Scotland Partnership Co-ordinator, Dundee, Scotland

The Trussell Trust is a national charity working to end hunger and poverty in the UK. Over the past decade there has been rapid growth in use of foodbanks across the country, and as a result the Trust now supports a network of over 400 foodbanks providing emergency food supplies. The Trust’s work has diversified in the last few years to provide a range of services to support people in crisis and help them break the cycle of poverty.

With poverty and hunger still on the increase, the need for the Trust’s services continues to grow. In order to meet the demand, the Trust needs to raise more and more funds to support its vital work.

Working with the Scotland Network team and the wider UK-based Fundraising team, the successful applicant will develop and implement a fundraising strategy to secure income from a wide variety of sources to generate sustainability for the work of The Trussell Trust foodbank network in Scotland.

You will have a proven track record of generating income, at least three years' experience of working with corporate benefactors and a passionate commitment to making a difference.
