Data Analyst and Communications Officer

Data Analyst and Communications Officer

We are looking for an enthusiastic person with some experience in data management and analysis – to join our fundraising team and help raise funds to grow our work supporting those living with sickle cell.

In this newly created role, you will provide day to day support to the fundraising team by producing data reports and effective communications to enable the Society to raise the funds it needs to continue to grow.

Ideally, you will have experience of working with a CRM database (Raiser’s Edge), but this isn’t essential – a willingness to learn and get stuck in is what matters. The post-holder will ensure the membership and donors’ database (Raiser’s Edge) is up to date and report back on results, whilst ensuring data compliance and implementation of data projects.

You will be highly proficient in the use of business IT systems in particular Microsoft Excel to analyse data, and you will also have a degree of experience in producing detailed and insightful reports.

The Sickle Cell Society exists to support and represent people affected by sickle cell, to improve their overall quality of life. Data plays a vital part in helping us to reach that aim, by helping us better know our membership and donors, and by ensuring that we continue to raise the money needed to deliver services and support to the sickle cell community.

You will also support the development of our fundraising communications, monitoring performance across all channels driving best practice and income growth. You will generate and develop engagement through Facebook by producing e-marketing fundraising communications with responsibility for your own copywriting, including thanking our wonderful donors via the most appropriate communication channels.
