We are delighted to be partnering Hope and Homes for Children; an international children’s charity that believes very simply, that every child needs and deserves the love and protection of a family.

Orphanages can never provide this. Hope and Homes for Children is the global expert in ending an outdated system of care that is destroying the lives of 8 million children today.

They are determined to end this injustice in our lifetime. And that takes money. Their fundraising strategy paves the way to double and then double income again to £30 million by 2022. This is where you come in.

You will provide overall leadership to their high performing, high value Community Partnerships Team in the implementation of plans and the continuation of their current trajectory of growth. This will include the direct leadership of their Once upon a time ball, a new London event planned for March 2018.

You will also lead on a number of the charities new strategic fundraising projects;

1) The Family Marathon – a major new mass participation event

2) End the Silence – a new public fundraising campaign

Given the strategic importance of this role the charity is searching for an experienced and senior fundraising leader who can hit the ground running. Rigorous in prioritization and an excellent communicator, you will need highly developed people, relationship management and project management skills, and a track record of leading change and growth. You will have excellent experience in special events and working with senior volunteers.

In return, they can offer you the opportunity of working within a career defining team, packed with talent and all pushing in the same direction – to end the orphanage care of children forever and do it in our lifetime.
