We're looking to appoint a Philanthropy Officer to work closely with the Philanthropy team on an exciting appeal and our existing philanthropy programme.

Job title: Philanthropy Officer
Job type: Full-time
Location: North West London
Salary: GBP32,025 - GBP37,120
Reference: KSPO66

At the MS Society we put people living with MS at the centre of everything we do, and it's this commitment that unites us across the UK. Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure, but until then, we will do all that we can to enable people with MS to live life, knowing that they do not have to face MS alone.

Now is an exciting time to join us. Our investment in research is going to double over the coming decade and we have developed a research-focused national appeal, Stop MS Appeal. The appeal is well underway and is a major focus of our work. This will allow us to invest millions in groundbreaking research, all with the goal of ending MS as we know it.

We have big aspirations and we need brilliant people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.

Job details

You will have a proven track record of securing major gifts and consistently achieving or exceeding income targets. With strong relationship building skills, you will have previous experience of identifying, cultivating and recruiting donors to solicit new gifts.

This is a great opportunity for a philanthropy fundraiser looking to build on existing experience. You'll have your chance to make your mark in the sector and be involved in our Society's GBP100 million Stop MS Appeal. You'll be a dynamic and confident major donor fundraiser who can help us maximise income growth from high net worth individuals.

We offer 27 days annual leave (excluding bank holidays), a travel loan, supported developmental opportunities and various other benefits.

Flexible working arrangements including home working/compressed hours will be considered.
