The Supporter Engagement Officer will focus on generating income from individuals, supporting the implementation of the wider fundraising strategy, and using data and analysis from activities to identify and highlight opportunities to maximise income.
This role focuses on a key area of income for Tools for Self Reliance; individual giving. We have a loyal base of long term donors, and are working hard to reach new supporters. This role will take the lead on communicating with, thanking, and stewarding our donors, recognising their contribution and keeping them involved and engaged through managing the supporter journey process. The role also integrates marketing and communication activities as a central responsibility. The postholder will take proactive responsibility for keeping up to date with competitor activity, and with issues and trends relevant to fundraising.
You will need to be organised and self motivated, with great communication skills, able to work to deadlines, and an understanding of different digital platforms. This role is part of a small and busy team, working to meet our fundraising targets and ensure the continuity of our work on Africa, so you will need to be a committed team player with a strong work ethic.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about fundraising, enjoys communication with different groups of people, and is organised and self motivated. We’d love to hear how you can use your skills to support our ambition to increase income.
The role is a varied one – you will be working with a diverse range of supporters including Rotary and Inner Wheel, churches and faith groups and student fundraisers to deliver against set income and activity targets. You will also be taking the lead on our events programme, which includes quiz nights, sales, and our successful annual “Tea for Tools” campaign.
Our small fundraising team is proactive and hands on. We are looking for someone who is creative, solution focused, and a great communicator, who can use these skills to develop meaningful and productive partnerships in the community.
The Trustees of Tools for Self Reliance’s are actively seeking to strengthen the Board through the recruitment of up to three additional Trustees. The aim is to expand our range of expertise and experience and we are looking for candidates with a range of skills and professional backgrounds.
