Harris Hill are delighted to be supporting FareShare in their search for a brand new Individual Giving Officer. 

Hunger is a growing issue in the UK and while there is surplus food that is otherwise going to waste, FareShare believe that this food should be used to feed people first. The UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, they take good quality food surplus and get it to almost 11,000 frontline charities and community groups. During 2020, they redistributed 113 million meals, reaching over 1 million people.

With the COVID19 pandemic shining a light on the issue of food insecurity in the UK the organisations work has never been more vital. The increase in awareness and significance has seen FareShare benefit from the support of major retailers, the media, sports ambassadors and a groundswell of public engagement. Its fundraising team has also seen incredible growth in support over the past 12 months across Corporate Fundraising, Individual Giving, and Trusts & Foundations. As a result there has never been a more exciting time to join an organisation at the heart of public consciousness!

With this large increase in demand FareShare are now looking for a proven Individual Giving fundraiser or direct marketer to join them as they embark on their next phase of income generation and supporter development following a successful few months of growth.

This new role will:

  • Support the delivery and management of Fareshare’s ambitious supporter recruitment and retention programme.
  • Work with the Individual Giving Manager and wider fundraising team on campaigns, manging certain projects from inception to completion.
  • Drive innovation and a digital first approach in Individual Giving.
  • Take a proactive role in Supporter stewardship
  • Develop in Memoriam and In Celebration giving

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Experience of Individual Giving or direct marketing project management
  •  Experience of fundraising via digital channels
  • Experience of supporter (or customer) care
  • Experience of using a fundraising database
  • Working knowledge of the regulatory environment from individuals including data protection, Gift Aid and fundraising code of practice and regulation

This is an excellent opportunity to join an impressive organisation at the infancy of the Individual Giving and help shape and develop the programme into something amazing!
