Director of Income Generation

Closing date: Friday 20 September (9am)

About us

We're the UK's leading charity for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

Right now, over 300,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that many people have never heard of. And the real number could be almost double that.

Because of the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding these diseases, thousands of people are suffering in silence. But they're not alone. We're here for them. And we're not going anywhere until we've beaten Crohn's and Colitis for good.

Alongside this you will proactively work as a member of the senior leadership team, playing a leading role in the strategic development and future success of the charity.

Our office is informal, open plan and designed to create a vibrant and productive workspace for all our staff. Less than a 30-minute train ride from London King’s Cross and with easy access by car, cycle or bus.

About you

Having extensive experience in fundraising activities you’ll have significant experience of successfully leading and motivating teams.
