Job description

Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society will be here for anyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by them.

We are the UK's leading dementia charity. Every day, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need our help. And we are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.

Fundraising Development Officer Responsibilities:

The best bits!

• Flexing your excellent research skills, supporting an ambitious team of high value fundraisers to achieve their strategic goals.
• Working on strategic projects including developing and delivering prospecting strategies.
• Working with incredible colleagues passionate about making a difference and giving our supporters the best experience possible.

Your main responsibility will be working with High Value teams to complete high quality research, plans and network maps to deliver outstanding prospect acquisition and intuitive supporter journeys.

Flexing your attention to detail and methodical acumen you will streamline and evaluate our processes and procedures (including wealth-screening & data protection). Sitting as part of our Impact Communications team, you will work together to become an expert on the work of Alzheimer’s Society, ensuring we are consistently spotting the most current & exciting opportunities to further our fundraising ambitions.

Fundraising Development Officer Requirements:

Are you an excellent communicator with an analytical brain looking for a new challenge? Do you have great prioritisation skills and feel comfortable using your initiative to problem solve in a fast paced environment? You will be an experienced prospect researcher looking to broaden your skillset, who regularly asks – “how can we do this better?” You may be a fundraiser with a passion for horizon scanning and research looking to hone your technical skillset; or you could be someone who fits this description:

• You will share your knowledge, experience, and expertise through your excellent network of internal relationships.
• You will be innovative, but detail orientated, and be able to present complicated information to a range of audiences.
• You will be motivated by delivering truly transformational positive impacts for those affected by dementia, and you will learn how to weave this pivotal impact into every piece of work.

As a successful Prospect Development Officer at Alzheimer’s Society, you will work on an exciting variety of projects and with a broad range of internal stakeholders. You will have the opportunity to learn from a diverse array of fundraisers – including corporate, philanthropy, trusts, foundations, and communications experts. The role will be a fantastic opportunity to enhance your technical skillset, using news aggregations tools, CRM databases and other software to build high quality research outputs. Working as part of a close knit but geographically dispersed team, there will be regular opportunities to discuss professional strengths and development needs, learning from peers and leadership teams alike. The successful candidate will be encouraged to pursue project work playing to their strengths, as well as benefit from robust development plans to support areas for further upskilling. If you feel professionally fulfilled by becoming a subject matter expert and deploying this alongside your technical skills to achieve ambitious income and supporter experience targets- this is the role for you!
