Job description


Refuge is the UK’s largest provider of specialist services for victims of all forms of gender-based violence (domestic, sexual, so called ‘honour’ violence, modern slavery and human trafficking, prostitution, forced marriage, stalking and FGM). Every day we support over 6,500 women and children in our national network of services.  These include Independent Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence Advocacy services (IDVAs/ISVAs and IGVAs), community outreach, specialist refuge accommodation, sanctuary services, culturally-specific services and the Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline. We advise Government and lobby hard to keep violence against women and girls high on the public agenda. We run award-winning prevention and public education campaigns, manage a busy press office and website, and we are an accredited training provider. We give a voice to the voiceless.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated individual who prides themselves on their accuracy, attention to detail and knack for being able to oversee the day to day management of a CRM system or database. We need a team player who can support a wide variety of projects, liaising with different team members throughout the working day. The post will join the passionate and dynamic fundraising team at Refuge, and support the goal of creating a world where violence against women and girls (VAWG) is not tolerated.

As Senior Fundraising Database Executive, you will be responsible for providing day-to-day support to the fundraising team with database processes, training and development.

In this role you will also support fundraisers to fully understand their objectives and requirements with their data requirements for appeals, communications with supporters or events. You will play a key part in unlocking opportunities across our fundraising portfolio.

You will be driven and self-motivated, comfortable making decisions within agreed delegation levels. You will be able to work as part of the wider fundraising team and have the ability to work under pressure. This is an exciting opportunity for the right individual, being part of a new strategy and with personal development built in.

All candidates must demonstrate a commitment to the feminist values of empowerment and equality which underpin all of our work. Successful applicants will be expected to work within Refuge’s Values and Behaviour Framework and demonstrate these in their everyday work.
