Charity People are thrilled to be working in partnership with Galop who are searching for a Head of Fundraising and Communications to join their team. This is a newly created position and an exciting time to join Galop following a period of growth.


Galop are the UK’s LGBT+ anti-abuse charity working with victims and survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, and other forms of abuse including so-called conversion therapies, forced marriage, and honour-based abuse.

Galop’s fundraising portfolio has huge potential. You will identify the opportunities and develop a successful and diverse program with a focus on corporate and individual giving. You will also work closely with the LGBT+ community to grow the existing base of people fundraising on Galop’s behalf.

This role is part of the senior leadership team. You will also manage the Communications Manager and direct the work of an external grant writer for trusts and foundations applications.
