Job description

Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. We all share it. And it drives our Fundraising team to get out there and bring in the funds we need to protect children and prevent abuse. Join us as a Prospect Development Officer, and get more people involved in change that means everything. Fundraising underpins our commitment to vulnerable children across the country, and our generous supporters account for almost 90% of the NSPCC’s annual income.

As a part of the Supporter Management Team, the Prospect Development Officer plays a key role in identifying and building relationships with our future high value supporters. An analytical mind and strong communication skills see the role supporting colleagues across high value fundraising by both identifying new business leads; and by helping to cultivate successful supporter relationships through donor insight.

The Supporter Management Team was created to steward and grow the NSPCC’s high value audience, with dedicated functions in Engagement & Stewardship, High Value Comms, Due Diligence, and Prospect Research & Bid Co-Ordination – where this role sits. The role works alongside another Prospect Development Officer, a Senior Prospect Development Manager, and the Bid Co-Ordination Manager.

Through effective interpersonal and communication skills, as well as a keen eye for detail and an ability to synthesise complex information, the post holder will serve a key role in pro-actively identifying new business leads, as well as responding to reactive information requests from colleagues across fundraising teams working with individual donors, charitable trusts and foundations, and corporate partners.

Join us and you’ll become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You’ll discover opportunities to grow, along with challenges and a shared purpose that’ll bring the best out in you. And you’ll get to find your own way to make a difference that means more, and that impacts millions of young lives.

A background in prospect research or high value fundraising is desirable, but not necessary for someone interested in this position.
