Hft is one of the largest and longest-established charities supporting people with learning disabilities. We work with people with learning disabilities to enable them to live the best lives possible. It's about giving people with learning disabilities the chance to have the kind of lives we might want for ourselves, or for our loved ones.
Are you someone who really understands what makes a truly fantastic supporter journey? Do you know what it takes to successfully grow an Individual Giving portfolio? Do you have an eye for innovation and trying new things?
If you’ve just answered yes, we would love to hear from you.
About the role
There has never been a more exciting time to join us. With the implementation of a new Fundraising & Engagement Plan, we are ambitious to grow to help even more people with learning disabilities.
Individual Giving is key to our growth. Thousands of people have benefited from Hft’s work- those with a learning disability, and their families, carers & friends. We want to reach even more people to let them know about the great work Hft is doing, and you will be central to developing a strategy to reach, along with testing innovative ways to engage the public in supporting our work.
You will line manage the Individual Giving Officer and be responsible for planning and implementing Individual Giving Acquisition campaigns. You will need to liaise with internal and external stakeholders including agency management to build strong relationships for the successful delivery of campaigns and strategies.
We have big ambitions at Hft. However, these can only be achieved with the right people with the right skills and attitude.
We are looking for a real team player with a strong understanding of all things Fundraising. You will need an understanding of finance for campaign management and have created, run and managed fundraising campaigns from beginning to end. To be considered for this role, you will need to demonstrate strong Individual Giving, Direct Marketing or Supporter Engagement experience both in Acquisition and Retention.

- Experience of managing and innovating Acquisition and Retention campaigns across multiple products
- Strong interpersonal skills including the ability to develop and maintain key relationships
- Analytical and budget management skills to monitor and review numerous activities and campaigns using insight to inform decision making
This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in a forward thinking, welcoming organisation in the early stages of a new Fundraising and Engagement plan.
We look forward to hearing from you!
