Love working to make a life changing difference for children and young people? Want to work with a charity that is agile, solvent and really wants to listen to new ideas and build on recent successes? Then look at becoming our Head of Trusts & Foundations- our incumbent goes on maternity leave at the end of March and if you do a great job you could be made permanent to strengthen our team for the future.

We are a great team, friendly, motivated and lots of fun but we work hard too- if that sounds like a team you want to join consider applying now WITH A CV and a covering letter telling us why you want to join us- 1 page only please.

Mostly it's home working at the moment but we are keen to get back to the office when we can in a safe way so you will need to be in travelling distance of Tonbridge in Kent even though we are a national charity. Happy to look at individual circumstances though.

This is the formal JD but we value candidates who are flexible and willing to get involved where it is needed:
