The postholder will work alongside our Director of Development to shape and implement a series of ambitious fundraising campaigns to maximise our income and engagement and deliver against targets.

This is a key post in our fundraising team and will be critical to the success of the project. Applicants will need to have experience of managing high level prospects across mixed portfolios, and a strong track record in securing significant gifts and grants.

More information on the role, including a full job description and person specification, can be found on our website. Further information on the Edinburgh Biomes project can also be found on the website. . 

Interested candidates should send a CV and covering letter outlining the skills and experience you could bring to the post , along with a completed equal opportunities questionnaire from our website, by 5pm on Mon. 31st May. Interviews will be held on 17th & 18th June.
