The Legacy and Supporter Relationship Fundraising Officer is a new position at the charity. Reporting to the Head of Fundraising, this role will be one of the first points of contact for supporters be it via phone, email or face-to-face. It is an exciting time to join the small but growing fundraising team at Glaucoma UK and this role will be fundamental in helping raise the funds needed to support our annual workplans and help us achieve our strategic goals.
There will be two main areas of focus in this busy and varied role: firstly, to help maximise the value of our legacies, through efficient administration, by being able to identify and highlight issues and opportunities and through effective legacy marketing. Legacies provide an essential income stream for the charity and are currently responsible for 75% of Glaucoma UKs annual income. The second focus is to provide outstanding stewardship to our donors and potential donors, helping to create a mutually supportive community and strengthening connections and engagement.
To be successful you will be organised with a positive approach to work and excellent communication skills. Experience of working in a fundraising environment is essential as well as a keen eye for detail, confidence in managing financial and other numerical information and a dedication to giving supporters the best possible experience of fundraising for Glaucoma UK. We are willing to support the right person to develop into an expert legacy and relationship fundraising professional.
The team largely work from home, but you would be expected to come to the Kent office around once a month for a face-to-face team meeting. You are, however, able to attend the office more frequently if you choose.
We can offer training and development opportunities, 21 days annual leave (pro rata) plus 3 days Christmas closure, up to 5% contributory pension, access to Benenden healthcare support and an Employee Assistance Programme.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
