Unicef UK

Gifts in Wills Stewardship Manager

12 month fixed-term contract




Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.




Unicef UK’s Gifts in Wills programme is responsible for promoting legacies to Unicef in a Will, managing the stewardship of these supporters and all probate administration on receipt of notification. It also includes the promotion and administration of the in memoriam programme.




We are recruiting for a Stewardship Manager to help us build an effective new legacy supporter welcome programme. You will be responsible for ensuring a smooth transition from cold lead generation through to our established supporter stewardship programme.


You will play a key role in helping us to deliver an ambitious strategy to reach new audiences and inspire them to consider leaving a gift in their Will, and maximise the amount of money we raise for children.




To succeed in this role, you will have experience of project management as well as advanced knowledge of direct marketing and digital practices, alongside supporter retention programmes. We are looking for a track record in confidently and effectively communicating to a varied audience of stakeholders, using external suppliers as well as strong project management skills.




This is a fantastic opportunity to work with an enthusiastic and dedicated team committed to raising awareness of the important role legacy and in memoriam gifts play in funding Unicef UK’s work.
