• Answering ad-hoc queries about the Charity from internal or external sources.
• Influencing, motivating and persuading others to fundraise, sponsor and/or give.
• Providing excellent donor care at all times, and communicating with donors in a professional and clear manner, taking into account potential sensitive or personal circumstances and balancing requests with the requirements of processes and controls.
• Creating communication and marketing materials for the Charity. This could include writing content for webpages, printed materials (e.g., fundraising literature) and/or information for staff, patients and carers.
• Confidently using social media to help build and nurture a strong community of supporters.
