The Royal Marines Charity – Director of Fundraising and Marketing (Exeter)


Based: Exeter
Salary: Up to £60,000

The Royal Marines Charity exists to help the entire Royal Marines family. We are a strong believer in once a Marine, always a Marine.

We are at an exceptionally exciting point in our history. One year ago, the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund merged with The C Group Supporting the Royal Marines and the newly merged Charity has now firmly established its simpler identity as The Royal Marines Charity, bringing together the very best from its predecessors both in support generated and support given.

As we approach this new stage in the Charity’s development we are seeking to appoint an outstanding professional Director of Fundraising and Marketing for the first time in our history. We are therefore looking for an outstanding and innovative senior leader with an outstanding track record in fundraising and marketing to support and lead our integrated marketing and fundraising team. You will be responsible for designing and implementing a strategy which delivers sustained income generation and market reach.

You will be responsible for building on the foundations of the existing supporter networks, and further developing the fundraising and marketing team so as to ensure a secure future for the support given to those who continue to put their lives on the line for our nation, and their families who face the challenge of supporting them.

You will be an experienced leader and exceptional communicator, with passion and vision who will embrace challenge as well as opportunity. A focused, structured planner you will actively contribute towards the wider strategic direction and development of RMC as a member of the senior management team. Substantial experience of initiating, developing and implementing marcomms and successful delivery of fundraising strategies will be critical.

Royal Marines pride themselves on being the first to understand, first to respond and adapt, and first to overcome – that’s the Commando Mindset. We seek to assist those who can no longer win their battles alone to make that Mindset a reality again.  Your commitment to our vision, creativity and innovation are essential.
