We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Senior Fundraising and Events Executive to help us develop and implement our strategic plans for income generation from the community as well as corporate businesses, through events, sponsorship and community fundraising teams.

Possessing knowledge of corporate, community and events fundraising, you must be an excellent communicator with the ability to motivate and influence prospective supporters to maximise their fundraising activity.
