BACKGROUND: Make-A-Wish Ireland has one simple aim – to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to bring hope, strength and happiness.

All of our children are living with life-threatening medical conditions and their lives are turned upside down as the focus is on hospital visits, injections, treatment and the illness. Make-A-Wish believes that every child deserves to be happy and by taking their one true wish and transforming it into reality, happy memories are created for not only the wish child but their loved ones. Since 1992, Make-A-Wish has granted wishes for more than 2,250 brave children across Ireland, including 221 wishes granted in 2017 alone.

The successful candidate will have a track-record building effective, sustainable relationships with high net worth individuals and corporates, as well as experience of delivering results through others, getting the best out of people and driving performance excellence.

• Significant experience in corporate fundraising, CSR, or senior level corporate communications • A passion for networking, relationship building and selling • Proven experience leading and motivating a team • A warm, positive attitude, excellent interpersonal skills and a collaborative working style • An innovative, can-do attitude with willingness to work flexibly including out of hours • Flexible, ambitious, hungry for growth and passionate about the work of Make-A-Wish

Passion is essential for this role. The ideal candidate will be someone who thrives under pressure and is driven to beat income targets. You will be a natural relationship builder who is able to bring their gravitas to influence at a senior level.
