Changing Faces is the UK’s leading charity for everyone who has a medical condition, mark or scar that makes them look different.
For over 25 years, they’ve provided life-changing advice and support for people with a visible difference through their expert counselling and skin camouflage services. They build people’s confidence to live their life on their terms. And they challenge prejudice, respect differences and speak to a world that needs to change.
The Head of Philanthropy will be responsible for building on the charity’s successful trust portfolio, with a significant proportion of the charity’s income coming from an established portfolio of smaller trusts and recent work to target larger multi-year gifts. The role also includes actively developing the charity’s growing major donor programme, with the support of a supportive Leadership Team and Board.
Joining a small, successful team you’ll have the confidence to oversee significant funders, alongside a very strong pipeline in the region of £1m. The charity will be embarking on a three-year plan to double its reach and increase income by 30%.
The charity is currently enjoying a spike in interest following several successful campaigns including The Telegraph Christmas Appeal, and a continuing focus and conversation in society and the media on subjects such as body image and discrimination.
Reporting to this role is a successful Trust Executive, currently overseeing c.£250,000 from a robust portfolio of smaller trusts.
There is a wide range of fundable opportunities and an engaged network of supporters, so this is a great opportunity for someone to galvanise an exciting period of momentum for a charity towards building a future where everyone with a visible difference on their face or body has the confidence, support and opportunity to lead the lives they want.
