Job description

About Us

We’re the charity helping millions of people feel happier and healthier by spending more time on and along our canals and rivers. Our rich and tranquil spaces provide places to pause, relax and escape. But without extraordinary people, and the funding to make it happen, all of this would be lost. That’s where you come in.

We are looking for a Legacy Development Officer to join our Fundraising Team and work with us to deliver our ambitious plans to accelerate growth in charitable income over the next 3 years.  This is a new role and will play an important part in growing and building new communities of supporters from the ground up. 

We are looking for people passionate about relationship management and stewarding supporters to give a great experience whilst raising money for the Trust.  We exist as a fundraising team so that we can do more for communities up and down the country using the power and benefits our waterways have to offer for Wellbeing, Nature, Employability & Urban Regeneration. If you are inspired to change lives young and old then we would love to hear from you.  Join us, and make life better by water for everyone. Every day.

Location: This is a remote working role, and as such we are very pleased that we can offer flexibility in location, however the successful candidate will be expected to attend our Birmingham centre hub/office (and other locations on occasions) for team and collaboration meetings on a monthly basis.
