Salary £32,101, – £36,130 depending on skills and experience

Our Vision is to be the leading charity on neurodiversity in Scotland, with a strong reputation within the UK and international recognition for our expertise and research. We aim to help create a world in which no mind is left behind. We have a close partnership with a team of researchers in the Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre at the University of Edinburgh: ensuring that research translates into practical resources is at the heart of our mission.


This is a key role for the organisation, supporting the development and delivery of SMC’s fundraising strategy and its ambitious objectives.  The Development Team is small in size – currently the Director, a Philanthropy and Partnerships Manager and the post holder of this role. However, we are a team with big ambitions and a strategic plan that will transform our philanthropic and business development income streams over the next five years. Therefore, we require individuals of the highest calibre who can be innovative, creative, proactive and flexible, with the ability to turn your skills to unexpected challenges.


We are looking for a highly experienced Fundraiser with a minimum of three years’ experience of managing grant applications to Charitable Trusts and Foundations and demonstrable success in developing high quality, compelling Fundraising propositions and securing income from a robust pipeline of funders.
