Job description

Head of Fundraising & Partnerships (British Home)


British Home is a Royal Charter charity with over 160 years’ experience of providing specialist residential care, therapy, support, and hope for adults living with neuro-disability. We have a bold ambition to be recognised as Outstanding by the CQC by 2024 for providing safe and patient-centred care and, ultimately, then aim to be recognised for having Level 2 Rehabilitation Centre status after 2025.

Our new three-year strategy focuses on achieving our ambition by raising our capabilities in neuro-disability care provision and concurrently helping ensure the sustainability of the charity in the long term. 

We are recruiting our next Head of Fundraising and Partnerships to revitalise our fundraising strategy and lead the implementation to help deliver our strategic goals. 

This is a great role with huge potential and an opportunity to build a small team. 


Key Experience:


You will be an experienced fundraising professional working at a senior level with strong strategic and team leadership experience. 

With demonstrable experience overseeing diverse income generation activity, you  will lead a capital appeal project to refurbish our iconic building and to introduce new technologies and specialist equipment to improve the lives of British Home’s beneficiaries.

At British Home, our strong reputation for high-quality care and innovation is your canvas to paint success, fostering robust relationships that translate into impactful income through corporate and trust fund partners. 

By working closely with our committed CEO, you will identify funding priorities, develop project requirements and produce tailored applications for a diverse range of trusts and foundations, and nurture strong relationships with corporates and high-net individuals to support our work.

This is a great opportunity for a senior fundraising professional who is a self-starter and passionate about creating a meaningful impact on the lives of our residents and their families. Here, you'll have the freedom to put your own stamp on the role and be a driving force behind our ambitious mission. Every team member plays a crucial role, and your enthusiasm and dedication will be key to our success. If you share our commitment towards ensuring that everyone with neuro-disability is able to live as full and independent a life as possible, then we would love to hear from you.

Why should you join us? 

In the words of one staff member, we are ‘simply not a big brand provider’. We take pride in being a charity, offering a unique environment with a staff-centred approach. Here, we provide our residents with the time and individual support they need. Experience first-hand the positive impact your fundraising expertise will have on transforming the lives of our residents. Make a difference with British Home!
