We act because everyone relies on the ocean to survive - from the air we breathe to the food we eat. We have ambitious plans to drive political, cultural and social change for healthy seas and coasts that support abundant marine wildlife, sustain livelihoods and provide enjoyment for all. 

To make these changes possible, we need to grow our income from existing and new partnerships – if you’re a successful and motivated Major Donor Fundraising Manager, you can play a key part in the continuation of this important work with us at MCS.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a driven and motivated individual to make your mark as part of a successful fundraising team in a charity with big ambitions and strong influence.  We want to hear from you if you have the contacts and commitment to drive our work forward.
