Fundraising Events Product Executive Jobs in Belfast
Are you an experienced fundraiser looking to use your passion and expertise to support impactful arts activities involving people with experience of homelessness? Experience of implementing successful major giving and corporate income programmes? Want to be part of a dynamic, ambitious, joyful organisation? Then this could be the role for you!
The Choir with No Name (CWNN) has been building supportive choir communities with homeless and marginalised people since 2008.

“I’m so happy to have found CWNN. It’s made such a difference to me. I’ve broken a 25-year cycle with drugs and honestly, I don’t think I could have done it without the choir. I’m not existing anymore, I’m living, and that’s huge.”
