5Rights is looking for a new Head of UK Advocacy to advance the organisation’s policy leadership and secure impact with our target audiences – in the UK and internationally.

In this role, you will drive work in the UK towards a digital world that has children’s rights at its heart. You will develop and deliver advocacy strategies in collaboration with our policy and comms teams to represent and advance 5Rights’ positions and mission in the UK.

Job Description –Supporter Acquisition Manager (Individual Giving)
Reporting to: Senior Manager (Individual Giving)
Location: Hybrid / Office Based
Hours: 35 Hours
FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. Together, we take good quality surplus food from right across the food industry and get it to almost 10,000 frontline charities and community groups. During 2021, we redistributed 127 million meals, the equivalent of 4 meals every second through our FareShare Regional Centres and our retail surplus model FareShare Go, reaching over 1 million people.
FareShare exists because of two hugely important and highly topical issues.
As a consequence of supply and demand, huge volumes of food are grown or made in the UK and a small percentage ends up as unwanted surplus with little commercial value.
At the same time, there are many thousands of frontline community groups and charities that are providing a vital safety net for the most vulnerable in our society. We seek to squeeze as much social good out of that uneconomic surplus by getting it to almost 10,000 such groups across the UK whilst they provide essential wraparound support services for their beneficiaries.
The Cost of Living Crisis and before it, the COVID-19 have shone a spotlight on the issue of food insecurity in the UK and with it, FareShare’s ability to get food to vulnerable communities nationwide.
It is estimated that over 4.7m UK households are now experiencing food insecurity and whilst the equivalent of 1.3bn meals of good surplus food occurs each year, FareShare believes that it is wrong for these two situations to co-exist.
To combat this, FareShare is moving into an ambitious 4 year programme to achieve
unparalleled growth in both our food volumes as well as our
fundraised income. We are driven by the opportunity to secure even more of the food available at farm gate, manufacturing and retail levels and to do this, we
need to maximise our new groundswell of public support to generate the funds needed to operate at this greater scale. There has never been a more
exciting time to join a relevant organisation which delivers both social and environmental impact, at such a crucial time.
By joining us you would be leading some of our most important work in helping us generate more support from Donors, Corporate Food and Fundraising Partners, Foundations and Volunteers as we strive in our ambition to meet the demand for food
to support the UK’s most vulnerable.
FareShare’s Strategy & Vision
Vision: We have the vision of a UK where “No good food goes to waste”.
Mission: To use surplus, fit for consumption, food to feed those who are vulnerable in the UK by supporting front line charitable organisations that tackle the cause and not just the symptoms of food poverty.
Our Purpose: We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.
Our Values: Passion – for our cause and the challenge that lies ahead
Ambition – to go the extra mile and drive the change that must happen
Respect – for ourselves, each other, our volunteers, our partners and our beneficiaries
Collaboration – it’s only by working with others that we can be stronger
Focus – on providing the best service possible so that we deliver and
achieve the most for our clients/customers.

This is an exciting time to join Muscular Dystrophy Support Centre (MDSC) as Head of Fundraising! We are a small charity that is looking to grow and is ambitious to increase our impact. We are a dynamic, supportive and committed team, and we offer a flexible working environment.
MDSC’s mission is to transform access to physical therapies for people with muscular dystrophy (MD) in the Midlands. Established in 2012, MDSC was set up and led by people with, or affected by, MD. From our main centre in Coventry, and with satellite clinics in Birmingham, the Black Country, and Leicester, we currently support over 450 adults with MD, by providing specialist physiotherapy, osteopathy and complementary therapies on a long-term basis. We are the only organisation in the Midlands region to do so, and one of only two in the UK.
In 2019 MDSC received monies from the National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) underpinning our 5-year strategy to increase our service user numbers and therapy hours offered. By 2025 we plan to be supporting over 1,100 people with MD and be providing therapy at two more satellite clinics in Worcestershire and Northamptonshire – improving access for people with MD in the Midlands to vital therapies that enable them to live well with their condition.
We currently receive around 37% of our income from NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (charitable activities income) and the remainder is voluntary income which the postholder will be responsible for (35% is from trusts and foundations, 19% from NLCF and the balance from service user donations / community fundraising).
The role of Head of Fundraising is a key leadership position, and its purpose is to inspire others and generate income. With the support of everyone within the Charity the post holder will be championed to meet income targets that will enable us to enhance and expand our services over the coming years.
This role would be great for an established Head of Fundraising, or a candidate who has deep trusts and foundations experience and who would like to build on and diversify their fundraising skills base, enhancing/ developing their leadership capabilities.

About the Role
Population Matters has grown its team and ambitions significantly in the last few years and, as a small, primarily virtual organisation with global aspirations, a well-managed and utilised CRM database is key to helping to make our vision a reality.
We are looking for a CRM and Engagement Officer to work closely with the Head of Fundraising and Engagement and our external contractor to ensure that our database and how we use it helps support our strategic objectives and provides a positive experience for members, donors and a wider group of external stakeholders. This is a hands-on role with lots of opportunities to use your initiative and be creative in thinking about new solutions to problems.
Reporting to the Head of Fundraising and Engagement, you will champion CiviCRM across the organisation and ensure it’s utilised to its fullest potential, including supporting and training new and existing users. You will be responsible for liaising with our external contractor to improve, develop and implement functions that will enhance our processes and take the lead on maintaining accurate and up-to-date records and general database upkeep.
You will be passionate about the ways in which a CRM system can underpin a charity’s work and be excited about using ours to help achieve Population Matters’ vision of a better future for everyone. You will be interested, curious and committed to learning new technical skills as well as being able to speak clearly and plainly with all team members who might not have your expertise. Beyond the administrative function, a key part of the role will be to understand the aims of the organisation and individual team members, helping them use the CRM and associated technologies in support of those aims.
You’ll have previous experience of working with donor management/customer relationship databases (preferably CiviCRM), have a proactive approach to data quality and be confident in your technical abilities that will enable you to work independently as well as contribute your skills to the team. You will be a team player who is able to build effective working relationships with all colleagues and contractors, becoming the ‘go to’ person for all things CRM.
Population Matters primarily works as a virtual organisation so this role is home-based for the majority, but close proximity to our London office is preferred.
Population Matters (PM) is a UK-based charity working globally to achieve a sustainable future for people and planet.
Our Vision is a future in which a stable human population co-exists in harmony with nature and prospers on a healthy planet, to the benefit of all.
Our Mission is to drive positive, large-scale action through fostering choices that help achieve a sustainable human population and regenerate our environment.
Our Approach is to campaign, inform, lobby, undertake research and do all we can to encourage an open, fair-minded and constructive debate about population. We promote positive, practical, ethical solutions – encouraging smaller families, inspiring people to consume sustainably, with the aim of enabling everyone to enjoy a decent quality of life whilst respecting and sustaining the natural ecosystems upon which all life on earth depends.
We believe everyone should have the freedom and ability to choose a smaller family. All our work is informed and guided by our commitments to human rights, women’s empowerment and global justice.
Population Matters has a London office near Waterloo in which you are welcome to work, or you may choose to work from home. Most of the team work from home for the majority with frequent online catch-ups and face-to-face team and other ad-hoc meetings at our office on a semi-regular basis.
For this role, if you choose to be primarily home-based you will still need to commit to regular office visits to access, open and process post i.e. cheques and other donations.
