Blind Veterans UK – Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships (London)

Salary £62,000 – £66,000 per annum

At Blind Veterans UK, we believe that no one who has served our country should have to battle blindness alone.  It is our mission to ensure that blind ex-Servicemen and women have access to the finest quality of services to help them discover life beyond sight loss.

The number of veterans we help is increasing rapidly as we implement our overall strategy to embed a national footprint and take our exceptional services to the beneficiary. To support this, we have developed an ambitious fundraising and engagement strategy to develop our brand and significantly grow our income over the next 5 years.

To achieve this, we are looking to recruit to 5 new senior posts across the Engagement and Fundraising division – each with responsibility for a key strand of the new strategy. This specific opportunity is to lead our Philanthropy and Partnerships team.

We need an exceptional individual to develop and implement a strategy to deliver a step increase in income from high value funding streams, including high net worth individuals, trusts and foundations, and corporates. Leading a talented team of circa 10 people, the role will lead on work to develop relationships with the target audience, and to solicit gifts and steward relationships, as part of the wider fundraising strategy.

In order to be considered for this role, you will have a proven track record in managing effective high-value/philanthropy/partnership teams to achieve a step change in targets. You will have experience of embedding strategic thinking and planning, and an ability to clearly articulate a strategic direction and plan.
