Gordon Birrell

Relationship Manager

Prior to joining ChildFund in 2006, Gordon spent a lifetime working in sales and marketing for corporate organisations like Xerox and Sharp. He was also involved with conservation work specialising in the captive release of rare birds of prey. Now his spare time is spent with his wife and two children, and occasionally fly-fishing, gardening or painting. Gordon sponsors a girl in Kenya.

For many years at ChildFund I ran the face-to-face fundraising team which recruited child sponsors. This involved a great deal of travelling and nothing has changed in that regard as I now have the privilege of meeting people as a ChildFund Relationship Manager.

There are many highlights to working at ChildFund including meeting wonderful caring people and seeing the impact of our work on the lives of children, which I find incredibly inspiring.
