At Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home, love has no limits. We take a big picture view of what is best for dogs and cats; and a tireless, long-term approach to their care. We believe in protecting loving homes, finding love homes, and running our loving Home. We strive to create a safe and nurturing environment not only to the animals, but also our people.  

We are delighted to be recruiting for a Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager to join the Home’s Fundraising Team. The purpose of this exciting role is to identify, cultivate and steward a pipeline of opportunities that raise income and deliver impact for the Home through businesses, partnerships, and philanthropists who share our passion.

You will work closely with the Head of Fundraising, Director of Income and Engagement, and fundraising colleagues to contribute to the ongoing development of the fundraising strategy, ensuring alignment with the Home’s goals, and work collaboratively with the communications team to develop marketing and communications support for your income streams.
