From a management perspective, you will have responsibility for team-building, overseeing and coordinating the activities of volunteers, and other staff involved with income generation, marketing and fundraising in an effective and sensitive manner. You will also have an opportunity to develop and implement the communications and sponsorship strategy and, in cooperation with the Accountant, improve the performance monitoring and reporting of all income generation activities.
