Purpose of the role

The Director of Development and Communications has a crucial role in Islington Giving and Cripplegate Foundation. You will work closely with the Director to develop the focus of our fundraising and our targets for Islington Giving. You will take the lead in developing our strategy and delivering fundraising targets from individuals and local businesses, as well as assisting, when possible, on fundraising from trusts and foundations.  You will be responsible for developing the growth strategy for our new key ten-year partnership with Islington Council: Islington Together.

You will have the opportunity to contribute to a culture of philanthropy, build a diverse network of financial supporters, friends, and ambassadors in Islington and to continue to build a model which has been replicated elsewhere. This role would suit an individual who can energetically promote and market the Islington Giving brand. No two days will be the same.

The post-holder will manage and have responsibility for delivering Islington Giving’s ambitious fundraising plans and targets, as well as managing the Development and Communications functions and small team. The post-holder will represent the Foundation externally and develop and maintain relationships with key donors and partners, and as a part of the senior management team, will have influence across the board and at team level.
