Every year, thousands of supporters donate to Cats Protection in memory of a loved one – be that a cat loving person in their lives, or a beloved feline companion – and ensuring those supporters know their contributions to our work are a fitting tribute to their friend or family member is of the utmost importance to us.

This reason for giving has become even more significant over the last few years, and the organisation has taken great strides to respond to this accordingly. The role therefore not only has its own dedicated fundraising, marketing and supporter care responsibilities, but also leads work to establish how we recognise and honour those supporting in this way across other areas of the charity, and how we integrate alongside other related programmes within our Marketing and Income Generation Directorate.

You will define annual plans, budgets and KPI’s to grow the volume and value of supporters giving in memory of both beloved people and cats. You will have line management responsibility for an In Memory Officer, and as a team will be responsible for maximizing the value of current and future support through exemplary marketing and stewardship, innovative recognition, and seamless integration.

  • Significant experience in an In Memory fundraising role
  • Management of income and expenditure budgets
  • Considerable experience of commissioning and managing external agencies and consultants
  • Comfortable reporting and presenting to colleagues, senior management and external agencies
  • Experience of utilising in depth data analysis and segmentation for marketing purposes

What we can offer you

  • salary of up to £38,243.07 per annum plus excellent benefits
  • generous annual leave entitlement
  • contribution pension scheme
  • life assurance scheme
  • range of health benefits
  • Employee Assistance Programme
