Our Mission is to end the exploitation of animals and with the help of our supporters, every day we are making massive wins for thousands of animals.


SAFE is recruiting for a general Fundraising Manager who will help our Fundraising Team to inspire and attract individuals to engage with SAFE and to help continue to build lifelong relationships with supporters.


Your passion will be for fundraising including working to deliver against financial targets and achieving growth year on year through continual improvement.
