They are currently seeking a Fundraising Manager to develop new and innovative fundraising opportunities which ensure that the Trust meets its strategic targets and objectives.

If you are passionate about giving, have a talent for working in a flexible and creative way and have a pragmatic approach, we’d love to hear from you.
