 Fundraising & Membership Assistant (Ref: CIG4.15)

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Fundraising & Membership Assistant to support our Fundraising & Membership Team. You will carry out a variety of administrative, database and project management tasks relating to memberships, fundraising and events and will get the chance to build relationships with our supporters.

You will already have worked in fundraising, marketing and communications (perhaps in an internship) and will welcome the opportunity to develop your career and gain next-level experience. You’ll have used relational databases, preferably a fundraising database (and ideally Raiser’s Edge).

You will need strong administration and database management skills, experience of using Microsoft Word and Excel, and an aptitude for figures. It’s essential that you have the ability to work to deadlines while maintaining high standards, and that you can work flexibly – whether on your own, or as part of a team.

Some evening and weekend work may be required to assist at Horniman events for members and for the general public.  A basic DBS disclosure is required for this post.

For further information and to apply, please download the application pack.

The closing date for completed applications is 10am on Wednesday 3rd June 2015. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 17th June 2015.
