It’s an exciting time to join the RNIB challenge events team, as we’ve grown significantly over the last 3 years and have ambitious plans to continue to grow. We are a small, friendly and ambitious team, with a genuine passion for delivering amazing challenge events and smashing the barriers faced by people with sight loss.

If you are a people person with a passion for fundraising, excellent communication and organisational skills, and a love of data, this is a brilliant opportunity to join our team and support the growth of our challenge events fundraising programme.

This role will support the delivery of our challenge events, with project management responsibilities across our general running and open challenge programmes, leading a strategy to grow these areas and maximise supporter engagement and fundraising.

The role will be a key point of contact across all our events, leading on the delivery of the stewardship and engagement strategy for our bespoke trekking series, as well as supporting stewardship for both our new bespoke event RNIB Double Dash and London Marathon.

The role will ensure supporter engagement and fundraising levels are maximised, outstanding levels of supporter care are delivered, and long-term relationships are cultivated. Critical to the success of this will be managing supporter data and insight to ensure we understand our supporters and know the best way to engage them.

The role will also engage key internal stakeholders to support the success and growth of challenge events at RNIB, sharing the stories and successes of challenge events across the organisation, and ensuring staff and volunteers across RNIB are highly engaged with our challenge events fundraising programme.

In exchange we offer a competitive salary, a stimulating and supportive working environment and a benefits package including:

  • 26 days holiday per year (plus bank holidays), which increase with service
  • Excellent pension schemes

We’re the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and we’re here for everyone affected by sight loss. Working for us means working for one of the UK’s biggest charities, supporting almost two million people living with sight loss in the UK.

RNIB is committed to being led by our customers (blind and partially sighted people), and one of the ways we do this is through active involvement and engagement in many of our work activities, including the recruitment of new members of staff.

Please be aware that blind and partially sighted volunteers may be involved in the recruitment and selection process for this vacancy; including reviewing job applications and CV’s, shortlisting and interviews and selection tests.

RNIB is committed to being an Equal Opportunities organisation and we welcome applications from people with sight loss.
