For 160 years Battersea has been here for every dog and cat. We are a globally renowned charity, driven by the collective passion, commitment and determination of our staff, volunteers and supporters, who strive to create a world where dogs and cats are treated with care, compassion and respect.
Battersea has benefitted from exceptional growth in its income over the last decade, fuelled in particular by a sector-leading individual giving programme and supplemented by rising legacy income and an evolving philanthropy, partnerships and commercial portfolio. We are emerging from the Covid pandemic in good shape, ready to expand and innovate in our work and seize opportunities that lie ahead.
Our new Director of Income Generation will lead a successful, award-winning and highly motivated Income Generation Directorate, delivering increasing, sustainable income to fund Battersea’s ambitious strategy to help more dogs and cats in need. You will seek to maximise returns from a diverse income portfolio, identifying and rolling-out new income streams, and ensuring strong, long-lasting relationships with our supporters, donors and partners.
We are looking for an accomplished senior fundraiser, who has successful experience of working at Director level in a large, dynamic charity, with a track record of income generation of £20m+ per annum. You will have proven experience of innovation across a diverse income generation portfolio (including individual giving, commercial, corporate, trusts and high net worth) which has delivered strong income growth.
A highly skilled and experienced people manager, you will bring success in creating, leading, motivating and developing managers and high performing, diverse and collaborative teams. Beyond a passion for animal welfare, we are looking for an inspirational, collaborative and highly motivated individual to help us achieve our goals, and who will join the executive team of a welcoming, open and inclusive organisation.
