This is your opportunity to join Greenpeace as a part-time Major Gifts Officer and play a vital role in delivering on our commitment to raise at least £4.25 million in major gifts in 2021.

Greenpeace is an international non-profit global campaigning organisation. Our independence and global reach enable us to stand for positive change through action in order to defend nature and promote peace. We investigate and expose global environmental problems, confront those in positions of power and present alternative solutions.

In this key role you’ll get to play a big part in delivering on our 2021 major gifts target, providing essential financial support for our vital work around the world. Taking on a very externally-facing role within the Key Relationships fundraising team, you’ll manage a portfolio of individual major donors in the £10,000-50,000 range and develop robust, lasting relationships with these crucial supporters at both personal and organisational levels.

You’ll also be expected to drive new prospects into the major gifts programme, which will involve overseeing an existing prospect strategy, task managing a freelance prospect researcher and assuming responsibility for account managing a number of these prospects. A further aspect of the role is to take the lead in planning and delivering a key fundraising events programme – and, of course, to engage with the full breadth of Greenpeace’s innovative and fast-paced campaigns, so as to identify opportunities to match these with donors’ interests.

The role will be remote initially as we continue to be home based under COVID-19. However, the candidate should be able to commute into our London office in the long term.

You'll have:

  • A relevant track record within major gift fundraising, including building relationships, developing bespoke stewardship plans and closing significant gifts.
  • Experience of major donor prospecting and research.
  • Experience of planning and delivering fundraising events.
  • Proven ability to line/task manage staff and/or freelancers.
  • An understanding of and passion for the aims, objectives and values of Greenpeace.

We give you: The opportunity to continue to develop both personally and professionally, taking advantage of the wide range of learning and development opportunities available to our staff. We offer great benefits such as a generous pension scheme, subsidised lunches, free yoga and a wealth of well-being resources, just to name a few. 

Our commitment to diversity: Greenpeace UK is committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in environmental and campaigning organisations and we’re committed to doing what we can to correct this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGTBQIA; people who have a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class now or in the past.
