Edward Tait

Director of Fundraising, ActionAid


I was delighted to be part of the team that won two Third Sector Excellence Awards last year and can't wait to see the nominations for this year.
Earlier this year I joined the international development charity ActionAid UK as the Director of Fundraising. I am a values-based fundraiser, who believes passionately in the cause and the organisation I work for. Before joining ActionAid, I spent 15 years at the UK homelessness charity Crisis in roles spanning supporter appeals, supporter services and legacy and philanthropy fundraising, before becoming their Director of Fundraising in 2012.
I have always wanted to work for an international NGO and have admired ActionAid in particular for the way in which it combines direct work on the ground with a campaigning and influencing role; I am particularly excited to have joined ActionAid now as it embarks on an exciting new strategy to focus on the rights of women and girls.
