Fundraising Campaign Manager, Global’s Make Some Noise

Job description…

We’re looking for an outstanding individual to help lead our high-profile charity appeal on the UK’s biggest commercial radio brands. The Fundraising Campaign Manager is responsible for developing and delivering Make Some Noise activity across Global’s brands and the charity’s own platforms.

Who we are…

Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity that funds and empowers projects helping disadvantaged children, young people and their families. We use Global’s much-loved radio brands – Heart, Capital, Radio X, Classic FM, LBC, Smooth, Capital Xtra and Gold – as well as digital and outdoor platforms to give a voice to small projects across the UK that don’t get heard.

What you’ll be doing…

If you tuned-in to any of Global’s stations over the past couple of months you will have heard Make Some Noise’s fundraising activities, including: Heart’s Jamie Theakston who cycled 650 miles, raising over £500k; Smooth’s Kate Garraway appeared in 5 West End shows in one evening; Capital’s Roman Kemp undertook a series of challenges across the UK; and the Classic FM team set a world record by pushing a piano from our offices in Leicester Square to the Royal Albert Hall.

From conceiving each concept right through to delivery, Make Some Noise Fundraising Campaign Managers are at the centre of these activities. They lead each project, ensuring it runs smoothly, creates compelling content, achieves our fundraising targets and delivers a great ROI.

In addition to content-led fundraising, the role will drive the strategy and delivery for fundraising initiatives that can be rolled out on Global’s local stations across the UK. This will include a hands-on role in the engagement and operational delivery of Make Some Noise Day activities for Global staff at locations across the UK.

You will be assigned responsibility for other key areas of income, according to the priorities of the charity. For example, our community budget or challenge portfolio, such as treks, runs and walks, which involves planning strategy, driving income and ensuring excellent participant care and communications. You will also be responsible for implementing and sourcing systems and processes to support fundraising and ensure a great supporter experience.

Your forward-thinking attitude and commercial awareness will help you stay on the look-out for the next opportunity to raise more money and maximize coverage for the charities we support. You will be continuously up to date with regulations and best practice.

You will have the following skills and experience…

You will have at least 5 years’ experience of successful project/account management, ideally in a charity, media, events or client-focused environment.

You’ll have a solid grasp of fundraising and marketing principles, understanding personal motivations, how to inspire and reward individuals and groups, and how to communicate your key messages.

You will be a creative, innovative thinker and back this up by putting in place robust processes and end-to-end thinking.

You’ll be a strong line manager, able to inspire and support your direct report.

You will be used to hitting demanding deadlines under pressure, whilst adept at adjusting plans if situations change.

You’ll be confident dealing with senior management and getting the best out of high-profile talent.

You will be comfortable working across digital, social and video platforms.

You will have a good knowledge of Global’s brands and audiences and be comfortable working in an extremely fast-paced environment.

You will have an excellent head for figures and able to manage complex budgets and work to stretching targets.

You’ll have impeccable communication skills – written and verbal – and be a confident relationship builder, quick to understand other points of view and how to respond positively to these.

A proven experience of charity and fundraising operations is an advantage.
