Job purpose
The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is recruiting for an ambitious and visionary new Director of Fundraising and Communications. You will join a successful fundraising team to lead the next phase of growth, providing strategic leadership, exceptional relationship management, and creativity to the fundraising and communications function. We have a growing supporter base and have achieved year-on-year income growth to date. This is an exceptional opportunity for the new Director to influence growth across all fundraising streams and to deepen engagement through a targeted communications strategy.

The Director will play a leading role in achieving our vision of ‘A world where no one suffers from tinnitus’. A key focus will be to develop and deliver a fundraising strategy to raise the funds required to build a tinnitus biobank. The biobank will be a cutting-edge research facility driving forward the understanding of tinnitus, new treatments, and the potential discovery of a cure. Considerable work has gone into setting up the opportunities to fundraise for a tinnitus biobank and the Director will maximise the fundraising potential.


To be successful, you will need to demonstrate experience as an exceptional senior leader, enabling a team to deliver challenging income targets across the fundraising portfolio. You will have a demonstrable track record of securing significant gifts or partnerships from major donors (individuals), trusts and/or corporates. You will also have extensive understanding of effective communications campaigns and how to manage a communications function that delivers on brand, digital, production, PR, and campaigns. You will have experience of working with trustees and senior stakeholders to deliver organisational priorities and growth.
