Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Manager
Migraine is the third most common disease in the world. 10 million people across the UK are living with this often complex and debilitating brain disease right now, and it is ruining far too many lives.
The Migraine Trust has been investing in migraine research, providing high-quality, evidence-based information and support, and campaigning for change for 55 years.
We are already the largest migraine charity in the UK, but with the arrival of a new CEO in March 2019, we are starting to set out new plans to reach more people affected by migraine, involve more people, help more people, and improve more people’s lives. We launch a new and exciting five-year strategy at the end of February!
Outstanding fundraising will be the engine for our new ambition. And we are looking for an outstanding new Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Manager to lead our three-person Fundraising Team and transform our charity’s fundraising activities.
We want to grow the number of people supporting our charity from just over a thousand currently to several thousand over the next decade. We want the Fundraising Team to use as many effective, innovative and engaging fundraising approaches as possible to get us there, while delivering an amazing experience for our donors.
We are looking for a brilliant fundraising all-rounder with strategic vision, creativity, limitless enthusiasm and determination, and the ability to not only inspire and lead their own Fundraising Team exceptionally well, but also to work collaboratively and effectively with other teams from across our charity.
If that’s you, in return we offer a competitive salary and generous employer pension; an informal, family-friendly and inclusive culture in a newly refurbished central-London office; an absolute commitment to your personal development; and the opportunity to work with some of the most passionate and ‘can do’ people in the charity world.
We want to help you to do amazing things, we want you to be as ambitious for yourself as you are for our charity, and we want you to have fun and challenge yourself at work.
