Amnesty International UK (AIUK) wants to inspire and mobilise more people with its message of freedom, justice and equality. To do this, we are searching for a Tele-fundraising Manager who can lead a dynamic team of telefundraisers who play a significant role in raising income for our life-changing work. You’ll play a key part in delivering AIUK’s fundraising strategy and targets for growth and you’ll be helping to create a just world in which everyone can live a life of freedom and dignity because human rights are valued and upheld.
About the role
With our eight million members, supporters and activists worldwide, Amnesty International is the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation. We need to reach more people and engage them to support us, so that we can continue protecting human rights globally. As the Tele-fundraising Manager, you will be responsible for the management of AIUK’s In-house Tele-fundraising team who contact our prospect and existing supporters to support us with a monthly gift or encourage them to participate in our campaign work.
We have two teams of Telefundraisers who report into a Team Leader, and you’ll be responsible for managing both Team Leaders. You will respond to the campaign briefs issued by teams commissioning in-house calling activities. You will design, cost up and lead the delivery of telefundraising campaigns to meet targets and deliver a stellar supporter experience. You will monitor and report on results, adjusting campaigns as necessary. You must be well versed in fundraising regulation and legislation that is applicable to telefundraising and data, and you will ensure that our in-house activity is compliant with this and the organisational values of AIUK.
You will bring your telefundraising expertise to how we engage with telefundraising agency partners, ensuring that they carry out campaigns on our behalf in an appropriate manner that complies with our values and policies and protects our respected reputation.
You will have significant experience of managing an outbound telemarketing operation, including the setting of standards and monitoring performance, as well as working with complex supporter databases. You will be highly numerate, able to use various sources of management information to cost a campaign on a per call basis, managing the in-house team as a break-even cost centre. Your excellent leadership skills will mean you will be able to motivate a large team to perform to expected standards and targets. You will also play a role on the Individual Giving management team, bringing your telefundraising and management experience to benefit the wider team.
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they are denied. Already our network of over seven million people is making a difference in almost every country in the world. Whether we are applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we are all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are enjoyed by all.
We are dedicated to being an inclusive employer and offer the following benefits:
- 35 days annual leave FTE (including bank holidays) moving to 37 after 5 years service
- Generous pension where 2-5% employee contribution is matched at 6-9% by AIUK
- 6 months full pay enhanced maternity / adoption / shared parental
- Life Assurance of 4 times annual salary
- Opportunities to volunteer at major events
- Flexible working wherever possible
- Interest free Travel / Bike / Computer loans
- Range of wellbeing and social activities
Amnesty International UK puts equity, diversity, and inclusion at the core of our values. We want to be an organisation that tackles structural discrimination and prejudice, and we are committed to becoming an actively anti-racist organisation. Part of this commitment means we are looking to increase diversity in our organisation. We therefore welcome applications from communities across the UK and particularly encourage applications from people of colour, those identifying as trans or non-binary and disabled folk as they are underrepresented at the organisation.
