Legacy and In Memoriam Adviser – Scotland

Do you have the appetite to help change the face of legacy giving working directly with some of our client's highest value supporters?

Legacies (gifts left to our client in supporters' Wills) contributed around £36m to the organisation last year - that's nearly a third of their net income. Along with their in memoriam giving income (gifts given to the the charity in memory of a loved one) they believe that this can grow exponentially. This is where you come in.
