by 2025 in line with our new strategy and ambitions.
A role of this importance needs an outstanding individual with the vision and insight to grow our income and awareness, create new products, develop and engage a far wider range of supporters. You will have an enviable track record in fundraising growth in the not for profit sector combined with a leadership style that is mature, supportive and highly effective.
As an accomplished, confident and entrepreneurial Executive Director of Income Generation you will have the energy and passion to lead a positive and compelling vision of future income success, creating a fundraising team culture of high performance and outstanding results where everyone is encouraged to excel, and all of our 5,000 strong staff and volunteers are united as fundraising ambassadors for the Stroke Association.
