Groundwork East is in an exciting stage of growth and change. With a turnover of £3.5 million and 70 staff, we are in a strong position to build on our achievements so far. 

The Development & Fundraising Manager post is a crucial role working to drive forward the Trust’s fundraising and development strategies.
