Job Description

We have a vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm. We are the leading charity for the 4.6 million people with diabetes in the UK; we fund critical research, influence policy, campaign for better health outcomes and treatments and provide a range of information and support services.

The impact of Covid-19 in the past 18 months has thrown into stark relief the health inequalities and outcomes that exist across the UK and for many charities has had a huge impact on their ability to generate income. The pandemic has also had a disproportionate impact on those living with diabetes and their loved ones. As a charity, our work has never been more needed and we have come through this period in a strong position, more resilient and ready to grow our income and impact even further. 

Now is an exciting time to join Diabetes UK as our next Director of Engagement and Fundraising and a real opportunity for you to make your mark in the role. We need a strategic, ambitious and experienced leader with good emotional intelligence and strong track record of driving income growth and engagement to join our executive leadership team and help raise our profile and impact even further. 

You will be leading our largest, integrated directorate, encompassing fundraising, engagement, marketing and communications, and will be a truly collaborative, visible and enabling leader who demonstrates a long term, joined up approach to engagement and who can energise and develop teams and build on the gains we’ve already made.  You will be able to spot opportunities and will have experience of driving and delivering change and in turn will support and influence the organisation to ensure our ambitions are realised. 

Diabetes UK aims to be an equal opportunity employer; the organisation recognises and respects the value and diversity of all.
