Work at Corbenic

Current Opportunities


A Fundraising Programme Manager will join us on a 2-year fixed term basis. We are undertaking a major capital project; the Community Centre is being designed with construction planned to start in the Summer of 2020. This major task, together with a growth in other activities, significantly increases our workload, and so this post has been created to support the implementation of these developments. By its nature, the role is developmental and much of its focus will be placed on helping to ensure we raise the funds necessary for our exciting project. Establishing relationships with our supporters is an essential part of this role and vital to ensure we are able to communicate the exceptional work we do daily in our community.

Please apply for this position through contacting Jenson Fisher.
