Job description

Closing date: 25 April 2021 at 11.30 pm.

Interviews: w/c 3rd May (5th or 6th May subject to change)

Are you passionate about helping others and excited at the prospect of joining the fundraising division of one of the UK’s leading charities at an exciting time in its history? Then join Shelter as Legacy Administration Manager and you could soon be helping us to maximise the income generated by our Legacy fundraising team.

About 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.

At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.

About the team

A key part of our Income Generation Directorate, Shelter’s Legacy & In Memory programme generated £9m in FY20, representing c.25% of our voluntary income. Legacy gifts are a vital source of unrestricted income and we’re targeting significant growth in legacy income over the next decade. As our exciting programme continues to grow and develop, this is a truly exciting time to join the award-winning team that delivers long-term support and income to the UK’s largest housing charity.

About the role

You’ll play a vital role in supporting our ambitious long-term growth in legacy income by effectively managing and optimising the administration of legacies that Shelter and Shelter Scotland receive, whilst protecting the charity from any reputational or financial risk. As well as managing a broad range of non-contentious cases, including pecuniary, residuary, discretionary, life interest and high value estates, we’ll rely on you to act as the primary contact for executors, friends and family, solicitors etc. You’ll also be responsible for carrying out some complex casework involving probate, contentious tax, trust and property issues. Along the way, you’ll get to work closely with colleagues across the Income Generation team nationally, while also building strong relationships with a range of other Shelter functions.

About you

To succeed, you’ll need to be qualified in probate, trust and tax law and/or with a Certificate in Charity Legacy Administration (CiCLA) and/or significant experience in the legacy management field. You’ll also need experience of proactively managing high levels of reputational and financial risk and acting as a subject matter expert. In particular, you’ll need expertise in providing advice to Trustees in relation to property disposals, ex-gratia payments, contentious matters and court proceedings. You’ll also need a proven ability to produce reports and liaise with a leadership team regarding high value and contentious legacy bequests, working with a media team where a PR risk exists. Excellent communication and presentation skills plus experience of managing relationships with people at all levels is important too.

How to apply

Please submit your application via our online system, CoreHR. Your application should consist of a CV and supporting statement (no more than 350 words for each paragraph), focusing on real examples of how you have demonstrated or met the knowledge, skills and experience points on the job description and the following behaviours:

- We prioritise diversity and have an inclusive and open mindset

- We work together to achieve our shared purpose - We create change and align behind our strategy

Any applications submitted without a supporting statement will not be considered.

Benefits

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, payroll giving, 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.

We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
