We are working in partnership with The Fire Fighters Charity, who provide specialist, lifelong support for members of the UK fire services community, empowering individuals to achieve mental, physical and social wellbeing throughout their lives. They exist to support all fire and rescue service personnel, whatever their role in the service, including all those who have retired, as well as for spouses and qualifying dependants.

They are now seeking an Individual Giving Officer to contribute to the delivery of an established income generation programme to recruit, retain and uplift individual donors across a range of audiences, giving products (including Lottery and Raffle) and channels (including phone, email, and face to face).

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:

  • Experience of direct and relationship marketing or fundraising

  • Knowledge of fundraising procedures and techniques and/or digital skills would be advantageous

  • Experience in developing and maintaining successful working relationships with a range of stakeholders

  • Experience using standard Microsoft packages (including Excel) and Salesforce would be advantageous

We are seeking an individual with excellent written and verbal communication, with the ability to manage multiple projects, deadlines and prioritise workload, with excellent organisational skills and the ability to understand and interpret complex data. Ability to travel and occasionally stay overnight is expected.
