The role seeks to develop JRS UK’s individual giving portfolio UK, 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 and Development Officer will be responsible for the end-to-end delivery of individual giving activity across a range of channels and for recruiting, stewarding and retaining supporters of JRS UK.
The Fundraising and Development Officer will need prior experience of creating and delivering successful campaigns to grow income, utilising both traditional and digital techniques. Excellent communication skills and the ability to speak and communicate confidently to supporters is essential.
This role comes at an exciting time in JRS UK’s history as the organisation looks to increase awareness of its work, with ambitious plans to grow voluntary income. The Fundraising and Development Officer 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.
