An environmental charity is looking to appoint an enthusiastic fundraiser who has the relevant experience to help them attract new supporters to the cause and grow income from existing programmes.

As one of two Individual Giving Officers within a small, experienced team, you will help to develop and deliver a varied direct marketing programme to generate income from individual supporters. As such, you can expect to be responsible for planning and delivering activities across diverse income streams, including cash, digital, regular giving, membership and raffle.

You will report to the Individual Giving Manager and be part of the wider Income Generation team, which comprises Individual Giving, Supporter Care and Development and Community and Events.

The charity is looking for someone with a real passion, energy and aptitude for creating compelling fundraising stories, working with external creative partners to translate these into effective communications and supporter journeys. You will need to have experience of tailoring messages to suit different audiences so that you can help engage new supporters, as well as steward and grow income from existing audiences.

You will also need to be numerate and confident working with data, with the know-how to devise robust tests, draft accurate data briefs, and help deliver insightful 'end of campaign' evaluation reports.

The successful candidate will therefore need previous charity fundraising experience, be highly organised and have a proven track record in project managing direct marketing activities across a range of channels, including digital and social media. In line with our objectives, ideally your experience will include supporter acquisition as well as retention, with knowledge of new product/offer development and implementation of 'test and learn' programmes.
