The Role

Poppy Appeal is one of the UK’s largest charity collections, bringing together the nation and providing the Royal British Legion with millions of pounds of vital income each year. Our corporate partners play a pivotal role in Poppy Appeal, enabling us to host collections, reach massive audiences and test innovative new fundraising methods. During last year’s lockdowns, when many of our volunteers could not participate, our corporate partners offered unprecedented levels of support for the Appeal.

This new role will support our relationship managers by coordinating and planning the delivery of Poppy Appeal activity through our key corporate partners. The person will ensure that we have the right fundraising assets, processes and procedures to deliver effective collections and outstanding customer experience for our partners. In addition, the role will deliver timely reporting and analysis to ensure that the Poppy Appeal Programme Board fulfils its strategic aims. This will require the building of successful relationships with other teams, including Marketing, Community Fundraising, Finance and the Poppy Appeal Programme Board.

We’re looking for someone with a logical approach, an eye for detail and experience of planning complex projects in the charity or private sectors. You will need to quickly understand the needs of our partners and colleagues, and have the ability to translate these into clear, monitored, deliverable plans. Working alongside our compliance team, you will ensure that our partnership activities have robust financial and legal frameworks in place. You should have a sound understanding of analysis and reporting, which will ensure we stay on track throughout the Appeal and can assess our performance when the fundraising is completed. Throughout the planning cycle, you will need to build strong networks across the Legion and collaborate effectively to help deliver the best Poppy Appeal yet.

Please note this role is based at our Haig House office, which is located at 199 Borough High Street, London, SE1 1AA. Until lockdown conditions are lifted, the role will be done virtually at home, and flexible working arrangements will be considered when the office opens again.
