Education Support | London – flexible working arrangements when restrictions lift (TBC) | £40,000 | Full time, permanent
About the role
Think back to your school days. To that one teacher who inspired you and helped you become the person you are today. Imagine if that teacher had been so stressed with work pressures, that they left the profession for good. This is a growing reality for those in education today. Last year 52% of teachers had considered leaving the profession due to pressures on their health and wellbeing.
Education Support are there for everyone working in education. Established 140 years ago as a benevolent fund for teachers, they understand the pressures of working in education today. Through their free helpline, grants, counselling, guidance, professional and organisational development services, they work with hundreds of organisations and thousands of staff across the sector. The impact can be lifesaving, and more teachers, lecturers and support staff turn to them for help each year.
They have ambitious plans for the future, as they grow to meet the needs of an ever-changing education sector. They are focused on their vision of everyone working in education feeling respected, supported, resilient and committed.
Education Support are looking for an experienced digital fundraising specialist with the appetite to lead the management and development of their digital fundraising activity.
They have a strong direct mail programme, and a huge opportunity to increase their supporter base through organic and paid digital channels.
Working closely with fundraising and communications colleagues, you will develop, test, optimise and manage a wide range of digital fundraising activity.
They are a small, passionate team, and you will have the chance to lead innovation projects and have a huge impact very quickly.
To succeed in this role, you will have extensive experience of a wide range of digital fundraising techniques, and a strong understanding of how fundraising works within a wider digital communication strategy.
You will be a team player, able to work effectively with colleagues from different teams to ensure that digital activity is relevant, impactful and successfully drives supporters to take action.
