Would you like to help create a world without barriers for deaf children and young people?
The National Deaf Children’s Society is the leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people.
Do you want to play a pivotal role in raising the funds we need to provide our life-changing services for deaf children and their families?
In 2017/18 the National Deaf Children’s Society aims to raise £24.5 million to fund our range of services and campaigning work. Around 90% of this will be generated through the activities of the Supporter Marketing team, and is made possible through an active and established programme of supporter recruitment. We have ambitious plans to continue the growth that has seen us double fundraising income since 2005, allowing us to extend the reach of our services for deaf children and young people.
The Head of Supporter Recruitment is a senior role within the Supporter Marketing team, responsible for maximising long term net income by recruiting new individual financial supporters. Line managing four direct reports, and with additional responsibility for the operation of a team of up to 30 street fundraising representatives, you will oversee a portfolio of activities to profitably attract new supporters, in line with internal policies and sector regulations.
Working across a range of channels, including door-to-door, public street locations, telemarketing, direct mail and digital, you will have responsibility for an annual expenditure budget of around £6.5m and be tasked with recruiting more than 80,000 new supporters each year.
