One in five of us will be affected by disability at some point in our lives.  For over 70 years, Leonard Cheshire have supported disabled people globally to live, learn and work.  We’re working hard to break down barriers that deny disabled people their basic rights.

An opportunity has arisen in our Regional and Corporate Fundraising team at an exciting time, having recently launched our Work for All initiative designed to support our corporate partners to be more inclusive and diverse employers. 

In your role as Corporate Fundraising Development Lead, you will prospect corporate funders aligned to funding our Digital Inclusion, Education and Employment programmes.  With the support of the Regional and Business Development Manager, the successful candidate will take the lead on developing fundraising proposals, pitches and bids for national corporate prospects based in London.  

In addition to growing our corporate partnerships the role will also include an element of prospecting and grant management for London centric trusts.

To be considered for this role, you must be based in London or within a short commute.  You will require a strong background in corporate fundraising and evidence of close working with programme teams to create funding bids.  You should be a confident communicator, comfortable engaging with and influencing key stakeholders.  You will play a pivotal role in raising invaluable funds to support the work of Leonard Cheshire through demonstrating an empathy with the values and ethos of the charity.

Due to the impact of Covid-19, the role is currently based from home with the option of working flexibly from the London office when restrictions permit.

We seek candidates who can demonstrate a genuine commitment to our values and ethos.
