The role will be varied and interesting and require you to present to groups, secure sponsorship and attend networking events across the region.

This charity is inherently values based and all the team are hugely passionate about the work of the organisation – we want to find someone who will share this passion and use their skills to raise money that will transform the lives of families across the region.

The role will be based partly out of the charity’s offices in Leeds, partly out in the business community across Yorkshire and partly from home, making for a flexible working environment and varied working week.
