Are you a whizz at sourcing, writing and pitching successful funding applications to trusts, foundations and other valuable funds? Do you thrive on achieving significant income growth and smashing ambitious targets? Do you want job satisfaction knowing that your work is making a big difference to families across the UK?

It takes a special person to take a strategic and operational lead in generating income for a registered charity like The Breastfeeding Network.

Working with our fabulous service teams and finance colleagues, you will draw on your honed skills and extensive experience in ambitious income generation to secure strategic and core funding from trusts, foundations, legacies, community fundraising activity and beyond. Your work will be essential for ensuring that all families can continue to rely on the services the Breastfeeding Network provides, well into the future.

We are a Scottish registered charity making a difference to women and families across the UK. Our vision is that women and families feel supported in their feeding choices and are able to breastfeed for as long as they choose.
