We are looking for an accomplished fundraiser or senior marketing and communications manager to lead our Development and Communications team as our new Director of Development and Communications. You will join us as part of our Senior Management Team to help us to craft the stories, across our fundraising and communications, that will win the hearts and minds of a broader audience coming together to tackle social issues.

This is a critical yet exciting time for the charity, as we look to extend and deepen the reach of our programmes, capitalise on our learning since Covid-19, accelerate income from individual and corporate donors and start to gear up for the next Arts Council National Portfolio round.

Permanent position; 4 – 5 days per week

Salary: £45,000 – £50,000 per annum (pro-rata) dependent on skills and experience, plus benefits

Closing date for completed applications is 10:00 GMT on Tuesday 8 June. First round interviews 21 and 22 June. Second round interviews 29 and 30 June.

If you are looking to take on your first director-level position, or are a more senior candidate who may be returning to work after a pause in your career or are looking to balance a role with wider parenting and caring responsibilities, we would love to hear from you! If you would like an informal conversation to discuss this role further, please contact recruitment consultant Kane Moore at Achates Philanthropy kane@achatesphilanthropy.com
