Role

Are you a highly organised individual with experience of diary management, working to strict deadlines and working under pressure? Then join Shelter as a Logistics Administrator and you could soon be playing a vital support role within our in-house Direct Dialogue fundraising team.

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change with individuals, in communities, across society and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

Shelter's in-house F2F and D2D fundraising team currently operates across London and the South East, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Scotland. There are also in-house D2D teams in London, Leeds and Liverpool. Our focus is on gaining quality new supporters, and F2F & D2D fundraising currently delivers around 85% of Shelter's new regular donors. What's more, within the wider fundraising team, we're busy creating a pioneering 3 year strategy that includes a major transformation of the fundraising division, so now is a particularly exciting time to join us.

About the role

Reporting to the National Logistics Manager, you'll provide vital support to make sure our teams have access to the locations, equipment and administrative support they need to fundraise effectively. We'll also rely on you to carry out research, arrange new fundraising opportunities and liaise with local authorities to secure access to council managed sites when necessary. Monitoring and maintaining stock levels of fundraising materials and ordering and despatching fresh stock will be important too.

About you

You'll need to be numerate and accurate with experience of using databases and computer packages and be able to work in a busy environment to a number of different deadlines. There's lots to learn and lots to do, so time management and organisational skills will be very important, but it's a great way for you to get to understand the cause and sector. Experience of working with external agencies would be useful, but we're more interested in your creativity, willingness to try new things and embrace responsibility.

Benefits

We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, childcare vouchers, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
