Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Manager

Migraine is the third most common disease in the world.  Millions of people across the UK are living with the condition right now, and it is ruining far too many lives.

The Migraine Trust has been investing in migraine research, providing high-quality, evidence-based information and support, and campaigning for change for nearly 55 years.

We are now the largest migraine charity in the UK, but with the arrival of a new CEO in March 2019 we are starting to set out new plans to reach more people affected by migraine, involve more people, help more people, and improve more people’s lives.

We need an outstanding fundraising function to be the engine for that ambition.

We are looking for a new Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Manager to lead our three-person Fundraising Team and transform our charity’s fundraising activities.

We want to grow the number of people supporting our charity from just over a thousand currently to many thousands over the next five years.  We want the Fundraising Team to use as many effective, innovative and engaging fundraising approaches as possible to get us there, while delivering an amazing experience for our donors.

We are looking for someone very special who even at the end of their stellar career will still look back with huge pride at how their achievements enabled our charity to help improve thousands more lives.

This person will be an outstanding fundraising all-rounder with strategic vision, creativity, limitless enthusiasm and determination, and the ability to not only inspire and lead their own Fundraising Team brilliantly well, but also to work collaboratively and effectively with other teams from across our charity as well.

If that’s you, in return we offer a competitive salary and generous employer pension; an informal, family-friendly and inclusive culture in a newly refurbished central-London office; an absolute commitment to your personal development; and the opportunity to work with some of the most passionate and ‘can do’ people in the charity world.

We want to help you to do amazing things, we want you to be as ambitious for yourself as you are for our charity, and we want you to have fun and challenge yourself at work.

If you’re interested, please send your CV and a cover letter (two sides of A4 max) outlining why you want this job and why you think you would be right for it to angus.baldwin@migrainetrust.org   The deadline for all applications is Sunday 6 October 2019.  Interviews will be on Tuesday 22 October 2019 at The Migraine Trust.
