We are seeking an experienced Senior Legacy Acquisition Executive  to implement a legacy acquisition programme, to recruit new prospects and pledgers to drive forward ambitious growth plans to help fund our work.

This post is part of a growing Individual Giving team responsible for direct marketing, legacy and in-memory income streams and generating an annual income stream of around £6.5 million, of which legacies contribute nearly £2 million.

In this role, you will implement and develop a legacy acquisition strategy to market the leaving of Gifts in Wills, and increase the number of legacies received. You will engage with staff, volunteers and supporters all over the UK. You will also incorporate key learnings from legacy stewardship programmes into the legacy acquisition programmes.

What we want from you
To be successful, you’ll need to have project managed legacy acquisition campaigns from planning through campaign briefing, overseeing agency design, copywriting and editing. You will also have experience of briefing and managing data processing, print and production process, reporting financial and non financial KPIs and setting up backend procedures. Ideally, you will have managed Gifts in Wills events. You’ll need experience of using databases, and familiarity with Raiser’s Edge and First Class would be a distinct advantage.

Knowledge in delivering a legacy promotion culture, working with stakeholders from across the organisation and utilising legacy offerings such as Free Wills Month, Free Wills Network campaigns and the annual Remember a Charity campaign, to acquire new legacy prospects and pledgers, is essential.

The support we’ll provide
Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance, child care vouchers, and season ticket loan – but much more besides.

For further information, please don't hesitate to contact Charlotte Wilmot, Eardley Wilmot, for an informal chat, 

The deadline for this role is rolling, and we are assessing applications as we receive them, so we look forward to hearing from you as soon as you are ready.
