The Green Party is recruiting a Fundraising and Membership Manager to help ensure that we are maximising the interest in the party.  We have outstanding systems for managing the input of information from members and supporters, as well as very good mechanisms for recruiting members and donors, but we need to go that stage further.  With an increase in 2015 of over 50,000 members and 60,000 supporters we need to identify who are the key individuals who can help us and recruit more members and supporters.  The use of the telephone, email and mailings have been highly successful for the party in fundraising, but we need more capacity in a managerial role to ensure that all work is scheduled, managed and delivered on time and successfully.  This role will build on the work of the existing team and will be supported by the Fundraising and Operations Director, who comes with a depth of experience in this area to help support this role.

Ideally we need an individual who has helped build a fundraising operation from the ground up, has an outstanding knowledge of data management and is able to produce good quality copy for emails, letters and scripts.  By utilizing the input of the Director and outside suppliers, this role could help build the experience of an individual to take senior fundraising roles in the future and indeed build the team at the Green Party Head Quarters.
