The role

Concerned about the climate emergency? Keen to use your fundraising expertise to protect the planet for future generations? 

We are looking for an experienced and inspired fundraiser to manage our Individual Giving supporter recruitment programme. As IG Supporter Recruitment Manager you will manage the programme, leading the development and implementation of the strategy to maximise the value of our donor recruitment activity.

This role requires a confident fundraiser with a solid grasp of all supporter recruitment channels and an understanding of retention and development channels. You’ll need a track record of successful recruitment fundraising from individuals or in cold direct marketing within the commercial sector, as well as experience of driving effective direct marketing 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 campaign teams to create compelling and integrated plans. 

Each Individual Giving Officer manages a selection of projects across recruitment and experience, rotating many on an annual basis as agreed across the team. The IG Supporter Recruitment Manager line-manages two Individual Giving Officers and project sponsors all Supporter Recruitment projects.
