JRS UK is looking to recruit an experienced Fundraising Manager on a full-time basis to develop and steward relationships with JRS supporters, with a particular focus on individual giving. You will work as part of the Communications and Outreach team, reporting to the Communications and Development Manager.
The role seeks to develop JRS UK’s individual giving portfolio, both through regular giving and one-off donations. This will involve acquiring new donors and working with the wider Communications and Outreach Team to develop an engaging donor journey, which encourages long-term support of JRS. The Fundraising Manager will be responsible for managing the end-to-end delivery of individual giving activity across a range of channels and for recruiting, stewarding and deepening support of JRS UK. The ideal candidate will enjoy getting to know people, understanding their motivations to support JRS UK – be this through financial giving, volunteering their time and skills, or through faith communities.
You will have prior experience of creating and delivering successful fundraising campaigns to grow income, utilising both traditional and digital techniques. Excellent communication skills and the ability to speak and communicate confidently is essential.
The Fundraising Manager will play a pivotal role in ensuring JRS UK diversifies and stabilises its income streams, ensuring the organisation can continue to accompany and support refugees and those who are forcibly displaced.
JRS UK aims to pay close attention to the experience of refugees it accompanies and all its external communications give priority to their voices, taking care to portray refugees as people with dignity, gifts, joys, hopes and sorrows. JRS UK fundraising activity fits within these broader ethical communications guidelines.
