We are therefore looking for someone to take on the responsibility to shape a planned programme of major gift stewardship to enable and encourage supporters to invest in the Trust in a way which brings them joy and delivers impact for the people the charity supports.

As a national charity, the Trust is able to consider applicants from across the UK who are willing to work through Microsoft Teams and attend meetings in any of our nine communities.
