Database & Fundraising Systems Manager
Fauna & Flora International

Salary: £27,000 – £32,000
Start Date: As soon as possible

Duration of Contract: Open
Location: Cambridge, UK

This is an exciting time for FFI.  We have a new five year Business Plan, supported by a new fundraising strategy that aims to drive growth through innovation.

As we look to grow FFI’s fundraising – developing our existing supporters and recruiting new ones – we recognise that amongst our greatest assets is our database and the wealth of information it holds. With the right management and development, this asset will provide us with clear insights into our fundraising, our supporters and their relationship and journey with FFI. With the right development, it will help us to transform our fundraising – offering greater efficiencies and automations and making our fundraising processes, and those we share with other teams such as Finance, more streamlined and robust.

Reporting to the Head of Supporter Recruitment & Development, you will manage and develop our fundraising CRM database and other systems, making them more effective, efficient and valuable to FFI. You will:

  • Drive projects to introduce greater automation and seamless relationships between systems within and outside of Fundraising
  • Research and scope out opportunities for improvements and upgrades to existing systems, or for new systems
  • Work closely with colleagues in Fundraising to utilise the database for mailings, appeals and major donor fundraising
  • Help us to gain ever greater insights into our supporters and our fundraising activities through the database
  • Utilise the database to help us offer a greater relationship and personalisation with our supporters
  • Work with colleagues in the Finance Team to deliver high-value management information and analysis, contribute to quarterly forecasting and to internal process improvements where appropriate
  • Help us to improve the way fundraising systems integrate with those in Finance

You will be an experienced database manager, with a proven track record of developing the database into a valuable tool for its user. Ideally, you will have experience of fundraising and will understand the importance of a charity’s supporters, as well as understanding the concepts of donor journeys, lifecycles and donor development.

You will be able to analyse complicated datasets and provide detailed insights that will inform our fundraising and our knowledge of our supporters. You will have demonstrable experience of identifying and developing new systems and processes, including CRMs, and of developing automation and integration of systems.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work for a ground breaking and entrepreneurial organisation at the forefront of global conservation. Your work will help us to more effectively raise money to save endangered species and habitats across the planet.
