In addition, we are looking for someone who can support the strategic development of the organisation, working closely with the Chief Executive to include partnership and relationship development, income generation and overall growth across a number of areas of our work.
Identifying potential new sources of funding and developing proposals to be submitted for external funding support to ensure the continuation and development of existing or new areas of work will also be part of the role.
