Here at the Ramblers we’re passionate about helping everyone everywhere find their feet, connecting people and protecting the spaces we all love to walk. Join Britain’s biggest walking charity to help more people enjoy the benefits of walking!
The Ramblers is entering an exciting time of change - and the new Membership and Fundraising team is at the centre of the action! At the heart of the Ramblers lies our wonderful community of 105,000 members, enabling us to fulfil our mission across the length and breadth of Great Britain. We have an incredibly loyal base of members, but we cannot afford to stand still. If we are to thrive, grow and remain relevant in a changing landscape, we need to evolve and connect with more of the UK’s 9 million walkers. Are you up for the challenge?!
We are looking for a highly skilled Head of Membership. This is a senior role within the new Membership and Fundraising team, reporting to the Director of Membership and Fundraising. You will be expected to lead from the front, during a time of organisational change, to enable the Ramblers to sustainably grow our membership population and associated income. By understanding the needs, wants and behaviours of new and existing audiences, you’ll help the Ramblers grow our reach and relevance, evolving the membership proposition to reach more of the UK’s 9 million walkers.
This role will lead the development of a strong coalition of membership advocates across the volunteer and staff team, to build a new approach to attracting, retaining and engaging members and supporters. You’ll reshape the Ramblers membership team, build foundations for growth across services, member engagement and new member acquisition. You will bring essential leadership across the many work streams that feed into a successful membership function, working closely with the director to craft and embed a new membership strategy that delivers a significant and vital core income for the Ramblers.
You will work closely and collaboratively with the new Head of Fundraising and Head of Engagement to build a strong case for support, and an integrated single supporter view to grow the Ramblers reach, relevance and impact. You will be a key stakeholder in the Data & Digital Transformation programme, using evidence-based insights to inform strategy.
