We are looking for a Fundraising Manager

14 August 2023

Universities Federation for Animal Welfare/Humane Slaughter Association.

Salary: £40,521 - £46,974 (full time or pro-rata part time), depending on experience and qualifications, plus £2434 London Weighting if appropriate.

Location: office-based or home-working (with occasional travel to meetings at our office in Hertfordshire or to attend fundraising events). Applicants must be legally entitled to live and work in the UK.

Are you a fundraiser with outstanding relationship-building skills? Or have you previously worked in marketing, customer care or sales and are interested in switching over to the highly rewarding charity sector?

UFAW (the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare) and the Humane Slaughter Association (HSA) are two sister charities focussed on the promotion of scientific, evidence-based approaches to animal welfare. We fund research, support the animal welfare science community and advocate for evidence-based improvements to animal welfare worldwide.

Both charities rely upon fundraising to support their activities and currently enjoy support from committed supporters in the form of legacies, membership income and ad hoc donations. However, with a renewed strategy and Fundraising Review, the charity is now seeking to grow its voluntary income to help achieve our ambitious plans over the long term. The Fundraising Review led by external consultants, identified significant potential for both charities to increase their incomes through a comprehensive fundraising programme, through which both charities aim to substantially grow their income from legacies, major donors, corporate support and memberships/regular giving.  The Trustees have agreed to make a substantial investment from the charities’ reserves to support this  development

As a result, we are looking for an ambitious Fundraising Manager with the skills and enthusiasm to revitalise our fundraising efforts. The candidate will lead the establishment of fundraising activities, including the development of fundraising programmes, implementation of fundraising systems, donor relationships and stewardship as well as the recruitment of junior fundraising staff.

As a small charity team, the postholder will need to be a self-starter who can work alongside the Senior Management Team and Trustees to rebuild our fundraising capacity. The role offers an outstanding opportunity for the right person to establish themselves as an innovative and successful fundraiser.

The ideal candidate will enjoy working as part of a multi-disciplinary team but also be confident to take the lead and work unsupervised when necessary.

This position can be office-based, or predominantly home-based: however, the postholder will be expected to attend some meetings at our offices in Hertfordshire as well as undertake travel within the UK and possibly overseas for conferences/ meetings and other relevant events- some of which may occur at weekends or in the evening. Because we’re based in the UK, the appointee will need to be UK-based and legally entitled to work in the UK.

Closing date: 8 September 2023
