Paul Amadi, director of fundraising at the NSPCC, will leave this month to take up the same role at Diabetes UK.

Amadi, the former chair of the Institute of Fundraising, joined the NSPCC in January 2010. He stepped down as IoF chair at the end of 2010 after his appointment at the NSPCC.

Amadi, who will join Diabetes UK in January, told Third Sector he would look back on his time at the NSPCC fondly and that he was attracted by the potential to "energise" Diabetes UK’s fundraising.

"It’s got a relatively new chief executive in Baroness Barbara Young and I want to make sure fundraising will provide the catalyst for transformation that she has talked about at the organisation," he said. Young became chief executive of Diabetes UK in November 2010.

A spokesman for the NSPCC said that details of a recruitment process to replace Amadi would be revealed in due course. "We wish Paul every success in the future and thank him for his dedication and support to our organisation during the past two years," he said.
