OCA is launching a new fundraising appeal for our vital scientific research into ovarian cancer. We would be very grateful if an Individual Giving specialist could help us with the development, delivery etc. of this campaign.

What will you be doing?

We are looking for someone to develop compelling digital and mailing direct marketing campaigns.

Key tasks:

  • project development – developing a creative and compelling ask, the communications plan and the delivery plan
  • data strategy – helping out our Data Officer to develop data segments
  • delivery of the project – work with the Communications Team to create and deliver the digital and paper mailings
  • monitoring and analyse - create a KPI tracker to analyse the campaign, and identify key learnings that the charity can use to optimise future campaigns.

You will work closely with the Head of Fundraising and the Data Officer, as well as be a valued member of the Funding Appeal cross-department working group. Individual Giving is still a relatively new area of fundraising for OCA, but one which has huge potential. 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with 3 + years’ experience in Individual Giving with the skills to develop compelling digital and mailing direct marketing campaigns.

It is not necessary to have worked at a research funder previously, although this would be a bonus.

What difference will you make?

During this time of Covid, as all charities will understand, we have had to work quickly and collaboratively to amend our fundraising plans for the year. We welcome any furloughed fundraising specialists to temporarily join our team in a voluntary capacity to raise much needed funds during this time.

What's in it for the volunteer?

We hope to give you an insight into working for a cancer research funder and the opportunity and exciting challenge to build a new funding appeal from bottom up.
