Database Officer (12 Month FTC)

About Us

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) is a unique and dynamic membership organisation which comprises 15 of the UK’s leading humanitarian charities: ActionAid UK, Age International, British Red Cross, CAFOD, CARE International UK, Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide (UK), International Rescue Committee (IRC), Islamic Relief Worldwide, Oxfam GB, Plan International UK, Save the Children UK, Tearfund and World Vision UK. When large scale disasters hit countries without the capacity to respond, the DEC brings together our 15 member charities to raise funds quickly and efficiently. In these times of crisis, people in life-and-death situations need our help and our mission is to save, protect and rebuild lives through effective humanitarian response.

Pooling our resources to work as one, we are pivotal in co-ordinating the UK public's response to overseas disasters. In collaboration with our Rapid Response Network of national media and corporate partners, we raise the alarm to the UK public and set up easy ways to donate, with the majority of our funds raised over an intensive two-week period following a disaster.

Since our launch in 1963, we have run over 70 fundraising appeals and raised more than £1.7bn, saving countless lives and rebuilding communities.

We are now looking for a Database Officer to join our team for a 12 month fixed term contract.

The Benefits

- Salary of £32,000 per annum, subject to experience
- Great benefits package
- Support humanitarian efforts across the globe

This is an exceptional opportunity for a database professional from a charity sector background to develop and advance their career with an engaging contract for our ground-breaking organisation.

Playing a vital role in our behind-the-scenes development, you will make sure we are compliant and have access to data that will enable our teams to drive our fundraising activity and meet our future needs.

So, if you are ready to use your expertise to enhance and support our mission, we are eager to hear from you.

The Role

As a Database Officer, you will be responsible for the import, management and maintenance of data from a variety of income sources onto our Salesforce database. You will also provide support for other data management tasks such as cleansing and financial reporting.

Specifically, you will maintain the quality of data through housekeeping tasks, administer staff database access and oversee various data feeds into the database. Managing the development of the database, you will drive database improvement projects and act in a creative fashion towards database activities, proposing new initiatives to advance usage and engagement with the data.

Communicating data analysis and business intelligence information effectively, you will design and implement reports that meet internal needs and ensure marketing data is coded and segmented correctly.

Additionally, you will:

- Champion the effective use of the database and data accuracy
- Train new and existing staff on data and the database
- Resolve end-user requests
- Ensure we adhere to data protection legislation and regulations
- Audit the database regularly
- Ensure the database and associated tools are working effectively

About You

To be considered as a Database Officer, you will need:

- Experience of using databases in a charity setting
- Excellent organisational skills and close attention to detail
- A methodical approach to data and a good eye for detail
- Excellent interpersonal and written skills for use with other departments and other key stakeholders
- The ability to cope in a fast-paced, pressured environment
- The ability to plan and prioritise deadlines
- Excellent numeracy and Excel skills

Experience using Salesforce would be beneficial to your application, as would the ability to pick up new processes quickly and help to identify where existing processes could be improved.

The ability to work in a team, as well as independently, would also be advantageous, as would A-Levels or equivalent, with Maths and English GCSEs.

Other organisations may call this role Fundraising Database Officer, Supporter Database Officer, Charity Database Officer, Data Officer, or Data Management Officer.
