We have an incredible opportunity for an Individual Giving Manager to join our Fundraising Team. Please see below for more information on what just might be your future role.

A creative self-starter, you’ll also have the tenacity and skills to see a job through to completion. And you’ll be motivated by targets and KPIs and the challenge of growing the charity’s supporter numbers and income.
The role requires you to also be cost conscious and highly analytical, so you will have experience of database interrogation (including targeting and segmentation) testing strategies, and financial & data analysis.
About the Team
At Help for Heroes, we believe those who serve our country deserve support when they’re wounded. We help them and their families to recover and get on with their lives and we give them physical, psychological, career, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it.

About the Role
As our Individual Giving (IG) Manager, you will lead the charity’s recruitment and retention of individual financial supporters to ensure that ad-hoc and regular donations are received, and that long-term support is encouraged.
You will reinvigorate and grow our existing ad-hoc and regular giving products and programmes (such as seasonal appeals and payroll giving) and will look at trends and insight to identify potential new opportunities.
Through collaborative team working with colleagues, you will create activity plans that ensure this fundraising area is delivered in a timely and cost-conscious manner. And you will represent our supporters at all times, via the stories you share with them and in various working groups, such as the Editorial Group and Digital Comms group.
Responsibilities will include:
- Activity planning – the creation of annual IG plans along with the timings, budgets, tests and channel plans.
- Project delivery – collaborative working with colleagues, agencies and suppliers via timely meetings, briefing documents and project plans.
- Supporter engagement – a focus on providing supporters with targeted, relevant and timely information via the creation of appropriate supporter journeys and other engagement strategies.
