We have hugely ambitious targets for income growth and want you to develop our recently launched WWF Weekly Lottery as a key product within our fundraising portfolio.

You will ensure that all activities and campaigns comply with fundraising and gambling regulations and policies too. You will also keep abreast of changing trends in this sector and identify improvements to enhance the supporter experience. Important will be the ability to build strong partnerships with external agencies to maximise the performance of this income stream.
For this opportunity, your background will be in individual giving or direct marketing where you will have gained solid experience of delivering large multi-channel direct marketing campaigns. You will have a detailed understanding of acquisition and retention techniques across channels as well as experience of Prize Led campaigns. Comfortable leading projects within a complex stakeholder landscape, you will be used to analysing performance data and market trends, interpreting findings and acting on insight gained. You will also be familiar with the regulations and governing bodies associated with prize led fundraising. You will be used to managing external suppliers or agencies too.
An excellent communicator, you will also be effective at networking and presenting. A team player, you will enjoy working in a collaborative way, be effective at planning and meeting deadlines and can demonstrate a commitment to the natural world and our core mission.
