You have a passion for delivering a high standard of customer, stakeholder, or donor experience. You will be an excellent writer who enjoys writing persuasive communications to convince others into taking action. You will have a desire to learn how to enable interesting opportunities to connect with, cultivate and steward your donors and you will be tenacious and creative in attracting new contacts, ensuring a positive future of philanthropic support for Southampton.

About us
