The UK’s leading interfaith organisation is looking for a Freelance Fundraising Event Coordinator to help us achieve our vision of a world where diversity is celebrated.

This a very exciting time to join us. On 22 November last year, nearly 200 guests attended our first ever Gala Dinner. The evening was a great success, showcasing our programmes through speeches from beneficiaries and notable guest including Princess Badiya bint Hassan of Jordan and author Elif Shafak.
