Prospectus is delighted to be supporting Versus Arthritis in the search for a Individual Giving Officer (12-month FTC) to join their collaborative fundraising team.
Versus Arthritis are a leading UK charity who aim to support the 10 million people living with arthritis in the UK. Their ambition is to create a world that no longer tolerates arthritis - no longer dismisses it as inevitable, untreatable and unimportant. Fundraising plays a pivotal role in their work and is key to ensuring no-one has to tolerate living with the pain, fatigue and isolation of arthritis. With a new CEO leading the organisation, who has fundraising experience themselves, this is a truly exciting time to join and have a real impact within an ambitious organisation.
The Individual Giving Officer will primarily be responsible growing the organisation's community and contribution the community makes to improve the lives of people with arthritis. The role will work as part of an integrated engagement team building a large pool of people who know the organisations, share their values, and consider them worthy of support. You will be responsible for growing and retaining the number of individual giving supporters and will also be responsible for developing creative, engaging, and relevant content for difference audiences.
The selected candidate will have a good understanding of different audiences and their needs and motivations. You will work independently and manage a varied workload so good organisational skills and the ability to work under pressure are a must. The postholder will also have experience of engaging critically with creative concepts and plans across the team and share thoughts constructively, as well as experience of developing and delivering successful campaigns for different channels.
