Ref: GSe49420

One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. As the only UK charity for people affected by all lung and respiratory disease – from mild asthma through to lung cancer – the British Lung Foundation is here to provide hope, help and a voice for every one of them. We are leading the fight against lung disease by providing support, funding vital research, and campaigning for better prevention, treatment and care.

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Director of Fundraising who will help us achieve our vision that one day everyone will breathe clean air with healthy lungs. As a key member of our Executive team you oversee the development and delivery of our fundraising strategy and play a leading role as we pursue our corporate strategy over the next five years.

This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding individual to lead an award-winning team that has already made significant strides in increasing people’s awareness and access to our services and in growing our fundraised income. It goes without saying that you will come with a proven track record of significantly growing sustainable income whilst increasing engagement with a cause. An inspirational leader, you will know how to get the best out of a multidisciplinary team and work effectively across the organisation to ensure we implement the right conditions for our fundraising activity to flourish.

This is a vital role in the fight to combat lung disease.
