Do you want to change young people’s lives by equipping them to deal with all that life might throw at them? We do. We use the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life. Learning from adventure has the ability to develop a life script in the most immediate and positive way and this is what The Outward Bound Trust does superbly well. Through the generosity of our supporters, we are able to do what we do – provide the most serious adventure any young person will ever do in some of the toughest yet most beautiful environments in the UK.

We are looking for an outstanding Major Gifts Manager to build on our fundraising success which has seen income quadruple over the last five years. We are enormously proud of our achievements.  We have pioneered some of the highest value fundraising events in the sector and developed some of the clearest and very simple to understand propositions and are looking to raise £30m over the next four years. 

The Major Gifts Manager will manage and develop our sector-leading high value Friends scheme. You will be highly motivated and will have an entrepreneurial edge and will be brilliant at building relationships with very senior people who want to make a difference by the level of their gift.

The Outward Bound Trust is a fantastic organisation to work for – happy, successful and dynamic.  If you love making friends and money for a great cause and are looking to get to the next level within major gift fundraising – we will provide you with the best experience of your career.
