MOVE Europe’s (registered name The Move Partnership) vision is for every disabled young person to have choice and opportunities by learning independent movement. Our mission is to enable disabled young people to gain independent mobility through the use of the MOVE Programme, a 6-step programme used collaboratively in all aspects of an individual’s life, throughout their whole day, by all of the people that work and live with them. The MOVE ethos is centred around a ‘can-do’ approach, where everyone around the individual dares to dream and works on ambitious goals set by the child and their family. Because of this approach, individuals on the MOVE Programme achieve significant positive outcomes, and progress is usually made much quicker than if the person was just accessing traditional therapy services alone.
We work to achieve our mission through delivering the following activities throughout the UK to over 140 schools and therapy teams. Most of our current work is funded by trading income, where teams purchase our services and access support through membership.
- Training: we deliver high-quality training that empowers education and therapy teams to use the MOVE Programme with the disabled individuals they support.
- Support: we provide support services and quality assurance for the teams that use the MOVE Programme to ensure best practice and great outcomes for the disabled individuals they support. This includes network meetings, conferences, the MOVE Quality Mark, 1:1 support, webinars and CPD opportunities.
- Growth: we develop the MOVE Programme across the UK and Europe to reach as many disabled young people as possible who could benefit.
Join us at MOVE Europe in our 25th year of enabling disabled young people to learn independence through movement, as our Senior Trusts and Statutory Fundraiser. Reporting to the Director of MOVE Europe, and joining a small, agile, and highly effective team, the owner of this role will play a pivotal part in the organisation’s growth ambitions.
The main purpose of the role is to develop and lead the organisation’s trust and statutory fundraising, working to grow a portfolio of new funders of various sizes (4 – 5 figures) and, through effective communication and stewardship, secure income for the organisation, as part of our 3-year strategy. As a new role within the team, the post-holder will have a brilliant opportunity to develop and lead our fundraising activity to create real change for the young people we support.
As with the rest of the MOVE Europe team, the post-holder will be employed by Enham Trust, but will be seconded to the MOVE Europe organisation.

- Develop, manage, and steward our trust portfolio by building and maintaining strong relationships, leading on all actions with trusts, including setting up and attending meetings and project visits.
- Work closely with operational colleagues from the outset to involve them in strategic funding opportunities and to ensure grant reporting requirements are clear at the point of award.
- Maintain awareness of the trust, foundation and statutory fundraising landscape and proactively seek new opportunities that align to our objectives.

This is an enormously demanding but epic role that sits right at the heart of the life of the charity – and is beyond vital to our supporter engagement and fundraising!
There are two critical components to the role:
Firstly, supported by senior management and colleagues, you will lead the design and delivery of in-house fundraising events that our supporters will love. These presently range from galas to sporting challenges to more intimate supporter briefing events. Highlights of the current calendar include our flagship corporate gala which in recent years has been held at the Tate and raised c£1m; the utterly unique Sierra Leone Marathon, now in its 10th year; & the Big Ride, a 2-day corporate-focussed cycle challenge.
Secondly, you will lead participant recruitment, management and fundraising maximisation across all in-house managed events and third-party challenges, such as the London Marathon and other sporting events, in the UK and globally.
We are constantly looking to innovate and add to our events calendar. A critical additional element to the role will be working with colleagues to imagine new awesome in-house events – and to search for fresh exciting third-party opportunities that will thrill our supporters and give them fantastic platforms for fundraising.
