Individual Giving Officer

CPRE, the countryside charity is looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Individual Giving Officer to support the development, delivery and growth of our individual giving programme through exciting new innovation testing.

Over the past year CPRE, the countryside charity has undergone a great transformation which has led to a range of exciting developments including a completely new brand, a strong set of organisational values, a new strategy, in depth audience insight and the launch of a new website.

As one of two individual giving officers, you will support programme growth and generate income from donors, both new and existing. These donors will give to us through membership, regular donations, annual appeals, raffles and digital fundraising, and through new products we are in the process of establishing.
Reporting to the Individual giving manager, you will support the development, implementation and growth of a portfolio of products, while working in our friendly and busy office in London. By building upon existing relationships, and attracting and converting new supporters, you will grow our income in this area, helping to create a sustainable platform for all our fundraising activity.

We are looking for an enthusiastic all-rounder – someone with a real passion and aptitude for working with creative partners and colleagues to creating compelling and effective fundraising communications, while also being confident in the more technical aspects of direct marketing: drafting data briefs, devising robust tests and analysing results.

The successful candidate will have previous experience in a charity fundraising environment and a proven track record in project managing direct marketing activities across a variety of income streams and channels, including digital and social media. Ideally, your experience will include supporter acquisition as well as retention, with knowledge of new product/offer development and implementation of ‘test and learn’ programmes.

To apply, candidates should send us their CV, the referee sheet with a covering letter addressing how they meet the criteria of the Job and person specification; failing to do this, will mean you will be unlikely to be shortlisted.  Please send your covering letter and CV, with the job referee sheet to jobs@cpre.org.uk by the closing date.
