Individual Giving Manager

Poole, Dorset

Closing: 31 December Salary: On application Contract Type: Permanent Hours: 35 Hours per week

Job Description

Every moment counts. Every memory matters.  

Join our family and be part of our passionate, dedicated team where you can make a real difference to the lives of others and help to make every moment count and every memory matter.  

Julia’s House is not a typical children’s hospice. We provide practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition. We tailor our care to the needs of each individual child and their family, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at our two hospices, across Dorset and Wiltshire. We have big aspirations to ensure no child is turned away from our care and are looking to develop our fundraising team, to help us achieve our ambitious goals.  

As our Individual Giving Manager you will be responsible for leading and motivating the Individual Giving team. You will have extensive experience in individual giving and supporter communication in the voluntary sector, have managed a small fundraising team and have set up and developed a successful donor acquisition and retention programme to maximise growth of income.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of securing donations from individuals and producing compelling campaigns for donors at various giving levels. You will have demonstrable experience of working within a revenue fundraising environment and will be able to spot opportunities for furthering philanthropic support. This role will suit an ambitious, focused individual with experience of contributing to strategy.

You will be a self-starter with the comprehensive project management skills necessary to deliver a wide range of complex campaigns, within agreed timescales and budgets. In particular you will have excellent communication skills (both written and spoken) and possess a genuine passion to see Julia’s House succeed in achieving our objectives.    

This position is based at our head office in Poole, Dorset. A full driving licence and use of a car for business purposes are essential. We offer 30 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays and an Employee Assistance Programme amongst our benefits.  

Closing date: 31 December 2018.              Interviews will be held in early January 2019.
