A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

About the Role
Our Major Donor programme has increased its annual income by almost 200% in five years and now has a pool of donors who give regularly through recurring gifts or cash donations. Your challenge will be to steward this pool to ensure that they continue to give, and to identify opportunities to uplift donors wherever possible. This will involve regular mailings, bespoke reporting on areas of interest, additional materials such as cards and books and one-off personalised opportunities. And, when you're not busy designing, delivering and managing a first class stewardship programme, we’ll rely on you to support the Major Donor team by providing effective administrative support.
A great opportunity to join a truly high-performing Major Donor team, you’ll need to be able to write clear, compelling reports/materials to effectively communicate Shelter’s work to prospective donors. You’ll also need strong administrative skills, including the ability to work to multiple deadlines and juggle a variety of projects.

Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no-one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business. Shelter is committed to protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of those we support, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. All our staff will be expected to observe professional standards of behaviour and conduct their work in line with our Safeguarding Policies.
