We offer more than just a career, we offer the opportunity to support our global movement in a dynamic and inclusive environment with a real focus on personal development.

Due to growth within our London team, we are recruiting for a Supporter Engagement Officer who will be responsible for London and the South East of England (Essex and East London).

This role has particular responsibility for prioritising the growth and nurturing of the volunteer network, building relationships and resourcing our community volunteers within London and the South East of England (Essex and East London).

Principal duties include:

  • Promote the formation of more local groups, to encourage our community volunteers to meet and support and encourage one another in their efforts.
  • Steward, develop and closely manage certain donor relationships where appropriate.
  • Work to proactively create opportunities to share the Mary’s Meals story, with the purpose of inspiring action.
  • Contribute highly creative ideas for new fundraising campaigns or initiatives and play a significant role in formulating and implementing approved campaigns in the local community.
  • Support our community volunteers with resources to ensure our network is empowered and enabled, ensuring responsibility for the promotion of our campaigns and materials with our movement.
  • Act as an ambassador for Mary’s Meals, representing the organisation at public engagements and supporter events – and, where necessary, delivering speeches or presentations to a wide range of audiences. 
  • Collaborate and work closely with the Major Giving and Partnerships Team to maximise opportunities with corporate partners in Essex and East London.
  • Work closely with the communications team to promote fundraising stories and events and provide input into creative and engaging fundraising resources and educational materials.
