Director of fundraising
Location: Newmarket or London
Reports To: Chief Executive
Salary: circa £80,000 + benefits
We are a veterinary charity offering clinical referral services and diagnostic testing for horses, dogs and cats across the UK and internationally. Through our research programmes we develop new diagnostic tests, treatments and vaccines to help thousands of animals. Our commitment to education ensures the knowledge we gain is shared internationally to benefit animals all around the world.
Thanks to our pioneering work improving diagnosis, treatment and prevention, horses, dogs and cats are living healthier, happier lives – in the UK and across the world.
We are recruiting for a new Director of Fundraising to build on our previous successes and to take our fundraising to the next level.
Our income sits at approximately £3-4m per year, coming from high value voluntary sources of major donor, trusts and events. We are seeking a high quality relationship fundraiser to lead our fundraising team and contribute across our charity as an active part of the senior leadership team.
Ideally coming from a background in the charity sector, you will be very passionate about the work we do and, consequently, families as well as people around the globe who are dependent on animals for their livelihoods.
The role itself will involve engaging with multiple stakeholders, so we are looking for a people person, attuned to the sensitivities of high value relationships. You will have the personal skills and gravitas to steward and influence senior stakeholders both internally and externally of the charity, as well as passion for the mentoring and development of staff.
This is a crucial role for our charity and we are incredibly excited about building our fundraising function under the leadership of a new Director of Fundraising.
