This is an exciting time to be joining Whizz-Kidz as we prepare to launch our new, ambitious strategic plan. 

The Events Fundraising Manager Maternity Cover role will be critical in delivering Whizz-Kidz’ well renowned supporter journey to #TeamWhizzKidz, our 500+ runner London Marathon team.

You will also inspire and motivate Whizz-Kidz supporters and their families, to not only have the experience of a lifetime but to also help us create opportunities to better support young wheelchair users.
