As a senior member of the team you will be responsible for conceiving and delivering Global’s Make Some Noise content and fundraising activities across your allocated brands and broadcast centres.
As well as managing year-round fundraising initiatives, a focus of the role is to ensure the success of our big appeal in October.

You will be a creative, innovative thinker and back this up by putting in place robust processes and end-to-end thinking.
You’ll be a strong line manager, able to inspire and support your direct report.
