About the Charity

Henshaws is a much-loved charity that supports individuals living with sight loss and other disabilities across the North of England and increasingly, internationally. They help people gain independence and live life to the fullest, something we often take for granted.

The charity delivers practical, caring and imaginative services, including specialist housing and support, residential care, education, training, community outreach services and leisure activities. They work to raise awareness about visual impairment amongst the wider community and due to their fantastic efforts, last year their fundraising income increased by an incredible 50%!

About the Major Donor & Corporate Fundraising Manager

Are you looking for a fresh challenge to take your major donor and corporate fundraising career to the next stage?

As Major Donor & Corporate Fundraising Manager, you will lead the major donor and corporate fundraising streams in the North West. You will be maximising the value, diversity and longevity of the major relationship and corporate portfolio through excellent donor stewardship and relationship management.

You will have a successful track record of either securing support from major donors or handling corporate campaigns (in either a charity or commercial environment). You will be a skilled communicator who feels comfortable effectively building major relationships and corporate fundraising for an inspiring cause.

Your major focus will be on the Knowledge Village project (a free online resource providing knowledge and expertise to people across the world experiencing or working with sight loss and disability), for which you will be actively securing funding and reaching potential new beneficiaries.

This is a great opportunity for someone to maximise potential, lead on important major relationships, and above all have a long-term impact on the strategic direction for Henshaws.
