Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Officer

Migraine is the third most common disease in the world.  Over 10 million people across the UK are living with this complex, painful, debilitating and exhausting brain disease 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 55 years.

At the end of February we launched our exciting new five-year strategy with the aim of reaching more people affected by migraine, involving more people, helping more people, and improving more people’s lives.

Here’s where you come in!  We are looking for an outstanding Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Officer to help transform our charity’s fundraising activities.

You will be a brilliant fundraising all-rounder with limitless creativity, enthusiasm and determination, and the ability to lead a range of diverse fundraising projects while working collaboratively with other teams from across our charity.

You’ll be part of a new Fundraising Team that will be the engine for our charity’s ambitions.  We want to grow the number of people supporting our charity from just over a thousand currently to several thousand over the next decade.  And you’ll be able 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’re particularly looking to boost our digital fundraising, legacies, regular-giving, trusts and foundations, major donor and corporates activity.

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 of which you’ll always be proud.  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 this sounds like an adventure you want to be a part of, 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 5 April 2020.  Interviews will be on Tuesday 21 April 2020 at The Migraine Trust.
