We are looking for someone to lead the Regular Giving team and develop operational and strategic budgets and plans for the Regular Giving programme working across a mix of donor acquisition channels and retention strategies to ensure long term sustainable income and to maximise donor lifetime value.
At Battersea, we aim to never turn away a dog or cat in need of help. We give each one lots of love and expert care and get to know their characters and quirks so we can find them a new home that’s just right for them.
All the knowledge we gather in our centres helps us to improve the lives of the animals we’ll never meet, through our work with other rescue organisations and charities. We also help people make informed choices when getting a pet, we provide training and welfare advice, and we campaign for changes in the law when we see that dogs and cats or their owners deserve better.
Join us and help us be here for every dog and cat, wherever they are, for as long as they need us.
Income Generation department
Battersea’s multiple award-winning Income Generation department raises around 60% of the Charity’s total income. Working with colleagues across the organisation, we provide members of the public and organisations with opportunities to engage with Battersea and to support our work. Through continued investment, net fundraising income has risen from just £100,000 in 2010 to £13m in 2021, and we will continue to grow our income to make sure Battersea can be here for every cat and dog now and in the future.
Public Fundraising is responsible for generating income from new and existing supporters through direct marketing and fundraising events. Within Public Fundraising, sits the Direct Marketing team. We recruit and develop supporters through direct marketing activities including: face-to-face fundraising, legacy promotion, direct mail appeals, raffles and DRTV.
What we can offer you
We offer our employees a wide range of benefits to reward them for the value that they bring to Battersea, to support them in their work, to help improve their health and wellbeing, and maintain a healthy work-life balance. These include:
28 days of annual leave (plus 8 days paid public holidays) per year
Generous pension contributions – up to 10% employer contribution
Free healthcare cash plan, where you can claim for a range of treatment including dental (£100), optical (£100), physiotherapy, chiropody and acupuncture (£325) every year
Annual interest-free season ticket loans
Discounted gym memberships and cycle to work schemes
Support for your professional and career development, including access to digital and in-person training programmes, a wide range of tools and resources, leadership and management training, mentoring and much more.
Hybrid working policy
We operate a hybrid working model, with our office-based staff splitting their time between site based and home working. We believe this enables our office-based staff to maintain the benefits of home working, while allowing for collaboration and interaction with our animal-facing staff and maintaining a connection to our cause. As such, you’ll be expected to work in our Battersea office for at least 50% of your working week.
Equality, diversity and inclusion at Battersea
At Battersea, we are committed to providing equality of opportunity, and developing and supporting a diverse workforce and inclusive culture in all aspects of our organisation. We aim to ensure that this pledge, reinforced by our values, is embedded in our day-to-day working practices and our work together.
By hearing from and valuing different experiences, perspectives and contributions, we know we can provide the best expert care for every dog and cat who needs us. We particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities and from members of minority ethnic communities, who we know are currently under-represented at Battersea.
