Job Description

The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education. This makes it more likely they will struggle throughout their lives, widening social inequality. It’s a cycle that we’re determined to break.

We work with thousands of brilliant teachers, schools, universities and partners in England and Wales and we are seeking a fantastic Director of Fundraising to join us in our mission.

Based in our London Head Office the Director of Fundraising will be working closely with the Board, CEO and senior team, and plays a crucial role in delivering Teach First’s ambitious strategy, building on our strong foundations and record of success to lead an exciting new phase in the growth of fundraising at Teach First.

You are an experienced fundraising leader who shares our vision for all young people and who has spearheaded rapid, sustained growth within a high value fundraising environment and ideally with significant experience in Corporate Fundraising. 

Along with the satisfaction of knowing you are working for an organization who are making a real difference, you will also receive circa £72, 000 per annum & excellent benefits.

The day when no child’s future is limited by their background is coming, yet, there is still more to be done. Join us and help us ensure every child in the UK has a fair shot at achieving their ambitions.
