Location: Wolverhampton (hybrid working – 2 days home based)
Type: Full time
Deadline for applications: 15th November

Potential is everywhere. In every home on every street, from affluent suburbs to inner-city estates. The difference is that some young people get every opportunity to explore their potential. Others don’t. It’s about opportunity. 

At The Way, we believe that all young people in Wolverhampton should have the opportunity to discover their passion and their purpose. To find out what they’ve got and where it could take them. Our Youth Zone is a purpose-built space fizzing with energy and crammed with incredible facilities. It is staffed by skilled and dedicated youth workers who truly believe in young people in the city – helping them see what they could achieve, and giving them the skills, confidence and ambition to go for it. 

Year in, year out we deliver life-changing support that helps thousands of young people in Wolverhampton from a diverse range of backgrounds to thrive. It’s inspiring. It’s empowering. And it works.


A truly exciting post, working alongside the Chief Executive and key members of the Trustee Board, to deliver circa £1.1 million of philanthropy for Wolverhampton Youth Zone, The Way. This is a senior leadership role, where you will steward and renew Patrons & Supporters who have made major gifts; drive new Patron (major donor) income; oversee the work of the Trusts and Grants Manager to generate large trust gifts for unrestricted income plus occasional targeted programmes; and manage the Fundraising Officer who drives corporate and community income. This role will lead on the strategic development and implementation of new, diverse income streams (notably a mid-level giving programme, and events & community fundraising).
