Database Officer

London Permanent
28,000 plus generous benefits package

We're committed to improving the welfare of working animals, but we firmly believe in looking after our people properly too. So while we're a small charity (in terms of numbers, but certainly not in ambition or reach!) we have one of the most extensive benefits packages in the sector, providing real support for our staff and helping to make this a fantastic place to work.

This includes many of the things you might expect like discounted gym membership, an optional private healthcare scheme, childcare vouchers, eyecare vouchers and a cycle to work scheme but also a full employee assistance programme, a superb employer-contributory pension scheme where we make a 10% contribution for every 5% of your own, and we've even partnered with a local lettings agency to provide significant staff discounts on fees and cut the costs of renting.

There are plenty of other great reasons to join us though, like our professional but positive, friendly and supportive culture where everyone pulls together to help each other out when needed, whatever their day-to-day role. We're a small organisation with a strong team work ethic, so while you'll only need experience in the areas covered in the job description below, over time you're likely to find yourself getting involved in much more besides, broadening your experience all the time and bringing plenty of variety to your role.

It's also thanks to being a smaller organisation that you won't be boxed into a long-established position where everything's set in stone. All of our roles and remits evolve in line with the needs of the organisation and the strengths of our people, so if you'd relish the challenge of shaping your role as you progress, regularly taking on new and different tasks, you'll feel right at home here.

Key responsibilities include:

The Database Officer is responsible for supporting the charity's database operations, including ensuring all income received is accurately and promptly processed; helping to maintain the database to ensure data quality; assisting with data selections; and generally assisting Fundraising teams with their data requirements. There is great scope for developing wider skills and knowledge in assisting the database team with fundraising data selections, and helping to shape policy and procedure.

Who we're looking for:

You'll be an excellent communicator and have experience of working with Raiser's Edge (including imports, exports, and queries).

The successful candidate would have experience of database administration ideally within a fundraising environment. Being able to deal with with external agencies such as mailing houses and data management companies. You must have knowledge and experience of data cleaning, selections, segmentation and working knowledge of Import-o-Matic
