You will professionally engage with external stakeholders including our Board of Trustees, donors, partners and officials.

You enjoy working in an entrepreneurial environment and will take pride in supporting a purpose-driven charity move confidently into its next chapter of growth. Crucially, your personal sense of integrity and positive energy will make you a natural addition to the team.
