Rewilding Britain wants to see rewilding flourishing across Britain - reconnecting us with the natural world, sustaining communities and tackling the climate emergency and extinction crisis. As the only national rewilding charity in Britain, we champion rewilding, acting as a catalyst for debate and action and demonstrating the power of nature to address the enormous threats we face.

This is an exciting and rare opportunity to join a young charity at this pivotal stage of growth and to make an impact on Rewilding Britain’s ability to catalyse rewilding.

We are looking for an experienced Major Donor Manager who will build and strengthen relationships with existing and potential high value donors with the ability to make transformational gifts. You’ll skilfully and articulately engage donors, bringing to life our most pressing priorities and match these with their wishes, building mutually beneficial long-term relationships.

You will have a background of working with high net-worth clients or donors, along with excellent relationship management skills, and you will be looking to work with an ambitious and growing environmental organisation like Rewilding Britain.

We hope you will share our passion for rewilding and nature-based solutions to the climate and biodiversity crisis. You will be comfortable working autonomously and remotely. You will be part of a small fundraising team, with a strong focus on working closely with the wider staff team to support existing donor relationships and pipeline development.
