About the role
Dementia is a huge and growing health crisis. By 2025, it’s predicted that over 1 million people in the UK will be living with this often devastating condition. Almost all of us will know someone with dementia – whether it’s a family member or a friend. There is no cure for dementia, but there is care. And care can change lives. That’s why Dementia UK is here – our nurses, called Admiral Nurses, who we continually support and develop, provide life-changing care for families affected by all forms of dementia – including Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia UK has seen significant income growth over the past five years, and we have ambitious plans to maintain this growth so we can significantly increase the number of Admiral Nurses, and the specialist support they provide.
Community fundraising will play an integral part of this growth as a key income stream for the charity. This includes local corporate fundraising, community groups, schools, and universities, DIY community fundraising and fundraising groups. The team has recently seen substantial growth in local corporate fundraising, and this will be a focus in the coming years. We are also continuing to develop and grow our Volunteer Ambassador program which supports Community Fundraising for the charity.
The Community Fundraising Executive will play a key role in developing the community fundraising programme by growing our mass and mid-value supporters and delivering supporter experiences that exceed expectations. To plan and deliver marketing activity that acquires new supporters, and to design supporter journeys that maximise average gifts.
As part of our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, we shortlist on the basis of responses to the application questions only. Although we need a CV, it will not be used to shortlist and so candidates need to make sure they fully answer the questions. Please send your answers to the application questions to email@example.com.
Closing Date: 5pm 18th May Interviews: week commencing 23rd May
