Job Details

The NSPCC’s mission is to end cruelty to children by fighting for every childhood. To carry out its charitable work, the NSPCC relies on the fundraising support of people across the UK for 90% of its annual income. Within fundraising, our aim is to provide maximum resources for the NSPCC. We aim to provide the best possible supporter experience, building long-term relationships to create an experience that is different, better, and more rewarding than that of supporting any other charity.

This role sits within the Volunteer Partnerships team, which consists of four volunteer fundraising boards, made up of influential and successful volunteers from certain sectors (sports, property, media & entertainment, luxury brands, art & finance) who feel passionately about the NSPCC and volunteer their time & expertise. The boards employ a range of fundraising techniques to reach their goals, but their main focus is to use their networks and influence to open up doors and secure income-generating opportunities via corporate partnerships, major gifts from individuals, collaboration with brands, and fundraising events, all of which generate significant funds for the NSPCC.

Each board typically comprises 10 to 15 individuals from specific sectors. Key achievements in recent years range from helping to secure major corporate partnerships such as Harrods and Morgan Stanley, and hosting high-value fundraising events to raising millions via donations from media owners.

The role of the Fundraising Executive is focused on providing support to the Volunteer Partnerships team to help activate new partnerships, and enhance existing partnerships, via effective management of the four volunteer boards. The role will also provide ad-hoc administrative support.

With the support of the Fundraising Managers and Fundraisers, the Fundraising Executive will ensure that maximum income is generated from new fundraising opportunities and projects, raising vital funds to protect vulnerable children and young people.

Company

NSPCC (the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) is a large national charity which campaigns to end child abuse and provides a range of services to children, young people and families throughout Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. NSPCC has 1,830 employees, 11,000 volunteers and an annual income of £134 million. Founded in 1884, NSPCC is governed by Royal Charter, first granted by Queen Victoria in 1895.

NSPCC specialises in child protection. It is the only UK children’s charity with statutory powers to intervene on behalf of children, powers which have existed for more than a century. In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, only local authorities and the NSPCC can apply to a court for a care, supervision, or child assessment order.

NSPCC provides 24/7 helplines for both adults and children. The NSPCC helpline supports thousands of parents, professionals and families. Adults can contact by phone or online in order to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if necessary. The helpline is staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in areas such as teaching, health and social work. Professionals such as teachers and doctors are also encouraged to contact the helpline for information and guidance. NSPCC says the number of calls and online contacts to the helpline is increasing year by year.

ChildLine, NSPCC’s free 24/7 counselling service for children, marks its 30th anniversary during 2016. Trained ChildLine counsellors talk to children, helping them with any problems they're facing. In 2014-15, there were nearly 300,000 counselling sessions carried out between young people and ChildLine. The most common issues were family relationships, low self-esteem and unhappiness, abuse, bullying and online bullying and self-harm.

NSPCC also has over 40 service centres across the UK and the Channel Islands. At these centres, the charity works directly with children and families on a range of issues, such as protecting children from sexual abuse, drugs and alcohol misuse and neglect.

The charity also visits 9-11 year olds in schools across the country through the NSPCC Schools Service, helping them to understand what abuse is and giving them the confidence to speak out and seek help if they ever need it.

In addition to its London headquarters, NSPCC has regional offices in Luton (East of England region), Gillingham (London & South East region), Leeds (Northern region), Birmingham (West Midlands region), Plymouth (South West region), St Helier (Jersey), Belfast (Northern Ireland) and Glasgow (Scotland).
