Fish Legal are seeking a highly motivated and talented fundraising professional to develop new income streams to support the work of the organisation in fighting for fish, fishing and the environment, making polluters pay and campaigning for better regulation and protection of our aquatic ecosystems.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of generating fundraising income from multiple sources. Ideally you will have a passion for angling, conservation and the water environment, but this is not essential.

Reporting to the CEO, a key objective for the successful candidate will be to develop donation and legacy income as well as identifying and securing suitable grant-based opportunities. This role will focus on outbound activity and require experience in both face to face and remote communications and fundraising. Experience of managing donations and legacies with high-net-worth individuals, charities, foundations, trusts and the wider public will be necessary.

The role will involve office and remote working and collaboration with colleagues across different divisions of the organisations. This may include a degree of evening and weekend working on occasion and attendance at events as a representative of Fish Legal.

Fish Legal are a not-for-profit membership association which promotes and encourages the conservation and sustainable management of UK rivers, stillwaters and coastal waters and the role of angling within this. It uses the law to fight pollution and other damage and threats to the water environment on behalf of anglers, consistent with these objectives.  It is united in a collaborative relationship with the Angling Trust, a representative body for anglers and angling in England and Wales.  They are recognised by Sport England as the National Governing Body for angling and work in partnership with Natural Resources Wales and Visit Wales to deliver the Fishing in Wales programme.
