Job description

Overall Purpose of Job

The Marfan Trust requires an experienced fundraiser with strong marketing and communications skills to develop, implement and manage an income generation and awareness raising strategy for the Trust across all communications media, including events. The strategy will be aimed at individual supporters, Corporates, HNWI’s (High Net Worth Individuals), Trusts and Foundations so that the Trust can meet annual and longer term fundraising targets in order to find better treatment for Marfan syndrome, while educating patients, doctors and the public about this potentially fatal heart disease.

The role will include supporter acquisition and retention of our 5,000 strong supporter database, as well as developing and increasing income opportunities and engagement from new and existing supporters and donors. The incumbent will also enable the Trust to become a membership organisation.

The post supports the chairman and trustees of this small national charitable organisation and is based at National Heart and Lung Institute, Guy Scadding Building, London SW3 6LY, where the leading UK clinical and research centre for Marfan syndrome is based, under the direction of Medical Director, Dr Anne Child.

The Marfan Trust

The Marfan Trust is the only Marfan charity in the UK that funds its own laboratory undertaking medical and analytical research so that more is known about Marfan syndrome and its management. The results of the Trust’s internationally recognised research enable doctors and surgeons to provide better treatment for patients in the short and long term. Over 18,000 people are affected by Marfan syndrome in the UK, with many more anticipated to be living with the condition undiagnosed. Our important work hopes to improve the treatment of patients and increase awareness of this condition. For more information, visit our website.

This is a very exciting time to join the Marfan Trust as it has recently moved offices and merged with another Marfan Charity and is looking to develop a new fundraising strategy for the enlarged Trust in which the Fundraising Manager will be instrumental in developing and launching.

Scope of the Role

The Fundraising Manager will work closely with Fundraising Administrator, scientific staff, patients, donors and the rest of the small Marfan Trust team to develop the scope of the Marfan Trust and increase income generation and awareness. The post holder is also expected to build strong relationships with all stakeholders. The Fundraising Manager will also be creative and have exceptional relationship management, sales, marketing and communications skills and be adept at copy writing, managing website content, databases, email systems and social media.

This position offers the opportunity to be an integral part of a new team, and to make a real impact on the charity’s work.

Some travel will be involved in fundraising events and some evening work is required to attend trustee meetings and fundraising functions. Chairman and trustees of the Trust are all affected with the condition, and medical training regarding Marfan syndrome and required terminology for communications will be provided.

· Develop and implement a new overall income generating, fundraising and communications strategy for the Trust in collaboration with the team which will include events and transforming the Trust to a membership organisation

· Plan, write, implement and monitor fundraising and awareness-raising initiatives across all platforms and media

· Update and manage the Trust’s social media platforms

· Provide empathetic supporter care to donors, patients and all stakeholders on the phone, in writing and in person
