About Us

As the UK's largest charity care provider, MHA enables people to live later life well through the commitment of 7,000 colleagues and dedication of 4,000 volunteers. Through specialist care homes, thriving retirement living and vibrant community groups and befriending, we inspire the best care and wellbeing at every stage of later life.

We have an exciting opportunity for someone with a fundraising, marketing or customer service background to join MHA, a values-led charity for older people where you will make a difference to the lives of people every day.

About the role

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the MHA Fundraising department as the Legacy Marketing Assistant, reporting to the Legacy Manager.

As the Legacy Marketing Assistant, you will be a key member of the Legacy team at MHA. It is a wide-ranging role that will be crucial in making sure that the team meets their aim of increasing the number of legacy leads and pledgers, securing future income from gifts in Wills for the charity.

Your strong administration skills will enable you to assist the team in the delivery of the legacy fundraising programme, providing the high-quality administrative support that underpins all of the activities that are implemented. This will include providing excellent supporter care through all communication channels and being the first point of contact for legacy fundraising enquiries. This is not solely an administration role though and you will have opportunities to develop your marketing and fundraising skills through your involvement in a variety of activities such as events, appeals, digital marketing and internal communications.

There will also be opportunities to work on ad-hoc projects, collaborate with the wider Fundraising team, as well as other departments across the charity.

About you

With a proactive, high-energy and enthusiastic approach you will enjoy working as part of a team. You will have excellent communication skills, which you will use in building relationships with colleagues and with our supporters and service users, showing empathy and sensitivity at all times.

In addition to strong administration skills, and a keen attention to detail, you will have experience in planning and coordinating your own workload and enjoy taking on extra challenges such as ad hoc projects.

Why join?

You will be coming to an organisation with strong values, a highly supportive culture and a commitment to the safety and wellbeing of employees. You will also benefit from a great staff membership scheme which includes training, pension, life assurance, access to high street vouchers and lots more.

In addition, you will work alongside highly motivated colleagues in an environment of strong teamwork whilst also having fun. This is a hugely rewarding role and a career to be proud of where every day you will know you made a positive difference to the lives of older people.

Please note that interviews may take place prior to the advert closing as and when suitable applications are received. If a suitable candidate is appointed the role may close early, therefore please do not hesitate to submit your application.
