Head of Major Giving
We’ve made a significant impact on the lives of lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people in the UK since we were founded in 1989, but our impact and progress would have been hindered if we didn’t have the money to fund our campaigns and there is still a long way to go before we reach a society where LGBT people are treated equally and fairly.

Supporting the Director of Fundraising, you’ll focus on creating, building and maintaining long-term relationships with our existing mid and high-level donors and be responsible for implementing a major gifts programme. You will also be responsible for developing our new volunteer board to maximise its impact.
You’ll be a big part of a key team, so you’ll need to demonstrate that you’ve significant experience of securing major gifts and of developing major donor programmes in a fast moving, target driver third sector environment with proven success in leading a team.
