Job Description

We’re looking for an exceptional Events Fundraising Officer to help deliver our events fundraising strategy. This is a role with huge opportunity for impact at this exciting time of growth for Independent Age.

Over the past 10 years, Independent Age has been through a major transformation. We’ve moved from operating as a benevolent trust, to establishing ourselves as a charity that provides impact at scale, helping older people stay independent and live well. Last year, 1 million people accessed our services.

Our plan now is to significantly increase our number of supporters and service users, and to deepen our engagement with them. Key to our vision is our ability to maximise income from new and existing owned, bespoke and third-party events that deliver a long-term sustainable return. 

You’ll play an important role in achieving this, responsible for the operational delivery of Independent Age’s Events Fundraising strategy. As a member of the Events Fundraising team, you’ll support the delivery of a diverse events programme with a strong focus on third party and mass participation events.

You will work with the Senior Events Fundraising Manager to recruit, retain and reactivate events participants, ensuring the best possible supporter experience to maximise lifetime value.

You will have a track record of implementing successful Events Fundraising strategies, plans and diverse multi-channel events programmes.  You will be experienced in delivering outstanding supporter care, building long-term relationships and supporting participation and income growth.

Most importantly you’ll be inspired by this unique opportunity to harness the power of events fundraising to help more older people as the UK grows older. 

If this is you, we’d love to hear from you.

Closing date is 26th June 2019
