Administrator - Direct Dialogue Fundraising

21,762-22,712 pa (pro rata, 22 hours per week) plus excellent benefits

Fixed term contract until July 2018

Closing date: Sunday 7th January 2018 at 11.30 pm

We’re looking for a proactive individual with great administrative skills, to join us as an Administrator - Direct Dialogue Fundraising and assist with the administrative running of our in-house and Street Academy teams.

Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.

Fundraising is at the heart of Shelter’s success. Indeed, in 2016/17 our award winning team generated gross income of over £30m and has plans to grow this to £45m by 2019/20. Individual Giving makes up a large percentage of our income, with our Direct Dialogue team playing its part by generating over £20m per annum. And, with a pioneering three-year strategy in place that includes a major transformation of our Fundraising Division, now’s a particularly exciting time to join us.

About the role
Providing vital administrative support to the Door-to-Door and Face-to-Face teams is just one aspect of this interesting and varied role. You’ll also get to work with the Regional F2F Manager and Direct Dialogue Admin Manager to identify potential private site fundraising opportunities. Contacting venues directly and liaising with promotional-space agencies to book sites will be important too, as will monitoring results and evaluating feedback from our activities at private sites to ensure continual improvement. And, when it comes to keeping relevant databases up-to-date and accurate, ensuring all sign-ups are processed promptly, helping out with invoicing or monitoring stock levels of fundraising materials, again, we'll rely on you to deliver

About you
To succeed, you’ll need to be numerate and accurate, with a background in admin and a proven ability to use databases and computer packages. We’ll also be looking for experience of working to, and meeting, a number of different deadlines and liaising with external agencies. Results-driven and commercially aware, you enjoy being part of a busy team, have good all-round communication skills and are not afraid to think creatively, challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas when appropriate.

Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave (pro rata), the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.
