Your New Role in Context

You new role will be part of an integrated fundraising and marketing team but the postholder must be able to lead on specialist technical knowledge and delivery.

Your New Role Purpose

You new role will be pivotal in helping us to build upon this and become “legacy minded” in our stewardship of customers, donors and other supporters. Our ultimate measure of financial success is lifetime value across all forms of engagement with YMCA.
