We will look to you to dynamically engage supporters with the legacy and In Memory message, convert loyal supporters to become legacy pledgers and support stewarding activity to retain and increase the pledge to gift ratio. You will oversee supplier partner relationships and produce regular performance reporting too.

You will also have sound knowledge of fundraising regulation including, telephone regulation, PCIDSS, UK Charity Law, Gambling Commission and Data Protection legislation and policy.
