The majority of the funding for RNIB’s important work comes from fundraising activities and other voluntary income sources so it’s critical that we innovate to diversify the ways we engage the public in order to generate sustainable income that can drive our ambitious agenda.

RNIB is now investing in two new roles to boost fundraising innovation capability and accelerate progress. New Innovation and Development managers will lead and support fundraising innovation and development projects designed to ensure RNIB’s fundraising programme continues to be optimised and delivers a sustainable return.

We are looking for entrepreneurial minded self-starters who can lead on the scoping and development of new products and propositions for pilot, as well as supporting optimisation of the current fundraising programme. Agile project management, resource investigation and stakeholder management skills are crucial, and experience of navigating large organisations / working in the charity sector is desirable
