We are the official charity of NHS Lothian and the only charity that is dedicated to supporting all its work, all its people and all the families and individuals it cares for.

From the everyday to the transformational, we support NHS Lothian to excel for all its communities; whether that’s patients, their families, staff or communities. From prevention and early intervention, to treatment and recovery, from birth to end of life care, we provide support throughout the full healthcare journey and across all health conditions. By enhancing experiences and environments for patients and staff, investing in research and innovation, and helping to progress better health outcomes for all our communities, we play a key role in improving physical and mental health and wellbeing for everyone.

Our expertise and experience, and the support we provide help create opportunities that enable NHS Lothian to foster innovation, explore ideas and transform healthcare.

As an independent but integral part of NHS Lothian, we are able to tap in directly to what support is needed to make the biggest difference.

We are looking for an experienced Trusts Officer who is passionate about fundraising to support our patients, their families, and our NHS Lothian colleagues.

You will be a skilled relationship manager who can work alongside our Programmes team and NHS colleagues to identify fundable projects and to develop these into successful applications. With excellent communications skills you will have the ability to interpret complex and technical information into lay terms.

You will have a working knowledge of the Scottish funding landscape with the ability to undertake research and develop relationships with key funders.  Your planning abilities will help you create funding pipelines and reporting timelines for restricted income.

As an NHS Charity we have seen a significant growth in our awareness and supporter base over the last three years.  We are at the beginning of our journey as a fundraising organisation and you will be excited about the opportunity to use your skills and experience to help further establish this role in the organisation.
