Director of Fundraising

Director of Fundraising

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join a charity on a mission to improve the lives of young people in London. Last year, London Youth worked with over 27,000 young people through their sports development, employability, youth action, arts and outdoor education programmes. Their membership network of over 500 community youth organisations supported thousands more. Together they create opportunities for young people they would not otherwise have had.

Throughout London Youth's history, community youth organisations have provided a constant lifeline and a vital safe space outside the family and formal education. London Youth's vision today is that all young Londoners grow up healthy and safe, able to express themselves, navigate a fulfilling career and make a positive contribution in their communities. Their mission is to support and challenge young people to become the best they can be: developing their confidence, resilience, and relationship skills.

To continue their path to reach as many young people as possible London Youth are now looking for an inspirational and motivating leader to join them in the capacity of Director of Fundraising on a permanent basis.
