Current vacancies:

Deputy director (Development)

Are you ready to take your amazing fundraising skills to the next level, and make a whale-sized impact on the planet?  Can you inspire and lead a dynamic team with ambitions to save the whale and save the world?

WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation has ambitious new 10-year goals aimed at achieving our vision of a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.

We have been successfully diversifying our income as our development team harnesses the growing interest in conservation, the environment, and the emerging understanding of the role whales and dolphins play as nature-based solutions to the climate and nature emergencies.

We have high retention rates from our loyal individual donors, and a strong track record of nurturing successful and innovative corporate partnerships.  We are increasing income from trusts, foundations, and philanthropy, and have identified enormous potential for growth in these areas.

We are now looking for an ambitious fundraiser to help take us to the next level, building on a solid foundation of support and goodwill to secure the resources we need to achieve our organisational goals, and providing inspiring leadership to our talented team of fundraisers.

This is a hugely exciting time to be joining WDC, as we grow our brand and reputation, and fly the flag for our cause on the world stage.  It’s a chance to work with talented colleagues on an amazing cause, and to harness the passion of a wide range of people committed to protecting our biggest allies in the fight against climate breakdown.
