£23,000 – £25,000 per year
Contract: 9 months with the potential to extend, Part-time (21 hours a week)
As Fundraising Officer (Supporter Development) you will be responsible for the development of our supporter development income streams, including individual giving, legacies and in memory giving. You will manage the promotion of these, coordinating appeals across multiple channels, as well as the administration and stewardship required to ensure excellent supporter journeys. You’ll be the key coordinator for the distribution and sales of our Christmas Cards as well as for our public fundraising collections, recruiting and liaising with volunteers throughout the year.
You’ll be joining a small but friendly and committed team, dedicated to building lasting relationships with The Lullaby Trust’s amazing supporters and raising the income needed to ensure we can continue our vital, life-saving work.
This role is currently a 9 month fixed term contract but with the potential to extend. The post is for 21 hours a week and is currently home based. We are planning to move to a hybrid model of working between home and a central London office near London Bridge over the next 6-12 months. However, we are open to applicants from outside of London remote working and travelling in to London occasionally for events and meetings. We would be happy to discuss this at interview. An even spread of hours across the working week would be preferable, although this can also be discussed at interview.
We’re looking for a self-motivated individual with excellent attention to detail and a commitment to fantastic supporter care. You’ll be equally as happy carrying out thorough administrative processes as you are chatting to donors on the phone.
The ideal candidate will have experience of building individual giving income streams and/or working in a supporter care focused role. You will have strong verbal and written communication skills and demonstrable experience of creating engaging, persuasive appeal copy. A positive, determined attitude and willingness to get stuck in will be key, as will your compassion for our bereaved beneficiaries and supporters.
