You know who the key influencers in your community are and you will ensure they understand what we do so they will want to be associated with the charity. You will be responsible for raising income through existing networks of supporters, volunteers and building new relationships within the military, community groups and local business.

You will experience in a transferable role, perhaps from a sales and/or marketing background, with experience of general stakeholder management and hitting KPIs and targets, you will also have initiative, flair and enthusiasm for the work of the military.

Knowledge of the military or of military charities would be useful. Full driving licence is essential.
