This is an exciting opportunity to join the team who recently delivered a major refurbishment of this 1582 Tudor house, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Camden Council, numerous trusts and over 300 individuals.
Alongside the ‘transformation’ of the building we ran a creative 3 year education and outreach programme (‘Opening the Doors’) giving new opportunities to young people who live just 5 minutes away from the house on some of the most deprived estates in the country ( a significant contrast to the Highgate homes across the road). This programme has completed its first cycle and we have some great case studies, tangible outcomes, thorough evaluation and a real understanding of the need.
We believe that the relationships we have built over the past 5 years, the track record we have built with our outreach programme and our mission to be at the centre of a diverse range of communities put us in a strong position to build strategically our trust fundraising and individual giving.
We are therefore looking for a highly motivated, target driven individual to take our fundraising to the next level and integrate it as a key part of our business plan. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your arts and heritage fundraising career to the next level. You will enjoy working with a diverse range of people in a constantly changing environment, and thrive on the challenges offered by a small, buzzy arts and heritage venue with a highly varied offering.
The Fundraising Executive will have the opportunity to:
- develop a new individual giving programme building on the significant goodwill there is towards us in the community and amongst our users. ‘Lauderdale becomes part of your DNA’ quote from recent survey
- develop a new trusts and foundations programme building on the success of the capital appeal and Opening the Doors
- develop the fundraising systems and approaches needed to ensure superlative donor and funder care

We’re looking for an experienced and creative communicator to join us as Internal Communications Executive and support the development and delivery of high- quality internal communications to inspire and engage colleagues as we develop our internal culture to deliver Shelter’s ambitious new strategy.
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.
Internal communications is a critical function within Shelter. As well as 1,300 staff in multiple sites across England and Scotland, we have over 1,000 volunteers in our network of shops. So, it’s vital that we develop and maintain effective internal communications to ensure everyone is fully informed about our strategic direction and achievements. Our vision is to support and inspire staff to help more people by continuously improving the way we engage, communicate and share information across the organisation.
About the Role
Whilst you’ll work across the full channel mix, your particular focus will be on digital communications and our intranet. Building relationships with staff and volunteers across Shelter, you’ll generate engaging content and increase use through training and advocacy for our digital channels. You’ll co-ordinate plans to ensure the timely, effective two-way flow of information to bring our strategic priorities alive and embed them across the organisation. You’ll help to develop strategies and deliver projects that make internal communications integral to the success of the organisation.
You’ll be a concise and persuasive writer and editor, just as comfortable creating great content as coaching others to produce their own. You'll have a proactive approach, quick to anticipate opportunities, identify and mitigate against risks as well as inspiring trust and respect from a wide range of stakeholders. Swiftly developing a good understanding of Shelter’s work and challenges we face you’ll use this to shape communications strategies, plans and materials. You’ll have exceptional organisational skills and play close attention to detail. Just as vital as having a real enthusiasm for the power of internal communications, will be your ability to show it even under pressure.
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.
To find out more about the role and the benefits of working for Shelter please visit our website. Apply to be part of our team and be the change you want to see in society.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business. Shelter is committed to protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of those we support, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.
