Senior Regional Fundraising Manager

Job description
This is an exciting time to join the world’s largest independent conservation organisation. We are engaged in the vital work of saving our planet and have an exciting opportunity for an experienced fundraiser to develop and build regional income streams capitalising on opportunities across regional fundraising. If you have a background in fundraising and stewarding supporters, this role of Senior Regional Fundraising Manager is for you.

As Senior Regional Fundraising Manager, you will manage and develop our Regional Fundraising strategy, including Corporate, Community and Student fundraising. Leading a team of committed fundraisers, you will design and implement plans to build and grow our regional fundraising portfolio. This will include identifying new business, setting budgets and deploying supporter insight, data and external trend analysis to identify opportunities to grow the Community Fundraising portfolio. You will also evaluate the effectiveness against campaign objectives and strategic KPIs ensuring that key learnings are used to inform future activities. You will work to improve supporter journeys across a range of channels to increase retention and maximise giving too. Important will be the ability to share best practice and collaborate with management colleagues to expand the regional fundraising team across the UK.
You must have experience of regional or Community fundraising and working on multiple income streams including schools, corporates, groups and volunteers. You will have managed multi-channel marketing campaigns as well as relationships with media agencies and external suppliers.

Effective at inspiring high performing teams, you will have track record of achieving financial and non-financial targets. You will also possess knowledge of fundraising best practice and legal requirements relating to community fundraising. Critically, you will bring knowledge of a range of innovative fundraising and events methods and principles.

In addition, you will possess excellent communication, negotiating and relationship building skills. Detail orientated, you will be an effective project manager, good at prioritising and able to deliver creative solutions in support of fundraising teams. You will be passionate about the aims of WWF-UK too.
If you are passionate about making our world a better place through your work, we would love to hear from you. Please click on the link and apply via our website by submitting a copy of your up-to-date CV and the Supporting Statement to highlight what makes you a good fit for us.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you. Here at WWF, we are committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be the last that can do anything about it. We are looking for people who are passionate about making it politically, socially and economically unacceptable to destroy our planet’s natural resources. We need you to join us in the fight for our world.
