A well-regarded animal welfare charity is currently seeking a Senior Philanthropy Officer to join their team on a permanent basis, based at their head office in London.

You will have responsibility for the major donor budget and contribute to target setting, monitoring and analysis, whilst maintaining the charity's current relationship with major donors, and developing new relationships via excellent stewardship (including feedback reports, mailings, phone calls and face-to-face meetings).

You will be developing and managing both the major donor direct marketing programme and stewardship programme, also providing line management support to the Philanthropy Executive.

The charity is looking for someone with at least 2 years' experience in major donor fundraising, with extensive knowledge of the principles of fundraising and a history of achieving and exceeding income targets of over £200k. You will have experience of writing persuasive and engaging appeals, and of building strong and effective relationships with donors.

Line management experience is not required for this role. The charity envisages that this role would be ideal for someone looking to take a step-up into a more senior position with increased responsibilities in order to advance their career and to build on a strong background in major donor fundraising.
