The NSPCC is inspired by a belief that we can make a difference for all children. That's why we aim to end cruelty to children in the UK. Even if it takes many generations to realise it, we achieve much more for children by having this inspirational vision.
The role of Fundraising is to provide the resources needed by the Society to end cruelty to children by continuing to inspire our existing supporters and expanding our supporter network. Unlike many other children's charities, over 80 per cent of the NSPCC income comes from voluntary donations so we are all reliant on the generosity and commitment of our supporters - large and small. To continue on this journey and achieve even more for children in the UK, the Fundraising Division is implementing its strategy to 2016.
The strategy is a step change in all our fundraising activities and is designed to ensure that NSPCC fundraising is able to maintain its leadership status in terms of best practice, innovation and growth.
What it's like to work here
The division consists of the following eight departments:
- Major Supporters
- Individual Giving
- Corporate Partnerships
- Community Fundraising
- Legacy & Tribute Fundraising
- Fundraising Operations
- Strategy and Performance
- Business Performance Unit
- The division also includes a dedicated Communications Fundraising team.
Our supporters expect us to be an organisation that is challenging, dynamic and independent. At the NSPCC, fundraising is integrated in everything we do and is thought of in all business processes so that our fundraisers are supported and enabled to raise even more money towards our vision.
What you can expect
If there is a place to make the best out of your fundraising career, it is within the NSPCC Fundraising Division. You will be provided with outstanding training opportunities from day one. We ask for a lot of commitment and hard work from our fundraisers. We do understand that this level of commitment should be reciprocal and do invest heavily in our fundraisers' learning and development. You will have a comprehensive induction programme into the NSPCC's fundraising work that will set you up for gaining excellent fundraising experience and developing your expertise.
We recognise that to be truly effective and highly motivated, our fundraisers need to have plenty of opportunities to continuously feed their inspiration and passion for the cause. There are ample opportunities to visit NSPCC services and see and hear about the direct work we do with children and real life stories, opportunities to volunteer at some of the most spectacular and unique fundraising events, opportunities to attend inspirational webinars from the comfort of your office chair. You just have to take them.
What we expect from you
We are proud of people who work here. They were able to join the NSPCC because they truly believe in making the difference to childrens' lives through their fundraising expertise. They are talented, ambitious, driven and creative individuals who are helping to make this fundraising division the best it can be.
Besides key skills and potential to achieve great things in fundraising as a career, we expect professionalism and integrity in everything our fundraisers do. NSPCC cannot survive without our supporters and it is very much our responsibility to create a positive and rewarding experience for them so that we see their support to continue until we end cruelty to children in the UK.
