We care for children and young people across West, North and East Yorkshire at our hospice, based in Boston Spa, and also through our work in the community.

We are entering an exciting period of growth, which has seen recent investment in the fundraising team. As part of that growth, we have a fantastic opportunity to join a high-performing fundraising team in this new role, where you will be responsible for developing, managing and implementing our major gifts strategy.

The successful applicant will have experience securing major gifts and will enjoy an externally focussed role. You will be an effective communicator with the ability to build relationships at all levels with philanthropists, their staff and networks in order to directly influence their giving decisions.

If you have excellent donor stewardship skills and are looking to flourish in a high-profile environment, our team is supportive and passionate with substantial fundraising experience, giving you exciting development opportunities. This is a rare opportunity to contribute significantly to the lives of children, young people and their families.
