We are looking for an experienced fundraising administrator to join us at an important time of growth for the organisation. This is an important role in a small and effective team which requires a highly organised, efficient person. The successful candidate will ensure our supporters receive excellent care while ensuring our database and records are managed accurately and reliably. They will take ownership of the administrative responsibilities within the team, working closely with the Fundraising and Development Manager and Fundraising Officer - trusts, foundations and major donors - to support income generation and donor communications, and with the Finance Manager to provide timely and accurate financial data.

We are looking for candidates with at least 2 years’ experience of administration, who are well-organised and capable of managing their own time. Strong experience of using databases or customer relationship management software will be key, as will the ability to adapt to new tools and programmes. Good numeracy, analytical skills and a high degree of accuracy are essential, and experience of financial record keeping is an asset. We need a candidate with good organisational skills, able to manage our online and offline systems. An understanding of GDPR and fundraising regulation is essential. The right candidate will be confident and adept at communicating with supporters and our volunteers via email, phone calls or face to face. This role often requires creativity and problem solving.  An interest in health and research charities and/or previous experience of working with people with dementia or in the older age group will be an advantage.

RICE is an independent charity and an internationally renowned centre for dementia research, diagnosis and treatment. Our research aims to improve life for people with dementia and their families and carers, and to find drug and non-drug treatments for people with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other diseases predominantly affecting older people. Our contracted NHS Memory Clinic service and allied activities also provide support to patients, families and carers. We are currently in an ambitious phase of development to significantly increase our clinical and academic research programme. We work closely with the Universities of Bath, Bristol and other research institutions, both nationally and internationally, and with the Royal United Hospital.

Applicants must have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom, and all employees of RICE are required to undergo a DBS check.

To apply by email: Please submit a CV and covering letter outlining how you meet the criteria for the role, and provide the names and contact details of two referees, indicating clearly whether we may approach your referees prior to appointment.
