About the role
With over seven million members, supporters and activists worldwide, Amnesty International is the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation. At Amnesty International UK, we want to grow income and the number of people connected to human rights through their support of our work. Your role will be to lead the Fundraising Projects Unit (FPU), which is responsible for delivering strategic projects that will improve the foundations of our fundraising programme to support that growth. Established a year ago, the FPU focus has been on fundraising policy and compliance. Going forward, the focus for the FPU and this role will include strategic projects to shape our fundraising proposition and to manage supporter consent.
You will be experienced and skilled in leading cross-functional strategic project groups, often including colleagues from senior levels of the organisation. You will have proven experience of successfully designing and managing substantial multiple projects within a fundraising context and will understand individual giving. You will be experienced in brand or fundraising proposition development and can design a strategic project to deliver this. You will have followed the changing regulatory environment for fundraising, understand its implications and will have led on projects related to compliance and best practice.
A natural problem solver, you will have the ability to assess complex problems and opportunities and develop appropriate solutions to address these by engaging relevant stakeholders, including at senior / board level. You will excel at facilitating strategic thinking / planning sessions and have excellent people and communication skills. You will also be organised and able to prioritise projects according to organisation need.
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they are denied. Already our network of over seven million people is making a difference in almost every country in the world. Whether we are applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we are all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are enjoyed by all.
