Home Based or RNLI Office

Ref: 6381

The RNLI continues to strive for excellence, delivering the best supporter journey and looking to be at the forefront of innovation.

As part of this, the Corporate, Trusts and Philanthropy teams joined to work as one, collaborative unit under the banner of the Key Investments Team at the start of 2015. This is an opportunity to deliver the Philanthropy channel, covering maternity leave for 9 to 12 months.

You will lead a team of fundraisers, giving them the tools and support to inspire key investors and maintain strong relationships with them through exemplary stewardship. The value stream has some challenging income and engagement targets, and so to deliver the strategy the senior manager will need to build upon the existing success the team has enjoyed and drive forward improvements and opportunities to grow.

This role will require an excellent stakeholder manager as the team works with many different channels, but in particular you will work closely with the Key Investment Team senior managers, ensuring that we continue to make the right ask, by the right person, at the right time.

A solid understanding of philanthropic giving and engaging with high net worth individuals is key. Previous management experience that includes financial and performance reporting, governance systems and managing geographically diverse teams would be advantageous.

The location of this role is flexible, but you will be required to travel frequently to meet with your team, Key Investment peers and key stakeholders.

A significant amount of work has been undertaken in the last twelve months to develop a strategy and build a team which can engage high net worth individuals. You will be responsible for the delivery of these plans, and for building innovative future ways of engaging, inspiring and stewarding the target audiences.

We have been bringing people together to save lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. Our staff and volunteers continue to make a real difference and we rely on the diversity of their skills, background and perspectives to successfully deliver our lifesaving service. We are committed to being an inclusive organisation and welcome applications for all our roles from everyone; all we look for in our applicants are the skills we need and a willingness to share our commitment to preventing loss of life at sea.
