Feedback – Fundraising Coordinator, London
Luogo di lavoro: Estero
Scadenza: 14 novembre 2016
Feedback is an environmental organisation that campaigns to end food waste at every level of the food system. We catalyse action on eliminating food waste globally, working with governments, international institutions, businesses, NGOs, grassroots organisations and the public to change society’s attitude toward wasting food. We run a number of high profile campaigns and offer an expert voice on food waste – recently featuring in Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s major series ‘War on Waste’.
We are a friendly team, priding ourselves on maintaining a positive and values-led organisation. We aim to provide a flexible working environment with a good work/life balance and we welcome interest from candidates who are returning work after maternity leave or career breaks.
Feedback applies its Equal Opportunities Policy at all stages of recruitment and selection. Shortlisting, interviewing and selection is carried out without regard to gender, sexual orientation, marital status, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origins, religion or belief, age or trade union membership.
About the Role:
The Fundraising Coordinator – Major Appeals, will play a key role in building the organisation’s capacity for fundraising from individual donors and help to develop other key income streams including digital fundraising. At present Feedback is mainly funded by income from trusts and grants, but we are in the process of launching a major appeal to diversify our income and take the organisation to a new level so that we can fund the battle against food waste for the next three years.
The Fundraising Coordinator – Major Appeals, will plan events, research donors and monitor the overall progress of the major donors appeal. The postholder will work to engage supporters, create connections and develop the organisation’s networks.

A key part of the role will be communicating the work of the organisation to different audiences and types of supporters.
