How to apply
Do you have proven experience of managing Door-to-Door fundraising teams? Then join Shelter as a Door-to-Door Fundraising Manager and you could soon be training and retaining our London D2D fundraising team and ensuring in-house activity maximises net income for Shelter.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
About the role
Our fundraising division is busy working to deliver a newly developed 5-year fundraising strategy 2015-2020, so it’s a particularly exciting and challenging time to join us. This particular role sits within our in-house face-to-face and door-to-door teams that deliver around 85% of Shelter’s new regular giving supporters. Your challenge? To provide inspirational training, coaching and leadership, set high standards and make sure team leaders provide motivational and results-focused management of team members. We’ll also rely on you to be present on a daily basis in the field to make sure the teams are fulfilling target requirements. Liaising with external suppliers, including recruitment agencies, will be important too, as will making sure we comply with IOF guidelines for D2D activity. And, when it comes to providing feedback or helping to resolve instances of under-performance, again we'll count on you.
You’ll need proven relevant experience and an in-depth understanding of the fundraising environment and the value of regular giving. We’ll also be looking for a proactive, results-driven approach, lots of creativity and innovation and the communication and people management skills it takes to motivate and influence others. Proficiency using Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint plus experience of using databases for reporting is also required.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
