In this newly created role, we’re looking for someone with a passion for challenge events, the digital environment, communication and data, to join our small and friendly team. The successful person will use their skills, creativity and enthusiasm to support the growth of our challenge events fundraising programme; and by doing so help improve the lives of blind and partially sighted people.

The role will independently manage a range of events, focused on maximising recruitment through well planned and executed marketing campaigns; maximising income and repeat support by delivering outstanding supporter stewardship across multiple channels; using data, insight and innovation to continuously improve supporter experience; leading and inspiring colleagues to deliver cross-team projects; and managing legal and financial event requirements.

All with the ultimate goal of raising more money to ensure RNIB can reach more people affected by sight loss.
