This is an exciting time to join us. This newly created post is designed to build our digital fundraising, grow the number of individuals actively supporting DR UK and increase income from trusts and foundations. You will be asked to come up with as many effective, innovative and engaging fundraising approaches as possible to help achieve these aims.
DR UK has continued working at full capacity during the pandemic:
- supporting disabled people contacting our helplines
- producing special Covid-19 supplements for the advice sector
- creating high level channels for feeding the experiences of disabled people into emerging national policy and practice
Motivation and communication across staff teams has never been better - being already used to remote working and having a strong unity of purpose at this time.
As our Fundraising Manager, you will have a unique opportunity to influence the design of new systems and ways of working. This will include helping shape the development of our digital strategy and the fundraising aspects of our new website, to be launched in the second half of 2021.
To fulfil this wide-ranging role, we are seeking a highly creative, determined and enthusiastic fundraising all-rounder, with the ability to lead on income generating activities, while working collaboratively with colleagues across the organisation.
You will report to and work with our Head of Business Development to make sure fundraising activities meet annual targets, raise DR UK's profile and enhance our reputation in line with our values.
In return we offer a highly competitive salary, employer pension, flexi-working and an informal, inclusive and modern workplace within the Here East innovation zone on the edge of the London Olympic Park. There will be opportunities for training and personal development.
To apply, please send your current CV together with a cover letter, outlining why you want this job and addressing each point in the person specification. Should you wish to apply using another format, please contact us. Applications without a suitable cover letter will not be considered.
The deadline for all applications is 9.00am on Monday, 1st February 2021.
Interviews will be on Wednesday 10th February 2021.
