When we say that research is our sole focus, we really mean it: we spend all donations on funding research – 100% of it.
Join our team
We are a small, but rapidly expanding team committed to achieving our vision to advance medical research and change lives.
Could you help us to advance medical research, improve human health and change lives?
We are seeking a dynamic fundraising professional to join our small, but rapidly expanding team in our central London office. You will have three years experience of securing income from voluntary sources including one or more of the following: Trusts and Foundations, individuals or companies.
This is an extremely exciting time to join our team as we begin to deliver our new fundraising strategy for 2017-2020 to support the Foundation’s vision.
In order to advance medical research, improve human health and change people’s lives, we have an ambitious aim to double voluntary income by 2021. Reporting to the Head of Fundraising, you will play a crucial role in helping us to implement the new fundraising strategy so that we can fund even more promising medical research. This is a great opportunity to build on your fundraising experience and develop your skills in new areas of fundraising.
