Job description

Are you a dynamic fundraising leader with a talent of developing new relationships and creating new sustainable sources of income?

Now-u is a non-profit website and app, launched in July 2020 with a mission to inform, involve and inspire people to help tackle some of the world's most pressing environmental and social problems related to i) human rights and welfare, ii) protecting the world around us, and iii) preserving our species and the planet.

Some of our past campaigns:

  • Promoting Zero Waste
  • Tackling modern slavery across the globe
  • Improving disability equality in the UK
  • Improving mental health in the UK
  • Supporting people facing homelessness in the UK

Through promotion we also engage with users of our app and website. By giving people actionable opportunities to help further the cause of our chosen campaigns (i.e. donating to certain charities, writing to your local MP, links to sign petitions), we work to create an engaging space whereby anyone can help contribute and tackle some of the challenges we face today.

How we create a campaign:

  • The team looks at what issues would be best to tackle for a particular month
  • It considers multiple factors: Recent developments impacting charitable causes, public and media attention, upcoming parliamentary debates and more
  • We prepare a proposal for the campaign, gathering info, learning materials and suggested actions to complete
  • We then reach out to charities and social enterprises to work with us
  • They suggest improvements, and propose actions to support their work
  • We prepare all these materials to be presented in accessible and engaging ways on the app
  • We use other supporting materials like campaign videos, blog articles and social media

The difference you will make in this role

We are seeking an experienced senior fundraiser manager to join our team and lead in the development and delivery of our new fundraising strategy.

This is a new role where you would be instrumental in increasing our supporter base to provide us with an income to grow. 

The ideal person would bring leadership and management experience and have a track record in strategy development, budgets, working to target and KPIs.

Working independently you would:

  • Action a fundraising strategy approved by the chief executive & senior leadership team.
  • Agree a departmental budget and work to achieve or exceed a fundraising target.
  • Co-ordinate and manage fundraising, comprising community, trust, corporate, major donor and digital fundraising, across the organisation.
  • Motivate a team of volunteers who engage in fundraising activities
  • Build relationships with charitable trusts, foundations and other institutional funders.
  • Lead funding applications with regards to charitable trusts, foundations, grants & competitions.
  • Develop a strategy to attract corporate partners/sponsors.
  • Prepare reports and give presentations on fundraising progress to the senior leadership team and the trustee board.

What are we looking for?

  • Excellent written and oral presentation skills: Head of fundraising needs to make regular presentations to trustees, senior managers or potential donors/sponsors and write winning fundraising applications.
  • Networking/Relationship Management skills: Head of fundraising will be called upon to represent the organisation to corporates & donors and persuade them that their cause is one they should contribute to.
  • Effective project management skills: Ability to lead and co-ordinate fundraising initiatives with the support of volunteers.
  • Digital skills: The organisation is centred around mobile/online technology and the Head of fundraising will need to be adept at using these technologies and be aware of their fundraising potential.
  • Innovation skills: Strong ideas about how to hit fundraising targets in this climate. 
  • Budget management skills: You need to be able to work effectively with limited resources.

Essential experience

  • Proven track record in developing and delivering fundraising strategies
  • Knowledge of good fundraising procedures for the voluntary sector
  • Knowledge of current fundraising guidelines and legislation
  • Proven ability in producing effective, and inspiring proposals and funding reports
