Philanthropy Manager (Giving Clubs)

Job Description

Philanthropy Manager (Giving Clubs)


Living Planet Centre, Woking (20 minutes from Clapham Junction)

Flexible working possible

If you understand the urgent need to restore nature and have successfully managed a giving club or planned giving programme, the role of Philanthropy Manager (Giving Clubs) may be the perfect opportunity for you.

This is an exciting new position in the world’s leading independent conservation organisation focused on maximising the vast, yet mostly untapped, potential of environmental philanthropy at a time when it is needed more than ever.

Your role will be to establish a high-value giving programme to grow mid-level philanthropy for two of our strategic priorities: ‘Thriving Habitats and Species’ and ‘Climate Change and Polar Regions’. We will look to you to create an integrated annual programme of print, digital materials and events to engage donors. You will also manage a small portfolio of donors to build a strong pipeline to major giving.

To play your part in saving our planet, you will have successfully managed a giving club or planned giving programme. As an accomplished project manager, you will use insight to develop new products to grow the programme. You will also be a creative and strategic thinker with excellent communication and influencing skills. And lastly, you will be the type of person who thrives in a fast-paced, high performing environment and can quickly and decisively respond to shifting requirements.
