We’re looking for a creative and innovative individual with experience of managing door-to-door (D2D) teams, to join us as Deputy Door to Door Fundraising Manager and help coach, manage and develop our D2D team.
 

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve. 

Fundraising is at the heart of Shelter’s success and we are currently working to generate a gross income of £45m by 2019/20. Our in-house team plays its part by focusing on bringing quality new supporters on board through F2F & D2D fundraising, which currently delivers around 85% of our new regular giving supporters. We run a number of teams across the UK and now is a particularly exciting time to join us.

About the Role
Working closely with the D2D Manager, you’ll help manage all of our in-house D2D activity, including ensuring campaigns are delivered on time and meet targets. We’ll also rely on you to monitor the performance of teams and individuals, report on progress and identify and act upon any areas where improvement is needed. Playing your part in the people management of the team will be important too, including conducting regular 1-2-1 meetings, coaching and motivating the team and assisting in an effective recruitment programme. And, when it comes to making sure all administration is completed accurately and follows efficient processes, again, we’ll count on you to deliver.


About you
As well as a proven track record in a D2D/F2F role, we’ll be looking for a proactive and collaborative approach plus a flair for identifying emerging opportunities or taking action to avoid potential problems. A real customer focus, excellent communication and relationship building skills and the resilience to deal effectively with potentially difficult situations is also essential, as is the ability to lead change and improve performance. Proficient using Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, email and the internet, you’ll also need the know how to use databases for reporting purposes.

Benefits
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
