Prospectus is excited to be partnering with The Children's Society to source their new Relationship Manager (Community Fundraising), to work with a range of supporters across the Diocese of Chelmsford, Ely, Norfolk and St Edmundsbury & Ipswich. This is a home-based regional community fundraising role, where the priority is building and growing what The Children Society call, 'Lifetime Value', which includes volunteering (time), fundraising (money) and campaigning (voice).
Reporting to the Senior Relationship Manager, the Relationship Manager will sit in the wider Supporter Communities and Groups team and will play an integral role in helping the organisation to implement their approach to supporter engagement. The Relationship Manager will lead on managing relationships with key supporter audiences and will recruit, support and develop fundraising volunteers from existing and new audiences.
The successful candidate will be an experienced relationship and volunteer manager with excellent supporter stewardship skills and, above all, emotional intelligence. The Children's Society are looking for someone proactive and personable, in addition to being comfortable working from home and effectively managing their own time.
It is essential that applicants are based in the area and you will need to have your own mode of transport. The Children's Society historically works closely with the Church of England networks, so candidates applying will need to be comfortable working with religious audiences (though religious background is not essential).
Interviews for this role will be held on Tuesday 26th February 2019 in Chelmsford.
