Gifts in Wills contribute a third of RNIB’s total annual income and half of all voluntary income. Legacy gifts are therefore critical to RNIB’s ability to fund its work and achieve its mission.
After a period of extensive structural and cultural change across the organisation, there are new opportunities to reach our supporters and customers, increasing the number of legacy supporters in our pipeline and increasing the number of gifts in Wills to RNIB. This will be enhanced by our new strategy, legacy proposition and integrated brand campaign.
We are looking for a proactive and motivated team player, with outstanding interpersonal and organisational skills, to join our ambitious Legacy Marketing team, at a very important and exciting stage in our journey. You will be responsible for supporting in the delivery of our cold legacy acquisition marketing activity to new audiences and RNIB customers.
You will also manage legacy enquiries and requests from new prospects and existing supporters, to provide an excellent and memorable supporter experience and keep our supporters engaged with RNIB’s mission.

You will have experience in a marketing support role, with an understanding of marketing techniques and channels. You will also have experience of providing exceptional experiences when managing enquiries and queries from the public.
You will work collaboratively with teams and colleagues across the organisation and use your influencing skills to inspire stakeholders to support and help communicate our Legacy strategy.
Your awareness of the external fundraising environment and data governance, as well as your curiosity to learn about the principles, methods and practices of legacy fundraising will ensure we maintain our high standards of practice.
This is a busy and varied role, and the ability to work under pressure and manage multiple priorities is essential.
You’ll welcome the opportunity to work within a supportive team, building influential relationships at all levels both internally and externally to help increase our pool of legacy supporters and secure future income to meet the growing need for our services.
