Head of Fundraising and Communications

The conservation and environmental challenges in the Galapagos Islands are great. We need to raise more funds in order to have a greater impact across our programme areas: conserving species, restoring habitats and driving sustainable solutions. We have a strong fundraising and communications team in place and have had some great achievements over the last five years. As our new Head of Fundraising and Communications you will play an integral role in taking the organisation to the next step. You will do this by creating an overarching fundraising and communications strategy, develop brand positioning, tone of voice and a clear case for support for GCT.
