Since 1985 Freedom from Torture has been the only UK human rights organization dedicated to treating and supporting torture survivors who seek refuge in the UK. We do this primarily through psychological therapies but also services which document torture forensically, practical legal and welfare support and creative groups.

Thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers – as well as thousands of passionate supporters and funders – thousands of torture survivors have been able to rebuild their lives in incredibly difficult circumstances.

We are looking to recruit a highly skilled individual giving fundraiser to lead a team of five delivering £5.6m a year. Reporting to the Director of Fundraising and Communications, you will need a demonstrable record of achievement leading teams to deliver success through direct marketing, digital and legacy fundraising.

You will be equally adept at donor acquisition and retention, have excellent people management and influencing skills, highly developed financial acumen and a genuine passion for changing the lives of survivors of torture. You will show a real flair for creating supporter journeys that can encompass everything from campaign activist to long term financial supporter, through targeted communications, first rate supporter care and a real understanding of the needs of our donors.

Knowledge of GDPR and other areas of fundraising compliance essential.
