Roles within the Irish Red Cross

Home Careers Irish Red Cross

We are currently seeking to fill the following roles:
Individual Giving Manager

SUMMARY OF ROLE:
The Individual Giving Manager is a key position within the fundraising team.

The role’s main responsibility is to lead the development and management of Irish Red Cross individual giving programme and activities, generating one-off and regular gifts through multiple channels, including but not limited to:
- Direct mail appeals – warm and cold
- Donor newsletters & surveys
- EDMs & monthly e-newsletter
- Telemarketing
- Donation pages and other online giving platforms
- Digital acquisition/lead generation through social media
- DRTV
- Tax-back on donations

Individual giving (IG) includes low and mid-level gifts up to €1,000. A key sideways relationship is with the philanthropy executive responsible for major gifts and legacies, many of which originate from donors who come on board at lower gift levels.

The IG programme has been through a period of strong growth and consolidation, with the ground laid for further expansion once resources are put in place to facilitate it. The role offers the chosen candidate great scope to influence the broad fundraising future of the Irish Red Cross (IRC). The role will build sustainable income from the IRC’s key demographic and emerging audiences, building incremental growth through research, testing and, where proven, rolling out cost-effective IG programmes which engage, retain and build loyalty with donors.

We are seeking an outstanding candidate with relevant experience and exceptional leadership, ambition, motivation and requisite skills to drive the strategies in this area. This is a demanding role that requires high levels of dynamism, energy and innovation.
