  • Assisting in maintaining existing community fundraising relationships and helping to develop ideas to generate new partnerships with school and faith-based partners.

  • Assisting in maintaining existing relationships within Individual Giving channels (Regular giving, Fundraiser giving, Digital giving) to increase revenue.
  • Assisting in creating mini campaigns and helping to develop ideas to acquire new supporters.
  • Helping to develop an impressive stewardship journey and continuing to thank supporters to encourage repeat giving or participation.
  • Providing support to our Events & Partnership Manager by assisting in the planning and delivery for both WeSeeHope and supporter-led events such as networking events, golf days, the London Marathon and RideLondon, virtual challenges and the Hope Classic Rally.
  • Coordinating supporter visits to programmes in Southern and Eastern Africa, including: organising travel arrangements, liaising with travel partners, producing trip materials and liaising with attendees.

  • Experience of helping to plan and attending fundraising events would be desirable, as well as creating promotional emails and print materials.
