To support the organisation’s operational vision, a Fundraising Strategy is being developed to underpin the funding necessary to achieve these goals.
The Supporter Engagement Manager is one of four critical roles identified within the Fundraising Strategy necessary to meet the fundraising objectives. The role forms part of the charity’s two-tier management structure encompassing four charity trustees and 10 Management Team members. There is also a wider team of dedicated volunteers in excess of 80 individuals, which we anticipate growing in number as we expand our activities further.
The Supporter Engagement Manager would focus on creating a culture of engagement with the overall supporter base. This role recognises a need to address the gap left from more traditional fundraising techniques, engaging individuals who wish to support the charity’s activities but are unwilling or unable to take part in fundraising activities in a traditional sense.
The Supporter Engagement Manager will build relationships with various groups of supporters to encourage them to feel involved and emotive about the charity’s activities and needs, encouraging aspects such as regular giving, payroll giving, word-of-mouth awareness, legacy giving, etc.
Ultimately the Supporter Engagement Manager will encourage the “Fundraising Conversation”, backing our supporters and volunteers with the information and resources they need to keep a steady flow of cash coming into the organisation.
It is anticipated that, with the support of the Board of Trustees and Management Team, the Supporter Engagement Manager would recruit dedicated and casual volunteers to assist with the delivery of their activities.

We are looking to increase the number of volunteer readers on our team that record daily talking newspapers for the blind. Our large studio is set up to enable two readers and a producer to work together as a team. Where we are short of volunteers you may be asked to read and produce in the studio on your own. Our second studio enables a reader to work on their own which means they also need to produce their own articles.We want to build up a more sociable environment which is why we encourage people to form teams of three or four where three of you are the readers and one at least is the main person producing the recordings. If you are interested in being a reader we will then conduct a telephone interview before bringing you into the studio for a trial run.
