Job Description

Legacy Fundraising Manager Responsibilities:

Legacy income is RNIB’s single biggest source of voluntary income (c£38m per year) but the number of gifts has been falling in recent years.

Either home based within your region or working from one of RNIB’s offices in Leeds or Manchester, this post will involve significant and regular travel across the UK including overnight stays.
