This role is key to driving forward our ambitious and highly successful annual fundraising campaigns. From our first
ever Sleep in the Park event in 2017 to last year’s Break the Cycle and Festival of Kindness campaigns, this
role is pivotal to the delivery and success of large-scale events working closely with all teams across the
organisation to make each event a resounding success. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to bring
together your creative and strategic thinking to help shape the growth and impact of a ground-breaking
organisation as we embark on the next steps towards our vision.
We’re looking for someone who is creative, enthusiastic, highly collaborative, positive and solutions focussed. You
will have a track history of leading successful campaigns and thrive in a high-pressured environment. The ideal
candidate will enjoy:
• Making a difference – each campaign provides significant funds to support the mission of homelessness and has
direct tangible impact on the people we support.
• Making it happen – using problem-solving skills and a can-do attitude to get things ‘over the line’ while
maintaining the highest professional standard with great attention to detail.
• Building excellent internal and external relationships, working with colleagues and third parties to meet campaign
targets and maximise engagement.
• Both the big picture and the finer details.
• Planning, evaluating and reporting – continually building on success by leading meetings and processes for thinking
ahead, capturing insights and learnings, implementing improvements and so on.
This position will report into the Head of Individual Giving & Marketing, working closely day-to-day with the
Senior Campaigns and Fundraising Executive, and the wider Fundraising and Marcomms team. You will also liaise
regularly with our co-Founder and others in the Exec leadership team for strategic input and progress
