Events Fundraising Officer
We're looking for an ambitious Events Fundraising Officer to help deliver our new events fundraising strategy. This is a brand new role with huge opportunity for impact at this exciting time of growth and change for Independent Age. Over the past 10 years, Independent Age has been through a major transformation. We've moved from operating as a benevolent trust, to establishing ourselves as a charity that provides impact at scale, helping older people stay independent and live well. Last year, 1 million people accessed our services. Our plan now is to significantly increase our number of supporters and service users, and to deepen our engagement with them. In order to seize this opportunity and help us turn our vision into a reality, we have brought together the key functions that drive the public to Independent Age - Marketing, Communications and Fundraising - and taken the bold step of building a brand new Engagement Division. Key to our new Engagement Vision is our ability to maximise income from new and existing owned, bespoke and third-party events that deliver a long-term sustainable return. You'll play an important role in this new Division, responsible for the operational delivery of Independent Age's new Events Fundraising strategy. As a member of the Events Fundraising team, you'll support the delivery of a diverse events programme with a strong focus on mass participation events. You will work with the Events Fundraising Manager to use insight to recruit, retain and reactivate events participants, ensuring the best possible supporter experience to maximise lifetime value. You will have a track record of implementing successful Events Fundraising strategies, plans and diverse multi-channel events programmes. You will be experienced in delivering outstanding supporter care, building long-term relationships and supporting participation and income growth. Most importantly you'll be inspired by this unique opportunity to harness the power of events fundraising to help more older people as the UK grows older. If this is you, we'd love to hear from you. "All applications will be forwarded to our recruitment partners Charity People" Closing date is 25th June 2018.
