Job description

Permanent, 35 hours per week, full time. We offer hybrid working with the option to discuss flexible and compressed hours.  You would be expected to work on site at the Home for at least one day per week, with the option of remote work for the rest of the week.

 At Edinburgh Dog & Cat Home, love has no limits. We take a big picture view of what is best for dogs and cats; and a tireless, long-term approach to their care. In addition, we strive to create a safe and nurturing environment not only to the animals, but also our people. Our mission is to protect loving homes, find loving homes and run a loving Home.

We are delighted to be recruiting for the newly created role of Legacy Officer in the Home’s Fundraising Team.

As a Legacy Officer you will play a pivotal part in growing this important source of income which comprises both legacy administration and legacy marketing. Legacies play a vital role at the Home, funding on average 1/3 of our annual income and you will support the implementation of a legacy strategy, aimed at growing income.

You will collaborate closely with the Legacy and Individual Giving Manager and Head of Fundraising to develop strategy and drive income growth, while delivering concise reports on key performance indicators. Your meticulous attention to detail will shine as you manage the day-to-day administration of our legacy caseload, handling complex gifts and resolving any issues. Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements will be second nature to you, as you ensure all funds are administered correctly in alignment with donors' wishes. Collaborating seamlessly with various teams, you'll ensure smooth operations, accurate record-keeping, and insightful analysis. Leveraging your marketing prowess, you'll engage with stakeholders, cultivate relationships, and develop innovative approaches to boost supporter loyalty and engagement.

We're looking for someone with expertise in Microsoft packages, estate administration, and CRM databases. You should excel in building relationships, delivering supporter communications, and assessing legacy activities. Strong communication, research, and numeracy skills are essential, along with a knack for relationship management and attention to detail. A positive attitude, diplomacy, and adaptability are also vital.

If you're passionate about animal welfare, ready to make a lasting impact and drive our legacy programme to new heights, we invite you to apply and be part of our dynamic team!
