You’ll be an Individual Giving Officer with good knowledge of direct marketing, experience of seizing opportunities to develop new products and nurturing new audiences – especially using digital channels. 

Friends of the Earth has big goals this year to ensure a green and fair recovery from the pandemic, as well as continuing our vital wider campaigning work. As an Individual Giving team, we’ve got really ambitious plans to fulfil those goals, and we need a fundraiser who’s passionate about fighting for people and planet to help us achieve them.

You’ll be confident in developing strong relationships with colleagues and suppliers, you’ll have delivered successful and compelling direct marketing campaigns from start to finish, ideally including telemarketing, print and digital. You’ll also be familiar with fundraising databases, contributing to strategy discussions, managing budgets, and drawing insight and learnings from data to make your campaigns more successful. 

The role is in the supportive and friendly Individual Giving (IG) team, which sits within the Fundraising directorate. The IG team consists of eight roles: 

Head of Individual Giving

Individual Giving Supporter Recruitment Manager 

Individual Giving Supporter Experience Manager

Our Individual Giving programme covers a diverse range of activities and direct marketing tactics. This includes Supporter Recruitment activity such as paid social, inserts and conversion emails as well as a testing programme for new activity. Our Supporter Experience programme includes cash appeals, upgrade, reactivation, supporter magazines, e-appeals and retention activity. The programme has evolved hugely over the past few years, with a big increase in our digital activity and collaboration with teams across the organisation (including campaigns, marketing, creative and digital) to create compelling and integrated plans. 

Each Individual Giving Officer has the opportunity to manage a selection of projects across both our recruitment and experience programmes, with project rotations on an annual basis as agreed across the team.
