Are you a successful Fundraising Leader or Head of Fundraising looking for a fresh challenge with an exciting and innovative Charity? This is a great time to join medical imaging charity, Cobalt, as our Head of Fundraising as we enter our 60th year.  Leading the way in diagnostic imaging, Cobalt is working in partnership with the NHS to improve cancer and dementia outcomes now and in the future.  As Head of Fundraising, you’ll ensure that we continue to grow our fundraising profile and successes to enable us to continue to make a difference.

You’ll have a passion for the work we do, raising funds to support patients and their families through state-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge research and innovative projects that fund specialist nursing and research posts.

You’ll have experience at a senior level with a proven track record of success in generating income and managing capital appeals. You will set the fundraising strategy with the Trustees and Senior Management, lead and manage the existing fundraising team and manage and grow relationships with our valued network of supporters, volunteers, and partners. As well as overseeing and implementing the fundraising strategy and initiatives to ensure we meet our ambitious targets, you’ll also be hands on, with significant practical experience in at least one of the following areas: corporates, major gifts, grants and legacies.

An excellent communicator, you will be adept at building strong relationships with staff, volunteers, and supporters.  You will be comfortable being front facing, representing the Charity, hosting events and networking.  Working collaboratively with the senior team, you’ll be able to think and work at a strategic level and put operational plans in place.  Proactive and creative in your approach, you will also be well organised with strong attention to detail.  You’ll ensure high standards, with a professional and ethical approach to your work, and be motivated to make a difference.
