As a Community Fundraising Executive in CAFOD’s Supporter Fundraising section, you will be responsible for promoting CAFOD’s fundraising initiatives to Catholic community groups – focusing on parishes. The post is fundamental to inspiring support and building lasting relationships between CAFOD and these audiences.
The Community Fundraising team is responsible for the continuing development of CAFOD’s community and parish fundraising programme through mailings, paid advertising and digital channels and the engagement of an extensive network of local volunteers. This includes both Family Fast Day appeals, other parish fundraising schemes and emergency appeals.
We are looking for a passionate fundraiser with a can-do attitude who has experience managing multiple deadlines simultaneously and working with a range of stakeholders. Working day to day without supervision, you will be expected to resolve everyday challenges and obstacles independently. You will be confident making creative and data-led recommendations and have the ability to inspire a faith-based audience to support our work.
The post is based within the Community Fundraising team and reports to the Community Fundraising Manager. The post holder will also need to build excellent working relationships with other teams across CAFOD – especially those in Supporter Fundraising, Theology, Communications, Supporter Care, Donations Processing and Regional Teams.
The contract for this role is for nine months. However, there is a possibility this could be extended. We are very committed to the development of our Community Fundraising Programme and over the next year will identify the shape and focus of roles in the team, longer term, to support an ambitious fundraising strategy.
