About the organisation

In 1890 a group of engineers decided that their institution should do something for fellow engineers in times of need. Today, the organisation has grown into a registered charity, IET Connect, and we exist to ensure that no engineer or their family needs to face life’s challenges without support. With 168,000 current members of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and many previous members spread across 150 countries this is undoubtably a challenge.

This is an exciting time for IET Connect, with an expanding team and new brand and visual identity due to be launched in the autumn. Our vision is to increase the wellbeing of engineers and their families worldwide and we are embarking on a new strategy for 2019-2022 which will see us doubling the numbers of engineers and their families we support by 2022.

The role

This is a new role for the organisation, so you can really make your mark in the delivery of our vision. Our new strategy involves us working more collaboratively across teams, and for the individual giving fundraiser, it means testing new acquisition methods to increase our donor base, improving the depth and quality of our relationship with our supporters and increasing income.

 Some of the immediate actions include:

  • supporting the launch of our exciting new brand and visual identity 
  • developing and embedding an individual giving fundraising strategy which will include as a basis regular giving, gifts in wills, online giving and development of a lottery and 3rd party events
  • managing and monitoring our new acquisition programme, including digital marketing campaigns
  • improving the use and impact of data to help us understand our supporters

Although this 35 hours per week role is based in Central London, some UK  travel to will be required, as well as evening and weekend work.

In addition to a generous salary package we also offer 25 days annual leave (plus Bank Holidays) and an excellent pension scheme, amongst our other benefits. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join our organisation and be part of our passionate, dedicated team where you can make a real difference to the well-being of engineers and their families worldwide.
