SOGB is currently undergoing significant change with a new CEO and a renewed energy and vision to increase its impact and delivery to people with ID across the UK.
Previous fundraising has been outsourced and therefore this is a new position. We are looking for a highly motivated Development Director to oversee the completion and delivery of our new fundraising plan, consolidate the management of fundraising relationships, bring in new partnerships, explore new revenue opportunities and work alongside the CEO on a new communications and PR plan for key stakeholder audiences as we build and develop the work and profile of SOGB.
New revenue opportunities include a major gift programme, new types of commercial partnerships and a re-frame of the current corporate programme, with the clear objective of achieving growth in income and diversification of funding.
You will play a significant role in representing SOGB externally, and will be responsible for the management of some of our most important and valued relationships, taking an active role in building and maintaining those relationships.
You will need to be an experienced strategic fundraiser, excellent communicator and strong leader, able to motivate and inspire others to connect and contribute to our work and to build your own fundraising and communications team in line with revenue growth.
This is a target-driven role and you must be able to demonstrate successful attainment of targets as well as the ability to thrive under pressure.

Application is by CV and a Statement (maximum 1,000 words) which should concentrate on how you meet the experience and knowledge requirements.
