Supporter Acquisition Manager

At the Charity for Civil Servants, we can’t always prevent the tricky, stressful, sad stuff from happening. But when it does happen, we help current, former and retired civil servants get the best support. Join us as we embark on the next phase of our strategy to ensure we can be there when people need us the most.

Our supporters are the lifeblood of the Charity, most being current or former civil servants themselves and we are thankful for their support. Working alongside colleagues across the Charity, Civil Service and payroll fundraising agencies, the Supporter Acquisition Manager will play a key role in developing a multi-channel acquisition strategy, driving growth in new supporters and income. You will be innovating and delivering products and campaigns that inspire our audiences, ensuring that we raise the funds needed to continue our important work.

To be successful in this role, you will be proactive, results-driven and committed to providing an excellent supporter experience. You will have extensive direct marketing and product development fundraising experience, strong budget and management experience and be adept at delivering audience-led strategy across acquisition. Great communication skills and experience of leveraging digital solutions as well as multi-channel marketing will be essential.

This is an exciting time to join the Charity as we seek to embed our presence as a UK-wide charity and deliver sustainable income and supporter growth. Reporting to the Head of Individual Giving & Legacy, you will be part of an exciting department responsible for growing our largest and longest-term sources of income – our regular giving propositions (including payroll giving and lottery) and legacy fundraising. Regular Giving and donations from individuals are an essential part of our fundraising strategy, constituting over 80% of our income currently. If you would like to be a key member of our Fundraising department, then we would like to hear from you today!

In return, we can offer you excellent benefits including a health cash plan, Headspace, life assurance, excellent pension, generous annual leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and our cycle to work scheme.

To apply, please submit your CV and a covering letter that states why you would be suitable for this role. The closing date for applications is 23:59pm, 21 April 2024. Interviews will be held on 30 April or 2 May. Please let us know in your covering letters if either of these dates would be difficult for you.

The Charity for Civil Servants are committed to building and developing a workforce which reflects the diversity of the civil service community that we support. We seek to ensure all job applications are treated fairly, with respect and without bias and we encourage applications from suitably experienced candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or belief, or any other factor.
