About the role
We're looking for a Development Manager to ensure that we are a leader in philanthropic fundraising, able to make a real impact with the vital research that we fund.

Looking after warm and cold contacts, you'll play a key role in maximising our engagement levels and focus on gifts of £50k +, you'll develop compelling proposals for donors, working with existing individuals while also growing your network.
We're looking for someone with the confidence to get out there and build networks and who has the ability to make things happen. External experience and the ability to hit the ground running would be ideal, but relevant transferable skills will certainly be considered.

As well as being a team player, you'll also need to have:
