Are you an experienced and talented fundraising professional who is looking to develop their career and play a key leadership role in the continued growth and impact of our organisation?

Scottish Huntington’s Association is the only charity in Scotland dedicated exclusively to the care and support of families whose lives are impacted by Huntington’s disease, an incurable hereditary condition with severe physical, cognitive and mental symptoms. Our expertise is recognised at national and international levels and we work with funders including NHS, Scottish Government and health and social care partnerships across the country.

We seek a Head of Income Generation and Administration with a track record of leading and inspiring teams to maximise organisational income.

You will have experience of leading a Fundraising or Income Generation Team, including coaching, mentoring and support to enable colleagues to achieve individual and team targets.

With a strong knowledge of the charity sector, ideally working within health and social care, you will have the skills to secure and increase funding income from individual giving, community fundraising, corporate giving, trusts and grants, and statutory funding through service level agreements and tenders is a must.

Additionally you will bring strong financial understanding, a good eye for detail and the confidence to play a key role within our leadership team to drive forward change and improvement throughout the organisation and the sector.

It’s an exciting time to join Scottish Huntington’s Association as we prepare to launch Standing Tall: A Strategy for Growth 2023 – 2028 to transform the care of Huntington’s families, expand specialist services and deepen involvement in clinical research and trials.

This follows two years of significant expansion in our specialist teams, growth in funding, a rise in media engagement, majority parliamentary support for our work, and the success of our ground-breaking Dance 100 fundraising event in Glasgow.

Funding for this post is provided by Scottish Huntington’s Association, an ambitious and hard-working organisation with staff who are passionate about the work we do.
