Exciting fundraising opportunities - CTS is seeking two experienced fundraisers to join its team.
Individual Giving Manager -
With its mission to communicate the truths of the Catholic faith, CTS is one of the oldest and most inspiring Catholic charities. The CTS publishes high quality, affordable books and resources that help Catholics gain a deeper understanding of their faith and share it with others. We support prisons and university chaplaincies with free materials such as bibles and booklets about church teaching, prayer and the sacraments.
There is lots of potential for growth and innovation with a chance to truly make this role your own. You will work closely with the Head of Fundraising and Communications to develop and implement the individual acquisition, retention and development strategy. In addition, you will use various direct marketing approaches, online and offline, to improve and grow supporter engagement. You will also manage the database ensuring that it is in line with the requirements of the individual giving programme. Finally, you will have some responsibility for legacies which will include preparing collateral for campaigns.
You will be a first class fundraiser with entrepreneurial flair, plenty of direct marketing experience and an empathy with the Christian faith. You will be enthusiastic about supporting and communicating the truths of the Catholic faith to current and potential supporters.

Community Giving Manager -
This is a brand new role and income stream for CTS and thus offers the unique opportunity to make the job your own. You will build strong relationships with external stakeholders such as priests, parishioners, and teachers. You will make appeals to parishes across the country to make one-off asks and more importantly bring in regular donors. From this, you will develop and train a network of volunteers to sustain and build on the appeals. You will develop presentations, toolkits and resources to achieve this as well as organising and running training events for volunteers. Beyond this, you will nurture relationships within the Catholic education sector and other networks, movements and events to grow CTS income and engagement within the Catholic world.
You will be a creative and innovative fundraiser with a good knowledge of the Roman Catholic faith and a strong commitment to promote the practice and values of Catholicism among Catholics and non-Catholics
