About us

Greenbelt Festival takes place annually on the August bank holiday weekend with approximately 11,500 festival goers. For the last 50 years we have delivered a diverse programme across multiple stages, to create a festival that’s radically inclusive, open-minded, and generous in spirit. Our programming has included LGBTQ+ inclusion, climate justice, UK poverty and peace building, to name a few. We believe that by creating hospitable spaces of belonging where exceptional arts, courageous activism and open-hearted belief come together, we can inspire and empower participants – communities, families, activists, artists and organisations – to collaborate, conspire and act for the common good.

Greenbelt is operating in a tough, crowded marketplace, and against a challenging economic backdrop. But we have a huge amount of fundraising potential that we currently don’t have the capacity to leverage. We have an amazingly committed and generous community of supporters that are passionate about keeping and growing the festival. Secondly unlike most festivals we are a registered charity, and finally we know we create and inspire positive social change and we have the data and track record to evidence the impact we make. 

Contract: 2 years fixed-term contract with scope to extend.

Salary: £32,000 to £35,000. 26 days leave per Anum.

Location: Hybrid. Based in London Tuesday and Wednesday (max 32 weeks per year). We operate a four-day 34hour week.

About the role 

We are looking for a fundraiser with specific individual and digital fundraising skills to help us create new and inspiring ways for donors to support our work year-round, increasing our financial sustainability and most importantly, our impact. The role is focused on three key income streams: Greenbelt Angels (individual supporters who give us regular, monthly donations), cash appeals and donations and legacies. The role has got bags of opportunity for personal development, space to use your creativity and the unwavering support of a small, committed and values-based team. 

 About you 

To be successful in this role you will have a proven track record in at least two of the following; online individual giving, cash appeals and legacy fundraising. You will have: 

· The ability to design and deliver a financial 'ask' to individuals with appropriate supporting resources.

· Experience of fundraising through a range of digital channels (direct mail, email marketing and social media), thanking, banking and working to targets.

· Experience of creating bespoke supporter journeys to maximise income and engagement.

· Excellent written and verbal (phone and online) communication skills.

· Confidence in interpreting and managing customer data. 

· The ability to imagine new ways of doing things and work up ideas into solutions in collaboration with others

· The ability to listen well to understand the emotions and perspectives of those you work with in order to practise compassion and care for yourself and others.
