Job Details

Harris Hill are delighted to be working with a UK health charity to recruit their new Fundraising Lead.

They are a relatively small and agile organisation who punch above their weight and have big ambitions.

This charity is dedicated to making life better for people with eczema and their families. In the UK, around 1 in 5 children and 1 in 10 adults live with eczema, so lots of people look to the charity for hope and support. Their mission is to empower people to live well with eczema, to become ‘expert patients’ supported by a charity that puts their needs first. Through growing their research, campaigning and awareness-raising, they are working to improve eczema care now and in the future.

  • Managing individual giving activity – including activities such asregular giving, one-off donations and appeals, digital fundraising and payroll giving
  • Developing and implementing a supporter engagement programme – create a multi-channel communication programme to optimise supporter retention and deepen engagement
  • Leading on supporter appeals - working with other function leads to ensure activity is integrated and optimised
  • Managing challenge event activity - including promoting and allocating National Eczema Society Gold Bond places in key events
  • General management activities – such as budgeting, planning, strategy development

This would be a great opportunity for an experienced and ambitious fundraiser to take ownership of and drive the future direction of fundraising for this small but mighty charity.

Benefits include;

  • Salary £40,000
  • Full-time, permanent
  • Hybrid 2 days in the office, 3 from home.
