Digital fundraising is transforming the way charities fundraise and connect with their supporters. More and more people are donating online and it’s now becoming the only way many people choose to support charities.
FFI is experiencing rapid exponential growth in the number of online supporters. Three years ago, online fundraising was virtually non-existent for FFI, and the growth over that period has been unprecedented, making it a major source of income today. The digital team – currently two people – has huge ambitions, and we need a talented individual to help us get to the next level.
The successful candidate will bring a specialism in copywriting and email marketing, and will use those skills to grow and develop the digital programme. They will be responsible for new initiatives, such as creating an email stewardship programme, ensuring donors receive information and updates that clearly show the difference they are making as a supporter of FFI.
You may be someone already working within fundraising or marketing, or someone with writing experience from another profession that is looking for a new challenge. If so and you want to work in a team that can match your ambitions while protecting the planet, this role may be for you.
The role requires someone with excellent organisation skills, a desire to learn and who is prepared to get stuck in with day-to-day tasks. You’ll need to have a strong knowledge base of email marketing fundamentals and experience of persuasive writing in a professional capacity is essential.
In return, the role offers an opportunity to learn and to develop your career in an exciting and rewarding environment. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance. Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
