Closing date: 17th October 2021

This is your opportunity to join an incredibly successful, friendly and supportive team of fundraisers and play a significant role in delivering successful fundraising campaigns, while building strong relationships with key stakeholders, both internally and externally.

As a Direct Giving Fundraiser, a key part of your role will be project managing a number of retention and recruitment fundraising campaigns, specifically direct mail appeals supplemented with digital and TM activity. It's an exciting time to join the team as we are looking to expand and balance our portfolio further through more integrated campaigns to both improve supporter satisfaction and diversify revenue streams, as well as widening the team's knowledge and understanding of a variety of channels.

The role will include, but not limited to, reviewing creative and editing copy, managing campaign budgets, reporting on and analysing results and strategic thinking. While you will focus specifically on our cash appeals initially, this role is really varied working across prize-led products, the Mid-Value programme, our supporter newsletter, SMS campaigns, DRTV and more.

You may have had some experience in the charity sector or have worked previously in a results driven environment. More importantly than that, you are a motivated problem solver, looking to make a difference, eager to grow and expand your knowledge of direct marketing.

What we are looking for:

  • Someone who is results-driven and proactive, with a passion for the sector and Marie Curie's vision to create the best end of life experience for everyone within the UK
  • Friendly and supportive team player who enjoys collaboration and idea-generation
  • You will be eager to develop and refine your project management skills, with a desire to test new approaches and continually improve ways of working
  • Excellent time management and numerical skills with a keen eye for detail
  • A critical thinker who uses their analytical skills to dissect results and develop insights

What's in it for you:

  • Continued access to NHS Pension Scheme (subject to eligibility)
  • Marie Curie Group Personal Pension Scheme
  • Season ticket loan
  • Loan schemes for bikes; computers and satellite navigation systems
  • Continuous development
  • Industry leading training programmes
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Flexible Working
