The cover feature of April's issue takes a long look at the barriers to entry for a career in fundraising. Over stringent and unnecessary recruitment requirements, lack of transparency in hiring processes, and poor professional development options have all deterred people from applying for jobs in the sector, especially those from underrepresented backgrounds. Campaigners are calling for change and some charities are leading the way.
Also in this issue there is a case study of London Wildlife Trust's traineeship scheme, and insight into the thinking behind The National Lottery Community Fund's £1.4m BAME-led Phoenix Fund.
The in-depth interview this issue is with CEO of Barnardo's, Javed Khan, who explains how he is coping with his "toughest year" yet in the job.
