The Fabian Society is seeking a Membership Development Officer to help grow both the size and the activism of our membership. The Membership Development Officer will be responsible for managing the member ‘journey’ i.e. recruitment, payment, welcome and renewal communications, member donations, member elections, analysis of membership data. The post also supports member activism, by providing support to member-led activities and projects (eg Young Fabians, Fabian Women, policy groups). In carrying out these tasks the priority is to maintain and develop robust systems; deliver an excellent level of customer service; and act as an ambassador for the society and its members.

Principal Duties

  • Process and maintain institutional memberships (Libraries, Corporates & Unions) and affiliated memberships (including members of local Fabian societies).

  • Manage the database aspects of our quarterly mailing to members. This includes providing accurate data to our mailing house; processing returned postal mailings; acting to acquire correct contact details and recording amendments/updates on the CIVI CRM.
  • Produce statistical information on our membership data, including routine quarterly reports and specific analysis as requested
  • Deliver exhibitions at Fabian Society and third-party events to act as an ambassador for the society and promote and market Fabian Society membership
